Just watching Cinderella with Jovee...Fairy Godmother says to Cinderella "even miracles take a little time"...sometimes miracles happen when we want them to and sometimes they take a little time.

The latest miracle was finding out that Jovee should have lost some hearing but the audiologist says her hearing is perfect right now.

Jovee only has 24 more hours of chemo left. So far, as far as we know, the only side effects since Friday is that she's thrown up and lost her appetite.

Carboplatin, Melphalan, and Etoposide are supposed to give her a temperature above 100.5...All 3 drugs can reduce the production of white blood cells by the bone marrow, making her more prone to infection. This effect can begin seven days after treatment has been given, and her resistance to infection usually reaches its lowest point 10–14 days after the first day of chemotherapy.

Her ANC level today dropped a lot from yesterday; it's now at 3528 from 6208 yesterday.

We'll see.....hopefully all the healing and miracles will take place over time, the next 10 to 14 days. That's what we're praying for.

It's a beautiful day today, Memorial Day, here in Seattle. The sun is out and the temp is going to be around 67 degrees. Hope everybody has a wonderful day.
