Thank You for Your Prayers!

     After my post on Thursday, we certainly felt all of your support and prayers, and boy did they work! That night our little Hazelnut was peeing like a madwoman! Friday morning, the doctors still thought we may have to stay an extra day, but by 5:00pm when they tested her lab work, her creatinine levels went WAY down and they said we could go home!!!!! Her kidneys definitely took a hit and we will be back on Thursday to have. GFR (kidney function test) done to help the doctors determine how we should move forward on the protocol.  We finally arrived home close to 8:00 pm last night, and both Hazel and I are extremely exhausted from the grueling week, but we are so thankful.  As of today, our little Hazelnut is still quite unwell and will continue to need your prayers.  It is such a good thing that we get three weeks between this treatment and the next, because she will need every one of those days to recuperate.

  19. When Hazel is 16, or 20, and reads this post, she is going to be rolling her eyes and "Oh, Mom"-ing at the 'peeing like a madwoman!' phrase.
