Happy New Year!!!

We want to wish everyone have awesome New year!!
We praying that 2011 will be better with no hospital stay, less labs and have better year we ever had!!

Here is some update from our last check up we had early this week:
Anna's labs are doing well, they did found out that her platelets are deformed, they would like to repeat that test to confirm that results are correct. When platelets are deformed they can't clot properly and it makes any small cuts to bleed. If that will confirmed, then we will have to follow with oncologist. We also still waiting to see neurologist.
So beginning of the year it will be a little busy, then i hope we will be done with doctors ;-)

Here few favorite pictures from Christmas

This will be our first visit official with him, he did met us before several time wile Anna was admitted and he want to order some testing, in order to get them done Anna had to be off her treatments. Now that she is off the treatments it is better time to get some testing running.

Anna is been doing well, some time she has some sign that shows, that she will get relapse, but by that evening everything goes away. She still struggling to keep her iron up, as soon as it goes up it drops back down. There are some other concerns we have, but i don't have permission from Anna to share until we know for sure what is going on.

It was a BIG surprise for my mom we never told her that we coming to visit her and will be there for her celebration, the most fun part was every one in Russia knew i will be there and made effort to make it for the celebration.

I didn't see my mom for 5 years and it is been too long, i promised to her i have to see her every year if i can and not every 5.

Anna is been doing well and back to gymnastics. She is very excited to see her friends and getting ready for competitions, they will be starting in October.
