Grant is getting a bone marrow biopsy today. They are looking at his cells again to make sure he is still in remission and that there is no evidence of the Philadelphia Chromosome. We will know today if he is still in remission. We wont have the results on the Philadephia Chromosome for at least a week. So basically we will stressed and worried from about 10:30 this morning until next Friday. I hate the waiting,  but am used to it now.

Hey everyone!

Grant started his Make-a-Wish trip yestereday. His wish was to go to Disney World and his wish was granted.

It is a resort only for kids with life threatning illnesses. We spend the day there and had a blast. This place is amazing. To see pictures from the 1st day, please click the link below.

David here.   Today is Grant's 6th birthday.  Melanie and I are so thankful that he continues to do well.  When he was diagnosed just over 3 years ago, the doctors told us that he had a less than 50-50 chance to make it to his 6th birthday.  We have a long way to go, but today is a day to celebrate.

Grant's birthday party was Saturday.  Many of his classmates, friends and family were able to attend.  Melanie planned a fantastic party, highlighted by Darth Vader and a Jedi performing and puttin...
