later that day....

We believe we've seen God work in a mighty way today.

We are trying to collect stem cells from him which is very hard to do after the marrow has been damaged from chemo. (The first time he collected we got over 40 million cells in one day.)

The procount is something they check each day. It is suppose to tell them about how many cells they can anticipate collecting in a day based on this lab value. Sat the procount was 1 million. He collected 1.1 million. As a general rule, you collect less each day.

Today his procount was 200,000. Our nurse said, it we can't get 500,000 cells in a day, we call it quits. I am not expecting you to collect that many today based on your procount, so i'll call you when i know for sure but this is probably it.

She called. Frank got 2 million today! Twice what he got Saturday! 4 times more than he needed to be able to try again tomorrow.

We are speechless at the goodness of God for his mercy and grace.....

Psalm 106
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
