Quick Katie update

Well, Katie is in the process of weaning off the steroids. The tests showed that only about 1/2 of her 6-mp (immunosuppressant chemo drug) was being absorbed. So we have increased the dose and will test levels again in a couple of weeks. She has 'rounded' out nicely while on the steroids and is full of gumption. In other words, the only time we see her chubby and grumpy is on steroids. It's a little amusing to us all.

We are praying as the steroids are removed from her system that her body will go in remission and not flare up again. She will be finished the first week of August. She is tired of all the blood tests and pokes but she is a trooper and doesn't complain.

We appreciate all the prayers. Katie continues to turn to her Father the Healer and seeks wisdom and strength from Him faithfully. As hard as this is on her, she has had great stretching and growth in her spiritual walk.
