    Emily Update!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To all the prayer warriors that have been praying for our girl Emily, I have good news.
    EMILY IS IN REMISSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    There is no Aplastic Anemia. Her bone marrow shows she does have some cells. They are thin and stringy. Her ANC level will be at 1000 and that will be her new normal. Her red and white cells are depressed so her new normal will be low. The chemo that she was on has damaged her immune system and will never be normal again. However, she can play soccer, play as 1st chair on her violin, and become a veterinarian when she grows up if she wants to. She is off all meds and is no longer on a nutrapenic diet. Her life will be as normal as possible. They found out Thursday but called us today because Heatherlea (Mama Bear that she is) was pretty upset that the doctors considered her "normal". She was hoping for her blood levels and immune system to be closer to normal than that. She has excepted it now and worked through it. And will be ever vigilant in her care. She will have to be on high doses of antibiotics if she catches a cold or any other infection to help her body fight off anything she comes in contact with. They will have to keep certain meds on hand at all times just in case.
    I want to thank you all for holding her up in prayer and for holding me together when I fell apart. Still keep her in your prayers because God is Good and maybe she will improve now that the disease is no longer present. Emily had to be the one to tell me. I started crying. She said "Luna, don't cry this is good!" I told her I was crying tears of Joy. And then I told her about all of you and from where you are located around the world. She said "God is Good isn't He Luna?" I told her yes and to go score that goal. She was on her way to play soccer.
    Thank you again so much! You have no idea how happy we are but I know you can imagine. I love you all so much. Hugs, Jan

                  Jan, you brought tears to my eyes. I am so glad that Emily is doing so well. She can only get stronger from here. Grandchildren are truly a gift from God as I can attest. Continuing prayers for Emily and everyone else for that matter.

                  Hugs to you Jan, and any time you need a shoulder to cry on, you can use mine.

                      I have tears running down my cheeks - tears of joy. The wonders of our mighty God never cease to amaze me. He is so good!

                      I'll just bet you can't wait to get your hands on Emily and give her a big Luna hug!!
                      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                        You are so right Sandy! They have a very busy life so I asked them to eke me out a couple of hours so I can see them all and celebrate! I can't stop crying for joy!!!! It has been such a long hard road. Heather is having a hard time with the new "Normals" but she is working through it.
                        Her normals will be low. Thank you Sandy for all your prayers and support. Love, Jan

                            Jan, just share the news with Don and we're so excited to hear that Emily is in remission. God is good and Emily is such a trouper! Tears of joy will be flowing by many of us. Hugs from both of us. Love, Ruby and Don

                              Sounds like our Miss Emily has something important to do here and this is just a hurdle for her. God Bless her and her family. The power of prayer has always worked in my experience. Doing a happy dance for you!
