Remission Continues

Brandon's clinic visit was this past Thursday and I am happy to report that remission remains in full swing. His counts were excellent. Platelets were well over 200,000 ANC was over 2,000 and Hemaglobin was over 12.0
I can't even tell you how elated we are. I had been somewhat worried because a few days prior to our appointment, the boys had wrestled with each other pretty intensly and Brandon had woken up the next day, with quite a bit of petechaie on his neck, chest and arms. I was certainally releived to see that for sure the petechaie was only a result of the intense wrestling.
We are thankful to God for this complete, full, and ongoing remission. Brandon has now gone a little over 2 months without any Cyclosporine at all. This is double the length of time he went last time before relapse. We are very encouraged by this.
Praying for a lifetime of remission and no aplastic anemia. Please pray for our friend Deven Strief who is struggling with a recent relapse of aplastic. He needed a blood transfusion for the first time in three years. Join me in praying that things will turn around for him and the Cyclosporine that they've restarted will put him back in remission.

BTW, I almost missed that you tagged me! I've never been tagged before! Only problem being I don't really have a way to get a pic of me on here...will work on it! I know it's supposed to be candid but I pretty much look the same way all the time anyway...will see what I can do.
