Study Approved.....

Dr. Erba came in this afternoon and told us the
repeat bone marrow biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of AML.
I wasn't surprised or expecting anything different.
He also told us Daddy was
selected to participate in the drug study.
The computer randomization was done
and he will receive the study drug, clofarabime.
It is said to have less side effects than the traditional AML treatment, 7+3.
I had already decided, in my mind, it would
be the standard treatment,  7+3, so I thought I
would try to find a Bible verse related to 7:3 that spoke to my heart.
I searched all combinations of 7:3, 1:3-7, 3:7 and found nothing.
Now, I know why.
God already had plans for
him to receive clofarabine not 7+3.
So, after what seems like waiting
a lifetime, chemo starts in the morning.
We are beyond thankful at this news.
Without a doubt, God's timing is perfect.
Please pray for us as we start a new part of this journey.
We are all still trying to figure out this new "normal."
I will update tomorrow.
Love you MUCH!
