The Labs Are Back

Braden's nurse just called and gave me his blood work results from this morning's appointment. His bilirubin is down to 4.4 (Wonderful!) and his hemoglobin is up to 14.7!!!! Last Wednesday it was a terrifying 6.1, Thursday it was up to 9.9 after the transfusion, and now it is within normal range. Please join us in prayer as we thank the Great Physician for healing our son, Braden. We are almost 100% sure this horrific ordeal is over. Praise be to God!

I am SO happy to hear he is doing well! Alex had a scary lab when we first brought him home and we had to get him to the hematologist ASAP. The ped thought it could have been lukemia (which a good friend died of a few years earlier), but it was just anemia, and not as severe as your son. Both of my kids had that but are fine now. I am so happy to hear you all are through the woods and that all the kids are well. Now if you could just get more sleep!
