100 Days

As 100 days from the stem cell transplant approaches on Wednesday, June 25, Andrea continues to feel better. They have her reporting to M.D. Anderson once or twice a week instead of every day to check her blood levels and take care of any other health concerns that arise. Also this marks the time that they reduce the immunosuppressant drugs so she can start building up her own immunity system. We're hoping the amount of pills taken a day drops from the 20's down to the teens. She is still receiving medicine through the central venous catheter. It is a long process that takes time and lots of patience.
Thank you for your continued prayers as we realize this is a long time to keep praying!

I'll think of you all day on your 100th day. That will be a day to celebrate. I wish you well. Lots of Love, Dan and Peggy

People ask me all the time about your progress. I hope that it is comforting to know that brothers and sisters in Christ...those you don't even know...are praying for you on a regular basis.

Glad to hear things continue to get better. I'll send a request out to some of my Aggie Pi Phi sisters to donate blood.

Andrea,
100 days behind you! Praying that the number of medications you take continue to decrease as your own immunity takes charge and that you feel better with each passing day.
love, mByr

What a milestone!!! 100 days is great especially since you are feeling better and not having to go to MDA everyday. I am so happy for you. I pray that the return of your strength and your healing continues.

Love, Carolyn

You and your family are in my prayers. I have not seen your mom in several years (we worked at McDonald Jr. High), but I think of her and you all the time. Stay strong in the Lord. Love, Marsha Molden
