Halloween has long since come and gone. Dracula partied on my blood samples (just kidding of course), and Thanksgiving is just around the bend, in a matter of days. I have so much to be thankful for this year. Since Oct 15, I have been diagnosed with the rarest of rare forms of leukemia and transferred to KU Hospital Cancer unit, then to the cardiac unit and back home to the cancer unit. I have been so ill I could barely hold my head up and I have been so exhausted I couldn't get on my computer to tell any of my family or friends how I am doing. But through all of this I am grateful that I remain loved by so many and God has given me day after day of continued life. Your prayers are working. My blood counts are continuously rising which the doctors say are a marvelous thing. God is working overtime to take care of my blood replacement and who would not rejoice in this. I started a list of blessings yesterday and believe me, my Sparkling Sapphires are on that list. Your cards, goodies, and emails as well as comments on my page have not gone unnoticed nor unappreciated. What a loving team. Thank you for your continued prayers on my behalf. I am so richly blessed. HUGS to my team; I love you all right back.
