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.

It's Been a Gift

Gabey's hair has been a gift through this whole treatment. He kept it the whole time, until now. We're buzzing his hair tonight, because he's shedding it really badly now. The back has bald spots. I'm sad, but I'm also thankful that it held on longer than usual.

His appointment was easy peasy today, just counts. His counts are still good, because of the decadron.

Pray hard for the next 3 weeks. This week will be an easy rest period, and if his counts are still good, he'll be able to go on in his treatment.

Next Thursday will be really rough, with 3 new chemos. The shots at home will have to strart next week. It's been a part that I've dreaded ever since I learned about them. BUT, praise our Lord, we see the end in sight!
