May 13, 2011

Sorry it has been a couple of days...the blog's website was down and we were not able to log in.  Jackson is doing well.  Yesterday morning he had a bone marrow biopsy.  The anesthesia made Jackson a little sick to his tummy yesterday and he was very tired.  Today he is doing much better.  We just got finished talking to our Doctor and she is very pleased with his bone marrow results.  Jackson's counts are also going up.  His platelets are up to 100,000 which is the first sign that his own bone marrow is starting to work correctly again on its own.  There is a possibility if things continue to go well that he could come home early next week.  Then he would have a 1-2 week break (with a few clinic visits in between) at home before returning for round 2.  Erik and I have been amazed at the response we have had from friends and family about the wristbands.  We have such wonderful friends and family who have been selling selling selling to help us out!  We will now have Jackson Leukemia bands all over the country supporting our little trooper. 

For the LORD thy God will hold they right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. 
Isaiah 41:13
