Day +21

I plead for fervent prayers this week. It's been 4 weeks since he received his new bone marrow. As of today, his new bone marrow is not producing any cells according to the lab results. The doctors said by Day +25 we should see good lab results. They are not concerned. If his lab results do not show good numbers by Day +28 (next Tuesday) he will need a bone marrow aspirate, which requires anesthesia and is painful. They said David is doing great. He is still eating and active, which is a huge blessing. He has had a runny nose for 1-1/2 weeks and no immune system to fight it. For two days he's run a borderline fever for a few hours, but has never had a temp higher than 100 degrees, which is another blessing. I am taking one day at a time. Today he is doing great and I praise God for that. Please fervently pray this week for God to intervene and cause his cells to start growing, growing, growing.

Thank you so much!
