Daddy's update ~

Thanks for all your prayers and support. Halie is doing great!
Last week was pretty rough as she ran a pretty high fever all week up to 105 and she had really bad sores in her mouth and throat. it was miserable, but they told us it would be. Starting last Thursday, a week after transplant, the fever went away and she has been looking better and better each day. Yesterday she was practically her normal self and played with her "My Littlest Pet Shop Toys" all day long. They are planning to let her to come home Monday which will be 1 week earlier than most patients.

The only thing left for her to do is start eating. She has been on intravenous feeding for the last two weeks and she doesn't have her appetite back yet.

As far as the remaining request for prayers they did a CT scan a couple days ago. A small 1 mm spot showed up in one of her lungs. The doctors are not concerned right now and say it is something that will just need to be monitored. It is too small to even biopsy, but as a parent it is going to be a long 6 weeks before the next set of scans.

Thanks again for all your prayers and support.

Also, I'm not too good at updating these days.  My wife Jennifer did an update herself yesterday which was great. Just scroll down and read!!  There are also a few recent pictures we took during the transplant process. She looks cute as always.
