Safe Out Of Surgery

Highlight: Joseph come through the surgery safely and has his new semi-permanent line installed.


There were problems getting the semi-permanent line in to Joseph as he is a small boy with small veins. Because of the difficulty he was in surgery an hour longer than expected. That was a very long hour for me as the previous two surgery’s were shorter than expected.

There was also a new sample of his bone marrow taken to see how the leukemia cells are responding to the steroids so far. This sample will be sent off for very detailed genetic analysis to help fine tune the treatment.

The dental staff came in and looked at his mouth and did not see any major problems.

The line that was in his groin has now been removed and we hope to see him up on his feet soon.

Right now Joseph is still feeling a bit groggy and tired and is propped up in  bed with some food in front of him. He is napping and then having a look around and then napping again.

Thank you for praying for our wee man

  2. I’ve been praying for little Joseph all week as your family is almost constantly been on my mind. I love you guys and am so grateful for the little answers to pray you’re seeing! Thank you so much for keeping us informed.
    You and your family are such a testament to God’s grace and it has been a blessing to see God’s hand on you over the years, Uncle Ed.

  3. It was wonderful when the Lord Himself put His ‘seal of approval’ upon the medical profession in Matthew 9:12 when He said “They that are well need not a physician but they that are sick”. So encouraging to read of the loving medical care and attention that Joseph is receiving and we pray that the Lord will continue to guide and give wisdom to all involved. Our love to you all, C & M.
