Kristen is doing well tonight. She seems to be slowing down a bit, I suspect the leukemia is catching up to her. Kristen needs platelets before she can have the surgery. In the morning we will first go to the oncology clinic for labs and platelets and then to surgery to have the central line placed. After recovery she will be admitted to the floor. I suspect that chemo will begin shortly thereafter.
I have been amazed by the outpouring of kind words and prayers that have been offered in her behalf. Thank You! Many have asked what they can do to help Kristen. Kristen LOVES to get mail. I thought it would be a great idea for anyone that would like to cheer her up to send her a card or a note.
