I am still waiting for more exact updates on Maren. However, I did find out that the doctors discovered Maren has a very rare genetic recessive gene disorder. This is causing a lot of the problems with her cancer and chemo treatments. She is very sick and is not doing very well right now. So, please-please pray for Maren and her family! Update: Thanks to google, a resident for a daddy (Dr. J), and a tireless fellow (Dr. R) it was determined that Maren almost certainly does not have a genetic disorder, but is experiencing a side-effect of the 6MP that causes low blood sugar. We can't know for sure until she is done with chemo next summer, but as her mommy, I'm pretty certain - based on the timing of the meds given and the timing of the low blood sugar episodes.
