Manda's Sick - OMG WTF?

Are you sitting down? Amanda might get to come home on Friday!

The results of the 3rd biopsy are still inconclusive, but her numbers are coming up to where the average patient would be sent home if in remission. So they're going to schedule another biopsy for Friday (#4!) and, if her numbers are where they need to be, she'll probably get sent home.

The respite may be brief, as negative biopsy results would mean she'd go right back in for more chemo, but the prospect of having Amanda home, sleeping in her own bed, having breakfast and playing with Alastair, is more than I can wrap my mind around right now.

I'm trying not to get too excited, though: the doctors have yet to render a final word.

Cross your fingers, and keep up the prayers and love!

Such good news! It's always nice to be in your own home. We'll keep praying.
