Last Lumbar Puncture

Prayer Request : Joseph will have his last Lumbar Puncture with chemo for his central nervous system. He will also have a last bone marrow sample taken to confirm that his leukemia is in remission. It will be a day of fasting for Joseph so please pray for a good day for him, no complications from the procedure and a good report on his bone marrow sample.

This past week Joseph’s neutrophils came up a couple of more ticks from .8 to 1.0. ┬áThis was good news and meant that he can have his last lumbar puncture on Monday the 5th of December as planned.

It is a big day for Joseph and us as a family. Once he has the procedure he continues to take oral chemo on a daily basis until the 27th of December – when he will be taken off all chemo and his immune system will begin its recovery process.

Thank you for praying for Joseph.

    Joe and I are and have been praying for sweet Joseph. We pray that all will go well today and he will return home to enjoy his special Brothers and Sister. What a battle you all have been through. Know you, as we do, give OUR LORD ALL THE GLORY!
