I could not have ask for more, PRAISE GOD!!



Listen to me SCREAM!!!!! JACOB IS IN REMISSION!! NO CANCER CELLS FOUND!! Goal: to keep him in remission till we find a bone marrow match and on to transplant. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE'S CONTINUED PRAYERS! THANK YOU GOD!! THE POWER OF PRAYER!!!

We had clinic this morn and then we check into the hospital on Sunday night for our next round of chemo. We are doing the same chemo we had 6 wks ago that also kept us there for 1 month, so we will see what will happen. Last Monday (6/22/09) I also had another appt. with one of the Dr's for Jacobs Bone Marrow transplant, he just covered things we need to know and told me as soon as we find a donor match, our goal is to move farward.

Jacob lost his front tooth in the OR when he went in for his spinal and Bone Marrow asparation or I should say they took it out, so when I went to wait for him to wake up I saw Doggie all gowned up with the tooth. So with the other one just about to come out he likes to make goofy faces :O)

For every one that has been asking how they can see about donating and seeing if they are a match for bone marrow:
Help save a life it might even be my little Jacob that you are helping. If you are not already registered, you can join, I am not sure if there is a cost at this point.

"I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I
will sing praises to You. I will worship toward Your holy
temple, and praise Your name for Your loving kindness and
Your truth; for You have magnified Your word above all
Your name. In the day when I cried out, You answered
me, and made me bold with strength in my soul"

Thank You for keeping our precious little Jacob in your prayers,
Melisa

From where do I begin??



It has been a while since I have posted, I really don't know where to start. After his second relapse on Easter and the chemo, followed the bone marrow biopsy about 4 to 5 wks later only to find out the Leukemia was still there. We slowed it down maybe even killed a lot of it, but it was still there. So we moved forward to a new set of drugs which took place at another hospital. 5 days, each morning was three chemos 2 hours each. He did pretty well the first day was the hardest, He felt really sick,but as days went on he did alot better with not getting as sick. We headed right back to our own hospital on the last day of the chemo. With that round behind us and his WBC at 0 all we could do is wait for his marrow to start to recover on its own. So 4 wks later and WBC at 1.8 It was time for the next Bone Marrow Biopsy which was done on 6/16/09 to find out if took care of the Leukemia this time. Well the Dr said there was a few abnormal cells, so it was sent off for testing so we can find out what is really going on. So we have clinic this friday 6/19/09 to get the test results and to see what and when the next treatment is.
THANK YOU FOR THE CONTINUED PRAYERS
