Still On Hospital

We admitted her Friday when she finally made counts on Thursday. The kind of chemo she is getting is high dose Methotrexate which runs on a 24 hour IV drip. Before and after she has to reach certain levels of hydration. She hasn't yet gotten below the level they are looking for after chemo. That level is basically what is left of the chemo in her body...they want it out of her system.

GREAT news! While admitted she also had her triple IT (spinal tap with 3 chemos) and bone marrow test to see if there were any cancer cells left. NONE! Praise God! Baby Alaina is still in remission!

Now for her next 2 years of treatment they shouldn't need to do another bone marrow test unless she shows signs of leukemia again.

Other great news: we've passed the 3k mark on donations for Team Alaina Light the Night walk for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!! Thank you to everyone who has helped and donated to this amazing cause!

Will post pics when home!
