25 August 2011


Praise God for the wonderful news that Jeremy's bone marrow aspirate results are MRD Negative! Thank you for praying for him!

This means that last Wednesday was his final bone marrow aspirate! He will still have regular blood tests (6 monthly or so) as well as other health checkups, but no more bone marrow aspirates!

17 August 2011


We are thankful that Jeremy's bone marrow aspirate today was uneventful, and that the bone marrow transplant doctor had arranged for his 2-year bloods to be taken under general anaesthetic. We will hopefully know the results of both his aspirate and his bloods by the end of next week.

His next appointment at hospital clinic will be for his 2-year checkup of his heart, lungs, eyes, teeth and bones, and this will be at the end of September.

T+699 or 23 months!

Praise God that Jeremy is 23 months post-transplant today!

He is looking forward to his bone marrow aspirate on Wednesday 17 August 2011 - partly because he wants to have a "middle of the night party" on Tuesday before he begins his fasting, and also because he has ordered a special meal to eat when he wakes up from his general anaesthetic on Wednesday!

Please pray that the results of this bone marrow aspirate will be MRD Negative.
