The Church Is True



Jenny had good news and bad news for me today, and I have to say that I am super excited to say that the Oncologist came in today and told her that the LEUKEMIA IS GONE! Awesome right, Jenny says that she thinks that just means all her blood cells are gone, but its a huge victory. This means that she will continue her chemo cycle (halfway done) and then they will do a bone marrow biopsy at the end of the month to check for remission. The chromogenetics test came back totally fine, and it also means no bone marrow transfusions. So a banner day in Jenny Reeder Land. The bad news is that Jenny has no white blood cells (the doctor said she might have 2 of them swimming around in there). She has three infections one in her colon and two in her blood, so they are pumping her with antibiotics. She is worried that they might remove her PICC line, and she really doesn't want that to happen so lets all pray that she can keep it in. She is really tired and couldn't find the energy to pick up a book today, so we know that means she is crazy tired. She was in great spirits and was buoyed up by the good news (i think we all are). Lets remember that this fight is not over and we must continue to pray for her and visit her. We love you Jenny and love the new do' you look fabulous and I think you totally rock the pixie!

Love the 'do! Way better than those folks at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. Hooray for the good news! We'll keep praying for more good news and for white blood cells. Love you!

Hi Jenny! As everyone has said, the haircut is fabulous!! But, you will lose it all in the next few weeks? I guess the good news is that when it comes back in, we all know you look awesome with super short hair. :)

I'm SUPER glad to hear that the cancer is gone, though I'm worried about those infections and the bone marrow biopsy. Very good news that you don't have to have a bone marrow transplant, though. Phew. Big hugs to you, and I will also keep praying for more white blood cells, beating the infections, and total remission.

The haircut looks FABULOUS!!! It's a very trendy cut right now too. Halle Berry, Emma Watson, Annette Benning, Jenny Reeder. You look mahvelous!

SO relieved and excited about the good news. Hope you get your energy (and white blood cells) back soon.

Agreed--Your new do' looks GREAT! I'm so glad/relieved to hear that all the "bad" is gone from your body. Sorry to hear that the infections are coming in full force, though. We will all continue praying for you to feel better and get well.
