February 19th, 2012. Day +345.   1 comment

We wanted to write a quick post and let everyone know about a couple of important things.

Charlotte with the dove she made in Sunday School.

There will be a blood drive this Thursday at the Columbus Faith Lutheran Church from 11:30-5:30.  We will also be signing people up to be on the bone marrow registry.  If you are able, please try to attend.  Amy and I still have a long way to go to make up for all of the blood products Charlotte received during her treatment.

Yesterday we received some sad news.  Neal, one of the AML teenagers in the hospital, and a neighbor of CJ’s during her transplant stay, has been sent home with palliative care.  His relapsed leukemia has not been responding well to the tough treatment he has been going through.  He has fought harder than most should have to and we will never stop praying for him and his family.  It’s a rotten reminder of this disease and the heartache it can cause at any time.

We went to church this morning and Charlotte and Molly were great.  After the service, our pastor Jim suggested Charlotte stop in on the Sunday School class.  She had a great time with the wonderful teachers and the other kids.  It was her first school type experience and she did so terrific!  We couldn’t be more proud.

  1. Charlotte is looking good! Love that dove, too. You are so very blessed! We’ll keep Neal and his family in our prayers.
