Closer to Normal

Thursday, Nov. 16, Andrea went through blood and bone marrow biopsy tests as part of the 6 month tests from the bone marrow transplant in May. She continues to be the doctor's "prize patient". He took her off all drugs so she now takes vitamins and eye drops. It will be a while before tests are back from the biopsy, but from all other indicators, the doctor expects those to have great results. He gave her the okay to eat whatever she wants. Andrea says since she hasn't had a salad since April, that's what she want to eat for the next 6 months!

Please continue to pray that her retinas in her eyes heal as quickly as her body has. She needs at least one more cataract surgery in her left eye, which should be in the next month or so. She asks for prayers for "sight to drive again".

We give Prayers of Thanksgiving for all of you, and all praise to God.

We continue to check on Andrea's progress and we are so excited that she is getting back to her "old self"!! She really is a remarkable young lady. Stay strong Andrea and remember how far you have come! I have no doubt you will continue to improve day by day! We keep you in our prayers!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

I'm so glad to hear the news of the bloodwork. What a year this has been for all of you, and I am so thankful that things are going so well.

I will continue to pray for Andrea's vision. I know it will come around. It just takes time -- more time than we would like. But I truly believe that your eyes will get better.

I was supposed to go and see Annie at Thanksgiving, but I had more eye surgery myself last Friday, so I didn't want to risk flying or trying to find an eye doctor in Manhattan. And we didn't have a chance to fly her home, so I missed her this year. She will be home at Christmas.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving together. I think of you daily, and send my prayers up for you and your family.




Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!
