The Latest on Anna

Anna's new meds are still not in. Tonight she took her last "left over" Gleevec pill (from when she switched over to the Tasigna). Dr. Irwin really didn't want her to have to take the Gleevec anymore, but it looks like she'll be on it until the other meds are approved. I must pick up a month's supply tomorrow.  I just love it when health insurance companies get to decide what's best for your child rather than just trusting your child's doctor! I am thankful for a husband who knows how to handle it! And I'm thankful that God is in control!

Because we have to go in tomorrow to pick up the Gleevec, Dr. I said we could just wait and see him next week. They let us get her labs done at our local physician's office. Since her eyes have been a bit yellow, they are testing her bilirubin as well as her liver enzymes. We should hear back from those tests in a couple of days.

I am thankful for God's grace that is sustaining our sweet Anna in this time of pain. I am thankful for family and friends as well as complete strangers that are lifting up prayers on her behalf!


  1. I'm doing my best to spread the word for more prayers. Love you Ms.Emily and Anna and other kids.

  2. We were all saddened to hear that Anna hasn't been able to switch to the new medication yet. We will continue to pray for Anna's health, and the strength of your family. We pray that you will be able to rest in the peace of Christ that surpasses all understanding as you undergo this fiery trial to reveal your faith to be as purest gold.

    Many Blessings,
    The 6 T's
