Thank You for Being With Us This Week.

A big round of applause to all those who bravely commented for the roll call! It's so nice to hear from you, the prayer warriors in the field. I have a hunch, though, that we have more than 15 people who check in regularly. ;)

*A footnote to yesterday's post: Some of you asked about Kyrie going to the mall. Don't panic. The quick trip was sanctioned by her doctor as a way to boost Kyrie's morale. He told Lacie & Jordan that she doesn't have to live in a bubble. Do something she knows as normal. Don't go during a peak shopper time. Don't stay very long. Don't touch much. Go while her counts are high. Stay away from crowds. And you know ... that day started her string of better days. Guess retail therapy really does work!

Speaking of her counts, as of yesterday, we've hit a new low. Kyrie's white blood cell count on Friday was 40,000. The results from her blood work on Monday say that it's now .5. She's still feeling okay, but for the next few days to a week, no visitors. Jordan and Lacie are still giving Kyrie the Neupogen injections to stimulate the production of white blood cells. She received her vincristine chemo yesterday at her oncologist's office. Only threw up once last night and slept for nearly five hours straight. Very good for our little trooper. And ... last night was the first night that she wanted to sleep in her room. Excellent! So that's where she and Mommy slept with her books, her toys, her dog and her 'toons.

You can add St Thomas Aquinas to your prayer list. My thoughts and prayers are with this special family.

Hi! Kyrie, Lacie, & Jordan;
Just a note to tell you are in our prayers every day. We check the web site daily. We love the pictures and comments, so I guess we should let you know we are here for you every day. Kenzie, Asa, & Scott are checking at the site every day also. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
Love,
Great Aunt Ann & Great Uncle Gary

Jordan, Lacie, and Kyrie
Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of your family often. My mom sent me an email that she got about Kyrie and now I check the site every day to see if there are any updates on her. My daughter, Alexa, is now 20 months old and I could not even imagine how hard this is on the both of you. I will continue to pray for Kyrie and your family. Please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do for you.
Love,
Erin (Thome) Shaw

Just a note to say Hi! We think of you all often. I know God is doing something BIG in all of you!
Remember, if He allowed it, He'll do something with it! God is in control of all things! We love you and thank God for Kyrie's healing! Boone & Debbie

Dear Lacie and Jordan,
I have been meaning to let you know that Kyrie has been on our prayer chain at Bentley United Methodist Church and also the Zao Christian Fellowship Church. I check in every day on Kyrie's progress and keep everyone informed in the churches. Just because I havn't called you guys much doesn't mean you're not in our thoughts and prayers. We are praying every day for All OF YOUR FAMILY.

We Love You Guys,
Asa, Scott & Kenzie

P.S. Kenzie still has her 4 wheeler just waiting for Kyrie to learn to ride it.
