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.

Gabey's Doing Great!!

God has just brought Gabey through this last treatment so beautifully!! He's gotten sick only once, and the Zofran has kept him feeling fine. He's energetic, and happy. You can't even tell he's on these chemos. The doctors warned that most children get really bad side effects from these chemos that he's taking right now. They said that most children just want to lay in bed, and they feel so junky that even touching them hurts. God has just kept all that away for my little miracle.
We have only 3 more days on this treatment, and we have a rest. After that, when his counts are high enough we'll start on "Maintenance". This will be for the long haul of 3 years. He'll get an appointment every month, in that appt, every month, he'll get VCR in his tubey, and then every three months, he'll get an LP also. He'll be taking a few oral chemos the entire time also. It will be quite a break though, from the weekly appointments we're doing now. Prayerfully, his counts will do much better, and we'll be able to start him back in Sunday school, and go out and about.

On a side note.....
Gideon is HERE! I had baby Gideon on Monday afternoon. Here is a little slideshow for you. He is still in the hospital, which has been a lot of added stress to the event. He had a small minor surgery, and then wouldn't keep food down. They have been keeping him to make sure there isn't any underlying problem, and keeping him on IVs. He kept his food down yesterday, when they switched formulas, so hopefully, he'll be home by Monday.
