Today Steve met with Dr.Pulsipher to get the results of the bone marrow aspirate and biopsy that he had a week ago. His result was zero leukemia in his bone marrow, and absoultely no more minimal residual disease or MRD!!! Notta, nothing, none. We are so thrilled with this news, and so thankful for this great blessing from our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ. Steve and all of us have so appreciated all the prayer, fasting, faith, strength and encouragement from all of you, our friends and family. We never could have made it without you.
Steve will now begin to taper off the immune suppressing drugs that he has been taking, and his immune system will start getting stronger. He will continue some treatments to help his body get over the reaction he has had against the donor stem cells he received.
Thank you all for sharing in our Joy!
