Narrowing in on a type

The doctors have ruled out chronic leukemia and are narrowing in on an acute form of leukemia. His blood counts are still unchanged, quite low. His hemoglobin is continuing to drop so we will probably be starting some blood infusions in the next week or so.

We are all doing better today (emotionally) than yesterday. The heavy burden of yesterday took its toll on our family. But it also gave us a chance to share some special time together with a very honest open view of our love. Today, we have all learned more about leukemia than we ever wanted to know.

We know this is a marathon not a sprint so we are buckling in the long haul. It probably will be at least 4-6 weeks in the hospital on this first go around.

Good Morning and thank you for the fabulous site you created to keep us informed on the details unfolding medically and more..especially bathing the car with green soap. Scott specfically is being lifted up into God's grace as are Gloria, Jason and David. Gloria has been such an inspiration to me (us) in any trials and challenges with quotables, verses, and prayers at any moment day or night. Know that this is available to you all 24/7. I'll be on the next plane if you just say the word. Prayers are what you have requested and you have them multi-fold. How blessed we are and grateful to be so strong in faith. In love, health and speedy recovery, and Gloria's favorite verse: "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1"
