Today our little Hazelnut is checking in at 6:00 AM to have her bone marrow biopsy done. This is the almost the last of her disease evaluation tests. Her CT scan was done last week and her MIBG scan was done yesterday. She still needs her blood and urine tested and we will go over all of the results on Tuesday with her oncologist. However, if there is any sign of disease growth or progression, I will receive a phone call to come in to reevaluate her treatment plan. So naturally Aaron and I are absolute nervous wrecks, and each time the phone rings from Children's Hospital, my heart leaps out of my chest. We ask you now to join us in prayer over these next few days for healing and NED (No Evidence of Disease) results. We know our God has been doing a mighty work within our daughter and have faith that, if He so chooses, He will bless her with complete healing. We hope He may give us the longing of our hearts, but also ask that if Hazel will continue to fight against the beast we have come to know as Neuroblastoma, that we will trust and rely on Him and hold fast to His promises that He can, has and will carry us through the most brutal of storms.
