    Default Update on the Otten family (that's us) and Douwe

    Dear friends!!

    Today is kind of bittersweet.......my daughter Roselique turns 18 today, my DH and I have our 28 wedding anniversary today (Yep that was a great present 18 years ago....)
    So we are thankful and happy about that!!!!

    On the other hand we are waiting and waiting for a donor match phonecall.........
    Next friday is a big day, the doctors will take bone marrow again from Douwe to check his blood. If his body made good cells they will start getting on with the transplant, if his body made evil cells again they will start another chemo right away.......

    So on one hand we are happy and celabrating, on the other hand we are anxious waiting on news!!!

    Thanks for caring and praying for my family!!!

    I hope next saterday I can go and see him again, he is bold by now, so that must be kind of a shock to see.......wearing a cap must look cool right..........
    My parents are stronger than they were before, I am so proud of them. You guys are pulling them through also!!!! Thanks!!!!!!!

    Hugs and love to all!!!!!

    I'll post a picture of both my birthday girl and my DH and I..........all smiles......
