Good News

So my sister had her appt. with the hematologist on Friday and we are so happy to find out that she will be okay. Turns out that she has severe anemia. Because she had such a low blood level her red blood cells basically quite fighting infections. This is why she was sick so much and also why she got a severe double kidney infection. She is on medicine that will help her and will just have to regularly get her blood level checked. If she gets too low she will need to get another transfusion. While this may sound bad, it is a lot better than the other alternatives they gave us. They told us that her symptoms were common of blood cancer and leukemia. We were all so scared and I am so thankful that she is going to be okay.

Today is my last day of work and then tomorrow morning we fly out to Key West. I plan to take lots of pics to show everyone. I am so excited. Lots to do here at work and then at home before the departure so I better get to it!

Glad to hear you sis is ok.

Thanks for your comment! I've learned in this whole thing that, “Never say never." My husband’s father did it to his mother and I told Jesse that I WOULD NOT BE HIS MOM. Yea... here I am. That’s great that you have parents that have been a good example of how to fight for your marriage. That’s so awesome.

Thanks for the book ideas… that’s great and I’ll be sure to look into them. Once book that has help Jess and I is the “Love and Respect” book. VERY GOOD READ!
