Can't help but wonder

I can't help but wonder if Shelbie is headed towards remission of the ITP.  Her petechiae is fading and though she had a big episode this morning with bleeding gums, it would seem her platelets are raising even higher than 30.  We will probably do another check tomorrow or maybe Tuesday.  I guess we are still daring to dream.

What would be really nice is if the whole nine yards would retreat into submission, the bone marrow failure and all the other problems she and the boys face day to day.  Even if one problem, the ITP is gone, it doesn't change the fact that she is still so depleted in all the other areas of her bone marrow.  We have to keep looking for the good and watching out for the continued blessings.  Remission or not, we will keep on keeping on...Life never ceases to be interesting or hard.


  1. That would be a good thing. And even the little glimmer of hope is an answer to many prayers.
