Gabey D. is our wonderful firstborn son. He was diagnosed with A.L.L (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) in May 2007, and has been going through a 3 1/2 year chemo treatment. We are trusting God, and believe He will show Himself Mighty.

Can't Praise the Lord LOUD ENOUGH!!

I am so excited to be able to share this miracle news!!
Our beautiful nurse called today, and shared the results from the bone marrow test from Thursday, and......

It was less thannnnnn.......

1%

That means that the chemo has already kicked out almost ALL the leukemia blasts!!!!!
This is so much more than just good news! This is the best answer to our prayer that God could have given us. What an unspeakable gift! God is so GOOD!!

Now, Gabey doesn't have to get the test done again this thursday, and if things keep up this way, he'll be termed as a RER a rapid early responder!!

What an awesome God we serve. He is there in the bad and in the good. It is such a comfort to know that He answers prayers and cares for us. I am so very happy and relieved. Even though there will still be a long road, God has been good enough to begin to heal our sweet Gabey. I am proud of you and Jeff and the good testimony you have been. It has been a hard journey but you have remained faithful to our wonderful God. Stay close to Him and keep singing His praises. I love you all.
