a time to heal….
In the spring of this year Hanni began to have more and more signs that something was wrong but, she hoped it was just stress, nothing a little clean eating and exercise wouldn’t cure but, hard as she tried and hoped, things just didn’t turn around. A trip to the ER at the insistence of her brother Evan may have saved things from getting much worse. After a battery of tests and medical visits Hanni was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Her treatment is being supervised by the team at UCSD Moore’s Cancer Center. In short, this means her bones have stopped making marrow, so her body cannot produce blood cells thus requiring blood transfusions every few weeks. She must have a bone marrow transplant soon, and until a donor becomes available the blood transfusions are needed to sustain her life.

I cannot thank each of you enough, both for your prayers and your gifts. This allows me to care for my sweet daughter. My sister and her husband have come alongside to allow me much needed days off. Hanni has a new challenge: she has developed gout, and it is so bad she can barely walk. The doctors have tried several things, but with no results. Unfortunately, they can’t give her the standard gout medication because of her transplant. Rock and a hard place. Please pray for God’s solution for this very painful ailment. Thank you.

Hanni had a successful transplant Friday, Oct. 11. She will remain in the hospital now until her white blood count reaches an acceptable level, then she will go to her Aunt Carol and Uncle Bill’s house in Fallbrook, and will stay there until her new bone marrow doesn’t fight with her body any longer. This will take several months. Visitors and cards are welcome both at her aunt’s house or the hospital. Please call for directions before you come. Thank you sooo much for caring, praying, and giving.

Just heard about this today, Hannalee. Praying the transplant will continue to "take" and that you have a speedy recovery.
