Counts are down

We had a rough night last night and this morning Esther's counts had dropped again to 3.8. She hasn't had a fever, so that is good. With our late night the night before and then being up a lot last night, I have to think that stress and fatigue are not helping her body recover. They woke her about 6:45 for vitals and she was still upset from the night, but fell back asleep and is still sleeping now.

They have to be well over 100 and climbing quickly for her to be discharged. A friend sent me this text this morning about her counts needing to rise so much, "that's a huge increase. Will pray for that! A clear way for God to display his might!"

I really needed that encouragement and it's true. That is a clear way for God to display his might and what I'll be praying today. That HE would glorified in Esther's body today.


  1. "fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 Be not dismayed, for God is, El Shaddai (GOD ALMIGHTY), Yahweh Rophey (LORD HEALER), EL OSEH PHELA (GOD WHO WORKS WONDERS)...and so much more.

  2. Praying for rising counts and resting in the knowledge of Him.

  3. In you, O LORD, do I take refuge;
    let me never be put to shame;
    in your righteousness deliver me!
    Incline your ear to me;
    rescue me speedily!
    Be a rock of refuge for me,
    a strong fortress to save me!
    For you are my rock and my fortress;
    and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me;
    you take me out of the net they have hidden for me,
    for you are my refuge.
    Into your hand I commit my spirit;
    you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.
    Psalm 31:1-5

    Praying for rescue from this blood count drop for Esther today. Love to you all.
