Once again, I am so sorry it has taken me so long to update Katlyn's progress. I have been very busy with Katlyn outside because the weather has been so absolutley beautiful. We are loving every minute of it. We still have not heard anything back about Katlyn's skin. I do know they had a few places they needed to send the samples, so that would take time. She has an appointment at the IWK on the 26th, so hopefully we'll know something by then.
All of her biopsy sites have healed very well and no infection has occured. The last time I wrote I talked about the unfortunate event of a medicine making Katlyn's numbers drop. Well, we believe that she is past that now. Her latest neautrophils reading was 1400 and her lymphocytes finally broke 300. We are so excited about this new number and hope to see it even higher at Katlyn's next appointment. This trip we will be spending about a week in Moncton with my mother and we are so excited. Sadly, Canada Day marks the anniversary of when my brother passed away, but I believe we all need to be together to make this year as easy as possible...especially for my mother.
Lastly I would like to mention that fairly recently we put our names in for a new home with Habitat for Humanity and last night we found out they had selected us. So pretty soon the new construction on our new home will start. It seems totally unbelievable. I really didn't think they were coming to tell us that last night. I had no idea. What an amazing surprise. So someday soon, Katlyn will be living in the cleanest safest possible home for her. I am just thrilled. Thank you so much Habitat for Humanity for all the work that you do, and for choosing to help us.
