Happy Birthday Jesus

I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas.    It was an early morning as my brothers, sister and I could not wait to see what was waiting under the tree.  I got a barbie jeep :)  It is so much fun but a little too cold outside for me today.  Feeling like Christmas though.  Hot cocoa maybe a fire....  uhmmmm. So, I have been playing with my barbie airplane and barbie car.  So fun.  I am mostly so thankful to be home for the holidays.  It is the greatest.  I  wanted to update all of my family and friends about what is going on at my house.  So here goes.....  I got 2 weeks off from clinic  Thank you Jesus.  I have been transfusion free since I was released from the Bone Marrow Transplant floor.  My counts have been slowly recovering on their own.  Hemoglobin (Red Blood)  over 9.2 and Platelets 130 also, my ANC is a whoppin 2800.  What a gift the Lord has given me.  Healthwise I look great.  My weight is up to 40 pounds.  I have been running and playing and having a normal holiday.  (which is why I have not posted lately)  I am doing so great Mommy and Daddy got to go out on a date night and we stayed with Nana and Papa Pat last weekend. I am having such a wonderful holiday being home.   Tuesday I start my scans...  GFR  which test my Kidney function.  The rest of the scans are coming up after Jan 1st.  I will post them soon.  Please keep me in your prayers we need No Evidence of Disease to qualify for Immunotherapy.  The rest of my family likes having me home.  I think my big brother is out in the back shooting paintballs at my daddy.  They look like they are having a blast.  Kyle is enjoying his new outdoor ride F150 Truck and Chloe has been riding her cool new bike all afternoon.  I think we are all about to take a break and watch a Christmas movie, light a fire and have cookies and I have to go but have a Merry Christmas I love you all.  OH!  If my sweet friends from Methodist are reading.  Your kindness really blest us.  We love the gifts.  Thank You!!!  We are truly overwhelmed by your thoughfulness. God bless you all and enjoy Christ's Birth.
