You've Made a Difference

I truly believe that.  And I am so grateful.  Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, and the positive energy that you directed towards Maya's godfather and our dear friend.  When I reached out, we were all in the midst of tears and fears, having been told to expect the worst and that an experimental trial was the only hope left.  All that remained was a bone marrow biopsy to make sure that he was eligible (and that the cancer cells werent still through the roof and too high for treatment).

I don't even know what to say.  From that place of fear and despair, there was always the candle burning with that little flame of hope, and since I can't even write the words through my tears, I'll let the words of Bobby's godmother do it instead.

"E came home last night. He is very stable and doing so well that they saw no need to keep him in the hospital.....also the bone marrow biopsy came back showing that the leukemia is in a remission for now.  The doctors can see that he is in remission, but aren't sure what is causing the effect. They think that the steroids he took to lower the high cell count are possibly holding the leukemia at bay for now, but are not sure for how long.  We are asking God for a miracle and are grateful beyond words for this time. Please pray with us that the donor cells will now have the chance to develop and fight for E.
All glory to God,

E isn't out of the woods yet and the road is still a long one, but for now it is one where the cancer is being beaten down.  Please continue to pray for him, to think of him, to hold him near your hearts, and to focus your positive and healthy energy his way.  His family are grateful, and so are all of us who love him and want to see him well again.

But thank you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.
