We are so rejoicing in the blessing and mercies of God today! Katie saw her Oncologist today and as usual, she had her finger "snapped". I was cautiously hoping for a bit of encouragement that I could see. I know Faith is not for the seeing. I just needed a little sight..... can you give me that?
The Lord did. He heard my cry. He answered big! The numbers we look at are her Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) and her White Blood Cell count (WBC). Today her ANC was 1130!!!! Last time it was 110. See the difference? Normal is 1500. In her life, I'm not sure she has had a ANC count that is this high. Her WBC was 5. It hasn't been that high on a day she needed a shot in a long time either. I'm so thankful. The Dr. said it was a fluke. Maybe so. He also said he would take a fluke! I know I will!
Last month after going to the Dr. and getting such a low count, I posted on facebook that even if her ANC was multiplied ten times it still wouldn't be normal. Well, her number is more than times ten and I am rejoicing! God is so good!
I was thinking about baking a goodie to celebrate, but didn't know what. Well, Linda over at Prairie Flower Farm knows all about goodies! She posted the best cupcake recipe that I've ever seen! It's called Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes! What's not to like?! You should go and check out Linda's blog, she has lots of great ideas over there! I'm going to make those right now! So blessings to you all and thank you so much for your prayers!
Truly His Mercies Are New Every Morning!
