No GOOD news!!

Good evening!! Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend so far and you get to spend time with the ones you love! I know I did! Mellissa, Mandy, and Josh came down here yesterday and left today once Marky and Renee got here. It was great spending time with everyone and they got to spend some good playtime with Dylan. I love my family and I am so blessed to be so close to them all!! Now, we are alone again.....:( but for a good reason. D needs to be around the least number of people as possible right now until after the transplant has had time to graft--which should be a few weeks after the transplant. Then his system should start making its own platelets and white blood cells. For now....we will be laying low...but thank you to everyone who wanted to come down for a visit....we will definitely take a raincheck!!

Dylan is doing very well with the chemo...and he has been getting a lot of it. So far, he has had no side effects, and is staying his happy self!! It's hard to believe that we are now killing off all of his bone marrow--all of the cells that create new cells....and then the good cells will be injected into him on Friday. Thank the Lord for doctors and medical science!!

That is all for now....more updates to ya!!


  1. I was totally thinking the same thing as I read this: thank goodness for medical science! If you lived in a different time period, a little guy like Dylan wouldn't have a chance! God is so good to orchestrate things the way he has--it is so obvious that this whole "thing" is part of a bigger devine plan. And I've already been able to share your story with so many non-believers--and they always ask me, "How does she cope?!" And it's such a huge gospel opportunity! You guys are being used without even knowing it!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. So I was looking back at these and yikes my husband looks like a homeless man! :) It is nice to look back and see how far D has come in such a short period of time.
