It is well, is well, is well with my soul!

And, according to Dr. Barlogie it is also well with my bone marrow. The latest round of tests provided us with a good clean report. Praise God!

According to the fine Dr's in Little Rock I am in remission. In fact the places on my bones where the cancer had attacked are healing up.

The next step in this on-going battle will be what is known as consolidation chemotherapy. This means I will cycle through another 6 rounds of chemo - 2 weeks on - 10 days off.
This process will take from now until about May 2007 to complete.

The really good news about this treatment is that they (Univ. of Arkansas MIRT) have clinical results that show that this treatment regimen really does keep High Risk patients in remission.
If you weren't aware I am a High Risk patient.

That's about it. Keep lifting me and the family up.
God has seen fit to keep me here for a while longer. Pray that I spend myself wisely in His service.

Well, we are in Little Rock. He's almost done with everything and we can get on the road to Memphis. Things have gone well.

The bone marrow was one of his best ever ~ said he hardly felt anything. He gave the tech a big hug. Now he's locked in the big radioactive room and I can't go in I decided to come check my email.

Halloween was fun. I'll put a picture up next time. I keep forgetting to hook up the camera. Frank was a conehead (like from Saturday Night Live). He wasn't as excited about his costume this year, so the mood seemed low key. Plus it was cold and rainy.
He missed the festival at church because of a fever, and he was bummed about it. That's when we have our fun.

But on Tues, little bitty ghost and goblins came just the same. I don't know about your neighborhood, but it was the year of the witch at our house. Not as many princesses as I normally see on little girls.

The break has been wonderful. Frank made the comment that it seems longer than 5 weeks. We are praying for great results. We don't really know what the doctor has in mind as far as future treatments. He's ready for a break. So, please pray that God will go before and prepare Frank's heart for what he has to say on Monday.

Pray that he would have wisdom and clear direction on what to do next.

We love you all and feel so very blessed!! All covered up in His grace, Peg
