Praisworthy news today!!!


The results of the bone marrow biopsy pleased the doctors. For the FIRST time since the last relapse, they do not see it full of leukemia cells. In other words the treatment that they have been giving me is working and, and am on the track that they want me on. On their "roadmap" they say that the blood counts are where they should be and that means that I soon should be ready for the bone marrow transplant.

I am also excited about this thanksgiving break because I am not scheduled to be in the hospital for the whole week!


But for now my family and I still wait in patience for what is to come and still give thanks to God for every day and what He's doing.

Even though I feel tired a lot and sleepy, and am basically anemic right now, I am enjoying the rest that I am able to take to let my body recooperate.


Scripture of the day:
Proverbs 17:22-
22A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Hi Charles! It is so great to hear that everything is working the way the doc's expect. I am so glad to hear that you will be able to move to the next step in recovery. We pray every day for you and your family. As for thanksgiving, I will call everybody up and see who can get away to go up there even if for a couple of days. Keep strong and we will all continue the faith. We love you all,
aunt Nelda
hope to see you soon!!!:)

Hey Charles! I really miss you.. My life has been hectic with the usual stuff, but I have kept you in my prayer. Thanks for taking your time to update the details of your journey. I want to send you some powerful packets of scriptures I received from one of the teachers here. She sponsors a new Bible study at our high school. It's called Connection-isn't it awesome?

TRULY WE SERVE A MIRACLE WORKING GOD. THIS IS A GOOD REPORT. AND WE CONTINUE TO BELIEVE FOR THE BEST STILL TO COME. REMEMBER EVERYBODY/ EVERYTHING INCLUDING CANCER WILL HAVE TO BOW DOWN TO THAT NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERYNAME AND THAT'S THE PRECIOUS NAME OF "JESUS". I KNOW THAT THROUGH ALL THIS YOU WILL COME OUT MORE THAN A CONQUEROR. AFTER ALL THESE TRIALS AND TESTING YOU WILL COME OUT AS PURE GOLD. THIS CA CAN'T HOLD YOU DOWN BEC. THE POWER THAT RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEATH IS WITHIN YOU. MEDITATE ON THIS AND BELIEVE AND WALK IT OUT. PRAY THA YOU AND THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING WEEK. SAY HELLO TO YOUR MOM FROM NORA, CARMEN, LISA, ME AND THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY HERE AT THE CHURCH OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD. I'M SURE YOUR DAD IS DOING GREAT TOO AND READY FOR THE PROCEDURE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. HOW ARE YOUR SIS AND BROD. MADE NEW FRIENDS? LIKE THEIR NEW SCHOOL? WILL CHECK ON YOU NEXT WEEKEND.

I just read through your last couple of blogs... Charles I really enjoy reading your interpretation and use of scripture into your daily life. Very impressive! Also, I thought your comment about playing "Christian" was very interesting. Anyway, I miss you and it is great to see you posting stuff.
