Today is Day 29 of Natalie's treatment and the Orlando's stay at Stanford. It is hard to believe it has been a month now.

**Dom texted me and told me Natalie is having a surgical procedure today. He also indicated they expect to go home tonight!

Nothing yet on tests.


Update: 8:35pm

The Orlandos are home! They went home tonight for the first time in a month.

Natalie had a port placed today surgically so she can receive mediation directly. It resides under her skin and is sealed so she can take baths or swim. They have a follow up appointment this coming Friday, but for now things are as good as could be expected.

The results of the tests for her Leukemia cell levels will not come back for a week, so we will keep you posted as to the progress.

Dom's voice on the phone sounded alive and lifted.

They are so thankful for everyone's prayers and encouragement and financial gifts.

This is a great milestone to go home!

Just letting you know I've included Natalie's name in our church prayer vigil, which takes place Fri.-Sat. of this week.

Audrey asks about her every time we go to Teacher Eva's class.

Hi guys,
I just wanted to let you know that we're praying for Natalie and the rest of your little family. I check the blog daily and am anxiously waiting the news from "day 29".

God Bless,
Ryan & Renee Ollenburger

We are so happy to hear you may be taking Natalie home! It will be soooo nice to be able to sleep in your own beds! Yeah! We are continually praying for God's grace and healing! God bless your beautiful family!

Hooray...come home to us! We continue to pray for you throughout each day.

I know that my mom over there already spoke for all of us, but I just have to give a big shout out here "YAY! The D's and N's are finally home!".

Thank you Jesus! We're so glad to hear that you are home!
