Hi Everyone,
I just got off the phone from talking to Harriet - Bentleysmom. She is being released today from the hospital and is currently in remission. She is not out of the woods yet. She is coming home to rest up for the biggest battle yet to come.
The doctor told her this week she has the worst kind of leukemia. They are not sure what the plan of action will be, either bone marrow transplant, stem cell and /or more rounds of Chemo. They maysend her to another hospital where they are more qualified to treat this type of cancer.
They told her with thepurposed treatment she has at least a 30% chance of making it. Her words, "With the Lords help, that is a 100% chance inmy book". She is ready to do battle but feelseverything isin the Lords hands.
She is really excited to come home and see her doggies. She has missed them so much. Again she thanked you all for the cards, thoughts, and prayers. Please continue to pray for her recovery, strength to fight,and for the medical team that is working on her behalf.
If you are a believer, I am asking that you pray continuously and to please pass her name onto your prayer groups. Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 18:19"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven." If it is God's will Harriet will be cured.

Great to hear you'reback home and many thanks for the update! Keep in mind that, while the current prognosis may not be the best one would hope for, they're all just an educated, statisticalguess. In my circumstances, my first medical oncologist said that, with my two, unrelatedStage IV cancers (Colon/Tonsilar), I had "...6-months, a year if you're lucky..." prognosis. That was in May, 2001...

Keep the faith and your strength up!

In the late spring of 1967, my parents were told, that at best , my odds were 50/50 in surving my cancer.
