.....and it begins

Tonight was the start of many nights with fevers. Tonight's fever came in at a whopping 103 degrees--his highest yet. They took a urine sample and also another blood culture. Please continue to pray that he does not get any infections and pray for Erik and I to not freak out whenever he gets the fevers. This whole up and down roller coaster is not so fun! Please pray that God continues to give us a peace that passes all understanding. On a good note, we got some great news back on his bone marrow sample that they took!! It came back showing that he is in remission!! (remember that it is only called remission, but there is still an undectable amount of leukemia in the marrow) This is great news and shows that his body is responding well to the chemo and it is killing the cells that it needs to. We are praying that the doctors will decide that this will be his last round of chemo. It will depend on how his body responds to this round and what the transplant doctor thinks we should do. We would love to start the transplant as soon as possible and we are praying that we get our little boy and family home for Christmas!! That would be the most wonderful Christmas present of all time!! (and birthday present for me because my birthday is on Christmas!) Thank you for all of your prayers!

Love Michelle


  1. I'm so glad he is responding to the chemo. What a great Christmas gift it would be indeed. Keeping the prayers going:)

  2. I got to bring Madi home the second time on Christmas Eve and it doesn't get any better than that! We pray for you guys all the time and will continue to do so. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for any of you!
