Good News!

Kerstin had her bone marrow biopsy today and the preliminary results came back "a-ok". The doctors are sending some samples to another lab for some other studies and tests. Those results should be back in 1-2 weeks. If those results come back "a-ok", she will be able to stop taking all of her current meds.

Kerstin got the royal treatment from the staff at Children's Hospital. Here's a picture of her getting a wagon ride up to the clinic after her procedure.

We hope this post finds everyone doing well. We continue to pray for all of those who are still fighting these horrible diseases, and for the families whose fight is over.

Yea!!! It's great to read your good news, Kerstin!! Love the picture of you in the wagon. You really know how to travel. I will keep checking to see what the final results were. Won't it be great when you can be DONE with meds?! We are excited for you. You go, girl. Hi to your family!

Yea, Kerstin! We are so happy for you. Kenna thinks it's really cool you got a wagon ride back from your test, and Casey wonders what you'll use your tackle box for when you're all done with the meds. :)

We love you so much and are so grateful for your good news!!!
