The doctors in Philadelphia have decided to extend the testing window to 10 days and so we will know on Thursday (hopefully), how Phoebe's cells have grown.
The initial results show that they seem to be a bit slow to start off but slow and steady often wins the race, and so we will wait, and we will hope.
The cell number needs to be at 4 to qualify and right now Phoebe has 1.3.
Phoebe and I share the same t-cells as her last transplant was with my stem cells and I know that in many aspects of life, I am slow and steady. She however, is feisty, energetic and full of spunk, so between the two of us those cells will grow.
I believe they will. I have to because I honestly don't know where we go from here.
Please pray for strong cells.
This is a photo of Phoebe, stringing her necklace of courage beads. This necklace, that we have been making throughout Phoebe's journey, has a bead to commemorate and acknowledge each step. It is almost fifty feet long.
