"The tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance." (1 Nephi 1:20)

We made it through the weekend!!!  Hayley did blood work yesterday and today our sweet Israeli Doctor said that he was encouraged with the blood results.  He said the kidneys were functioning exactly the same as they were the last 2 days in the hospital.  I was thinking to myself "Is that good?"  But he was pleased that the kidneys had not gone down hill further. (they had dropped every day the first week in the hospital).  Since the chemo treatment they have not gotten worse.  So Yay!!!

Hayley will go back into the hospital tomorrow and do another round of chemo.  She has not had any negative side effects and her white blood count is still very good.  It is because of the prayers and because of the medicine Hayley felt impressed to choose.

We feel your prayers and are so very grateful!!!  We will know more about need for transplant and dialysis in the next 2 weeks depending on how much the medicine brings her along.

Hayley is trying to do all she can to be healthy by eating well and keeping the spirit with her.  Eating has been very difficult on a low sodium and low potassium diet.  Everything healthy is high in potassium.  But we are getting creative!
