View Full Version : Grandson Jack Rang The Bell Today

Jack finished the last of his radiation today and he got to ring the bell. His chemo was done last month. Now we just have to wait for the final tests in the middle of January to see if he's in remission or if he'll have to have more therapy. We're all praying that he'll be in remission. I believe all the prayers are helping him get to remission.

Did you get to be present for the bell ringing? It is so very emotional! When MM did it last week, the other patients were clapping and cheering, as were the nurses. A couple of the nurses had tears in their eyes.

Hope all continues to be well. I believe the same as you.

Thank you all for such kind wishes. Unfortunately we weren't there for the bell ringing. Jack is in Nebraska and we're in Florida. However, he and his family will be here tomorrow night because they're going on a cruise out of Port Canaveral the next day. I'll make sure they read your posts. As to Jack's feelings about it all, I'm sure he's jumping up and down on the inside, but on the outside he's very quiet and subdued. Hard to know what he's thinking. His family is guardedly rejoicing because they're waiting for the results of the mid-Jan. tests. I'll let you all know the results.
