Thankful Thursday: Good News!

We received the results of Ernie's latest bone marrow biopsy yesterday and there were NO DETECTABLE MYELOMA CELLS! We are so very grateful. It's been a long year, but we know the outcome could have been much different as bleak as things looked to us in January! During this season of Thanksgiving, our hearts overflow with love and gratitude to each and every person who has prayed for us, helped us, supported us, visited us, sent cards to us, and called us. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!!!

They started Ernie back on Aredia to strengthen his bones and he will have this infusion once a month. They are also beginning the process of starting Revlimid, a daily chemo pill for maintenance. Hopefully the side effects are manageable.

That is it for now. We will be spending Thanksgiving in Boone with our family and though we always love this holiday and time together, this year will certainly hold special meaning.
