Yesterday Mikayla began her 3rd round of chemo. We of course haven't spoken to her doctor yet, but we have spoken with his RN. Mikayla gets ARA-c for 24 hours a day for 7 days as well as 2 of the for wonder drugs spoken about in earlier posts. I am terrible with names so I will update later about their names and more information about what the risks of the drugs are. She is doing well so far with the medicine. If she doesn't achieve remission then we will undergo one last round of chemo before we end up in bone marrow transplant. If remission is achieved then we will go to BMT right after we finish.


  1. Mikayla and family,
    You may not remember us, we lived in Greystone for nearly 3 years--next door to Nick and Valeri Hall--at 124 Jared. We heard about Mikayla from Valeri shortly after she was diagnosed. We have been praying for her every day since! (And we are praying for your family as well!) May God continue to hold you in his hand and provide you with His peace.

  2. Mikayla and family,

    We are praying this round works. Tell Mikayla that Isaiah says hi and you guys have been in our thoughts and prayers.
