    Default Update on Douwe!

    Yesterday there was another update on my brother!
    I will copy/paste his email so you can all read what he had to tell us all

    Dear family and friends,

    This morning I had the first bone marrow aspiration to determine the effect of the second chemotherapy to assess. At the end of the afternoon the doctor brought the wonderful news that my bone marrow is now completely empty, and so completely leukemia-free! We are so happy, grateful and relieved with this fantastic message and would so like to share with you.

    Early next week will be the second bone marrow aspiration done and we hope, trust and pray sure there is no single leukemia cell in my bone marrow will be found. If the result is again quite good, the bone marrow transplant will be put in motion.

    Lilian and I want again thank you all very much for all the support you have offered in many ways. Will you continue to pray for strength, endurance and healing?

    We remain confident of complete cure!

    Douwe and Lilian


    The transplant is in sight!
    We had another call of the doctors, my older sister is a 100% match also, so they have 2 donors now.
    Since I already had the intake and told the doctor I use medication, it might be my sister they are going for.
    It is all fine with me, we will see who will be the final donor, as long Douwe will become healthy!!!

    Thanks so much, for all the love and support, I am still not as active on the forum as I was, but I will be soon.
    Sometimes I am just to tierd to respond........
    Last saterday I saw Douwe he is a very sick man, but the sparkle in his eyes was back, my parents and my DH and I had a good visit, and we hope and pray that the new cells his body is making will be GOOD cells!

    Thanks again and God bless you all my dear dear quilting friends!!!

    If this makes me cry I can't imagine what it must do for you, Klasien.

    Klasien, no wonder you have been on my mind today. I am sending you a private message. Hope to hear from you soon.

    That's great news! I'm glad that he is responding so well to the chemo, hopefully it won't have to go on much longer.

    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
