Emalia is doing very well although she has hit a couple of speed bumps on the chemo highway: she was turned away from chemo on Dec. 19th and again this morning because of a low blood count but hopes to be able to have her next round next week. She began Neupogen injections today to raise her blood count and will continue them for the next four days. She was also told that it's pretty amazing that she was able to get seven successive chemo rounds without a break. That's our Emalia!!!!!
Among things I'm most grateful for is that Emalia didn't catch anything except love last week from Kahalakea, who had pneumonia. Happily, he has recovered!
This Christmas is a time for so much gratitude, and we send all of you love and appreciation for your support. We wish you a wonderful New Year and hope that it brings healing and good health to all of us!
