I'm out of my funk

I was talking to Duke today regarding scheduling the IgG level draw and we are going to try to get it done while he is at Children's on the 15th for surgery to avoid multiple sticks. While sending emails back and forth I inquired about the rest of Caleb's labs as I knew Dr. Markert, took the report with her over the weekend to review.

She sent me the following in an email:
'Dear Sarah,

Flow (T cell numbers) and proliferation (T cell function) both looked great. The report states that the T cells and naive T cells are stable but in fact the naive T cell numbers continue to increase. It is a beautiful essay. Caleb was better than the controls on some of the functional assays.


I actually had to read it over and over again. To believe what I was reading. Caleb is better than the control on some numbers?!? Which ones, I don't know, but some he is better than the control. I am a mess. I have to say I have been in one heck of a funk the past few days and this is exactly what I needed to get my out of it. `Hallelujah! Oh wow! WOW WOW WOW! I am praying his IgG level will look 'just as beautiful' !

On a side note: she does want us to get him vaccinated to H1N1 so now I have to find out about the special process to get him a vaccine in time!

Special prayers for my mom tomorrow as she has a knee replacement done and for our little friend Eva, see the link to her page at right, as she just had hip surgery today.

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb!!
