A Double Blessing Today!

This is my brother, Derik, and his lovely wife, my dear sister-in-law, Sandy.

I wanted to take a minute to thank them for taking me to my Chemo appointment today. Chemo was really fun today. Lets see! My brother made friends with at least two of the chemo patients. I think he is going to go boating with one of them. LOL! Funny thing is, I'm not kidding. This man talked to my brother while he was getting his chemo and after he was all done, stood and talked to him for a long while afterwards. He also entertained the chemo patent to his right. Lets just say, he was the life of the chemo party.

My dear sister-in-law did pay very close attention to me. LOL! They were both great.

O.K. here comes the miricles:

First, they are just amazed at my blood counts and so am I. Instead of going down, they are going up or at least staying the same.

I forgot to post them last week but here is the difference just a few weeks made.

My blood counts were up today. What a praise this is!
WBC-3.7
RBC-3.74
HGB-12.8
PMN-2.3
Platelets-312

My blood count from last week

WBC-3.7
RBC-3.70
HGB-11.9
PMN-2.2
Platelets-225

Secondly, (But the most important blessing) I got to go visit Jason, Stephaine, Faith and hope this afternoon. The babies are so cute! My couldn't be more on top of the world tonight than I am at this very moment.

I just received this update a minute ago 9:05 p.m. from Jason.

Steph and I both were able to hold a baby tonight. That is cool about twins we don't have to share! :-) I actually got to hold Hope for the first time and Steph got to hold Faith for the second time. The echocardiograms came back great for both girls and they gave them breast milk. While we were here, they gave a second feeding and they both had digested the first feeding. We haven't heard anything from Faith's head ultrasound today. We have been hearing several success stories from people that were in similar situations as we are with Faith. We will keep our faith strong!

Keep praying, God is answering your prayers concerning me and the twins. Yea!!!!
