To update you all, Laurissa is in the hospital sence nov. 16th she is having trouble keeping her blood counts up, platlets was down to # 2 when taken to the ER... They got them up to a 15 then they dropped to a 5.they said she was on the critical list when brought into the ER.. My daughter Lisa and I have been working and planing on a Benefit for Laurissa for months. We had it nov 19th. Laurissa was so upset that she thought she would miss it. the doctors gave her a medical pass to leave the hospital go to the benefit and come right back to the hospital. She was so happy she could do that for a few hours,but it took alot out of her, she is so weak and tired !!!We raised over $7000 for her...Her husband is still off work with his back surgery, still doing therapy, hopefully going back to work soon. Laurissa is going to have bonemarrow test done mon.21 or tues.22 to try to fined out why her counts won't stay up.I'm so scared and worried for her.I know things are in Gods hands and I'm praying so hard ,please pray for her, I know you all are ...thanks for keeping her in your prayers.I will try to keep you updated as I know you all care so much...I've been so busy working on the benefit or running Laurissa to chemo & labs and Drs.appointment I haven't had time to get on the board ,but I will let you know what the tests show.You all are in my prayers, to each and everyone have a Blessed and Wonderful Thanksgiving...I will tell Laurissa I posted, she talks about so many of her pink sisters that I feel you are family...Laurissa sister ,Kathy

Kathy, as you can tell from the posts on here, the pink sisters have all been worried and concerned for Laurissa, as we hadn't seen her post any update. I am so sorry to read that she has been in the hospital.

What a wonderful sister you are and what a wonderful daughter you have to sponsor a benefit for Laurissa. I know money was one of her concerns with her husband's surgery. $7000 is a lot of money! I want to personally say thank you to you and to Lisa for doing this!

I will be praying that with the bone marrow test, her doctor's can find out why her counts won't stay up. Please keep us updated as to her results Kathy.

Laurissa is so amazing and so courageous and we all love her! Please do let her know that we are all praying for her.

Thank you so much Kathy for posting today. Laurissa is family and loved by all.

Love, Sue

her some relief from extra worry. Every woman needs a sister
like you! Prayers will continue for her and her husband, of course
and I am sending her love and positive thoughts. Thank you again
Kathy. God bless you all.

Kathy thanks for an update on Laurissa...im not on here much now a days but when i am i always look for her posts to see how shes doing. I hate hearing that shes in the hospital. Tell her shes an inspiration to us all and we miss her.
Im happy to hear her hubby is getting better!
My sister did the same...going to all my surgeries, doc appointments ect, ect with me. I would have been lost without her. You will never know how much your appreciated...we may not be able to show it or tell you at the time but sisters like you are totally awesome and i believe you will get a special blessing out of it. It takes a special kind of person to stay devoted and go thru it with them like that!!!

Kathy thank you for the update. I think about her daily and pray. She is so loved on these boards and I will always consider her my chemo buddy, because we started chemo in 09 within a week of each other. Sending special hugs, prayers and love to my Kindred Pink sister, to you, her daughters, and the family.

We are indeed family~ and we have never been more than a thought and a prayer away from Laurissa and all of you going through this frightening time together. I am so heartbroken that her counts are low~ hopefully the tests will not only show why, but that a solution will be right there and she can respond to the treatment and regain strength. Tired as she was, I know she must have been thrilled to be at the benefit~ and what a grand total!! Congratulations!Laurissa is so loved and special to so many of us; I can see why the outpouring of love was so evident.

Blessings to you for keeping us in the loop~ I can only begin to imagine how difficult this is for you, and we so appreciate that you took the time to let us know. We send you love and courage too...and I know you will give your darling sister hugs and kisses from her family of Kindred Spirits here at CSN. We love her sooo much! (((((((hugs)))))))

Hugs,
Chen♥

Kathy, Laurissa is a part of the family here on CSN and all of us have been worrying so much about how she was doing. We pink sisters stick together! It saddens me to know that she is in the hospital now and having more problems. I hope that the doctors can find why her markers are low and staying that way.

The benefit you and your daughter held for her was such a sweet, kind and generous gift. And the fact that Laurissa was able to attend is wonderful. I know how much that meant to her.

Laurissa is blessed to have you Kathy and your daughter. I remember how you would post on here when Laurissa was having a rough time long ago to support her.

I will light a candle for Laurissa and continue praying.

Please post any update when you can and the pink sisters will keep praying.

Hugs,

Diane

Kathy, thank you for the update on Laurissa. We have all been very concerned about her. I am so sorry to read that she is in the hospital. I hope the reasons are discovered soon and she is on another treatment or whatever it takes to get her strength back and get her back home. You are a very special angel in her life. I know all about it because I have a sister just like you. We are so lucky!

Please give Laurissa a gentle (((hug))) from me and let her know we are sending her strength and love. Take care of yourself, too.

I hope the number of well wishes and prayers on here give Laurissa some comfort and helps her to know how many people are pulling for her.

I am fairly new to the boards, but she is someone who reached out to me right away, so I too, always look for updates on her.

Thank you for being so wonderful to her and keeping us all informed.
