Bone Marrow Biopsy Today


Just a short post to ask for prayer today as Ernie has another bone marrow biopsy (#3 for him since he was diagnosed). This, of course, is such an important indicator of how successful the chemo and transplant have been. We don't want to see any myeloma cells in the marrow! Please pray for minimal pain and for excellent results. Ernie is doing so very well with his recovery, and even beginning to get his hair back. This picture was taken a little over a week ago when he was able to return to church for the first time since transplant. What a joyous day that was! He sure did love seeing our church family again, and he gave out lots of hugs in thanksgiving for the many prayers lifted up on his behalf.

Philippians 4:6 - "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."
