On the up and up

She slept from 3:30 pm yesterday afternoon and didn't get up until about 1:30 am...stayed awake for about 10 minutes, went back to sleep, and then woke up about 7:10 am, and then went back to bed. Her body is healing...

ANC shot up to 720. Her platelets are at 51 so they're going to give her some more. Usually if she's around 50, there's higher chance of nose bleeds. Around 70 almost guarantees no nose bleeds.

She's also getting healthy doses of G-CSF.

G-CSF (granulocyte-colony stimulating factor) works by encouraging the bone marrow to produce more white blood cells. G-CSF is given to stimulate the bone marrow to produce new white cells more quickly after chemotherapy.

Hello Lim's!! Brother Carter announced the link to your blog today and we were so glad to get it! We think of you often and pray for sweet Jovee's recovery. I have shared your blog link with Elder Jay Stubbs. He would always ask me how your family was doing and until I got the link to your blog I usually had to give him outdated, second and third and sometimes fourth hand information!

We love your dear family. If there's ever anything we can do for you, please don't hesitate to call on us!
