Some Sunny News for June!

Hi gang,

I just learned that Sarah's labs were so great that she won't need any labs or any clinic visits for an ENTIRE MONTH. I know this may not seem like a huge deal to some people but bear in mind for the vast majority of Sarah's post-transplant life, we have had to visit Children's weekly for blood work and twice a month for clinics. Dr. Horslin wants to keep her on the prednisone for two more weeks and then slowly wean her off of it the following two weeks leading up to the clinic visit next month.

Sarah is also becoming a little chunk. She weighs about 30 pounds but motors around so much that even with the prednisone increasing her appetite she didn't put on any weight between visits.

Praise God for His faithfulness and this much needed respite. It will really seem like a VACATION. We definitely will need to celebrate. I'm thinking maybe a visit to the Olympic Coast is in order. We just need to continue praying there are no hiccups once she is weaned off the prednisone.
