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.

Induction is FINISHED. :):)

Gabey made it through his 29 days! We're so proud of him!
Today, we brought him in, and he had to get another bone marrow test, and another lumbar puncture with chemo. We had to wait for a very long time. It was a rough time for Gabey because he was really hungry. They didn't get him in til after 1pm. We were really hungry too, as we weren't about to eat and drink in front of him. :(
The test went just fine, and we'll know the results of that soon.

His blood counts are way up, even high, because of the decadron, I think that's what the Dr. said. It really helped to build his counts. He is at 11,090 for ANC, which is a little high, and his WBC white blood count is 20,160. We're so thankful, the Dr. said, he can just be normal now, and play with the other kids and stuff. I asked how quickly counts can go down, but she said we didn't have to worry about it this week, and that next week, he wasn't having chemo that would take down the counts. WOOHOOO. He's going to Sunday School on Sunday!

We took him straight to Target, and bought him some special presents for being such a trooper this month.

Pray, Pray Pray, that the next set of treatments do not include the PEG shots. There are 2 different paths he could be on, and one has extra shots, and one doesn't. Pray that he won't have to do the extra.
