Day 33, Monday – Woke up a couple times again for food but slept well beyond that. Getting more and more herself. We see our happy chatty angel more and more each day. With each smile she melts our hearts.
The most anxiously awaited news which we thought would not arrive until Wednesday came in today. A call from her oncologist sent our hearts spiraling and those few seconds saw emotions with no boundaries till we heard her voice and her first statement – “I am so very happy to tell you i have very good news” 🙂 🙂 🙂 Aanya’s bone marrow report came back showing 0% leukemia cells. 🙂 🙂 :-). They were hoping she would reach at least 0.01% which would put her in remission but she exceeded everyone’s expectations. Her oncologist stated that the whole team is extremely happy since they had not expected this. We needed to ask her 3 times to ensure we correctly understood what she was saying and that we were not just hearing something since we so wanted that to be the truth. 🙂
We are scheduled to see her oncologist on Thursday to further discuss the report and plan of action for Phase 2. She is also going to guide us and prepare us for our second opinion meeting that we have scheduled for on Friday with an oncologist at CHOP.
We have god to thank, and, all of you, our dear loved ones, for your overwhelming support and prayers for her successful recovery. With your continued support and praying, our angel will ride this wave and come out a strong winner in due course.
