Spread the News!!!

We just got the results of the BMA and we got what we prayed for! James is a rapid early responder to the chemo treatment. I don't know all the details yet, but you can be sure I will update you as soon as I do! If I heard them correctly, the blast count in the marrow was at 5%. This morning's lab report showed 0% in the peripheral blood. Here is what I read this morning(with my own adaptation) from the New Living translation. It says it best, and honestly, for once, I am absolutely without words.

Psalms 68: 34, 35
Tell everyone about God's power.
His majesty shines down on (James.)
His strength is mighty in the Heavens.
God is awesome in His Sanctuary.
The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.
Praise be to God!
