Day +30 - Bone Marrow Aspiration Day

Hey Everyone,
As most of you already know, today is the day dad has his bone marrow aspirated to test to see the state of the disease or HOPEFULLY lack there of!  Lots of you know this because my aunt lisa organized a prayer vigil to carry us all through this pivotal day, and we THANK YOU for the BOTTOMS of our HEARTS!!!  You have all been so amazing for all of us through all of this - today his counts were not what we were hoping for - his platelets slipped back down to a 3 and all of his other counts dropped as well............ they gave him a platelet transfusion this morning to try and get the count up prior to the procedure.  We had some concern over him doing the procedure with the state of his counts, but they assured us that they needed to go ahead with it b/c it is very important for us to have the results as quickly as possible.  So, I just talked to mom and they just took him back to start the aspiration.  Mom is sitting in the waiting room meditating and praying- she has been such a rock through all of this, what an amazing wife and mom!  Please join us in praying during the procedure, for it to go well, and for the results to be GOOD!  I will of course update the MINUTE we know anything- For now we keep the faith! 
Love to all!


  1. Jessica,

    Thanks for the updates. Tell your dad to keep fighting. He has a strong family to help him through it, you guys keep up the good work.


  2. Just to let everyone know, we won't have results for a while but the nurse said that the proceedure went well, very little bleeding praise God and Mel and I are back at the condo. He ate some soup for lunch and promptly fell asleep.
    Love to all,

  3. Hi guys,
    Thank you Jessica for making this blog available so I do not have to call the family with questions. Give Peb a big kiss and hug and let him know that my prayers go to him and the family. "Faith is delibrate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time".
    Love you guys,
