Dear Friends and Family,
There is no doubt in our minds that prayer is very powerful. Kerstin is getting to go home about one week earlier than originally expected! Her counts came up fast enough, and she has been without a fever long enough that the doctors feel she has recovered enough to get rid of “the anchor”. She is not without limits though. The doctors have placed criteria on where she can go, who she can be around, etc… It all kind of depends on her counts. (The counts if you’re wondering are her Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC). There’s some math involved. ☺)
We are looking forward to getting her back home and letting life return to some sort of normalcy (whatever our new normalcy will be). Cards, letters, emails and telephone calls are welcome, but we will not be having too many visitors for awhile. We are sure you all can understand.
Once again we give thanks to God and to all of you for your prayers and support.
Jeff and Annie Leaf
