Goodmorning my dear quilting friends!!

I have some great news to share!!!
Douwe had another bone marrow punction he goes in every month or so.........the results came back and all was good!!! He has to go in for the next punction in 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!

He also started working again last week, 3 hours a day for 3 days a week, this will become more over time, but it is a step forward big time!

And last but not least: He will be turning 50 next weekend!!!
There have been manny days this past year when we were all sure he would not make it till 50.....and here he is, almost 50 years young, we will be having a dinnerparty next saterday, his wife will be 50 next summer, and they have their 20th wedding anniversary next summer, so they will the throwing a big party somewhere the summer monts, but this weekend it will be just my parents and my brothers and sisters and husbands/wifes!!!

I thought this was great news, all things turned out so much better than we first thought, never under estemate the power of love, friendship an prayer from around the world.

My dear Klaisen, how very thrilled I am to read this! I am more than a little blessed by Douwe's recovery and continue to keep him in my daily prayers. Please when you see him next, give him a hug from me in North Carolina.

Don't forget the medical staff in charge of his care. Lots of praise for them as well. It's been a long road for Douwe and his loved-ones. Such great news for a situation that seemed so hopeless early on. Please send him our best wishes and congratulations on reaching his 50th. Have a super fun celebration!

The celebration in his heart and those that love him is the best feeling ever. When my hubby went from monthly scans to every 6 months I cried for 2 days I was so relieved. Good thoughts for all of you.
