Pray for Grant

David here.  Its been a few months since we updated the blog.  As most of you know, no news is usually good news.  We just received the results from Grant's last bone marrow tests.  No leukemia cells or evidence of Philadelphia chromosome detected!  This was great news!   Grant will continue to have his bone marrow tested every 3 months for the next year and a half.  He will also have his blood tested monthly.

Grant's mobility continues to improve very gradually.  He is taking a gymnastics class which he loves and it seems to be helping his improvement.  He wants to run everywhere which makes us very nervous.  He falls on the playground nearly every day and we get a call from the school nurse at least once a week.  He usually has scrapes and bruises all over his body and we have to remind ourselves that all kids get bumps and bruises. 

Melanie and I urge you to continue to keep Grant and all children with cancer in your thoughts and prayers.  We continue to see signs of how Grant's experiences have affected all who are close to us.  When the kids and their friends, the Durkins and the Cintrons,  came back to the house after trick or treating was finished, before they even started to eat their candy, they set aside a large portion of their candy to take to the kids on the 9th floor at Texas Children's.  They did this without any of the parents telling them to do so.   

Take Care
