Day 24

Blood testing day at the Cancer Center! Sarah learned about her 'platelets' and was happy to find out that they're right where they need to be! (For those of you who don't know, your platelet count affects your body's blood clotting process.) She also found out today that the first Neulasta shot has done its job! In her original blood-work, Sarah's Neutraphil (white blood cell) count was 5,800. The current count is now at 13,000!!!

Sarah's Quote-of-the-Day:
Physician's Assistant: "You really are looking very good at this point."
Sarah: "Makeup helps!"


"When I look back on the perils which have been overcome, upon the great mountain waves through which the gallant ship has driven, when I remember all that has gone wrong, and remember also all that has gone right, I feel sure we have no need to fear the tempest. Let it roar, and let it rage. We shall come through."
-Winston Churchill, 'Vote of Confidence', 7 May 1941 

"Those who trust in, lean on, and confidently hope in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides and stands fast forever." 
-Psalm 125:1
