Another Dose of Great News!

We got some more great news today...Alex is also free of Fanconi Anemia! So, now we have TWO healthy and one waiting for healing to come from his baby sister! Although the road ahead is still scary and long, we can see the light waiting at the end of it!!!

We spent another long few days at Children's having all kinds of tests done on Max - kidney function, heart, CT scans to check for any signs of infection and all kinds of blood work. Ellee had additional blood work done today and last Thursday along with a full physical today to be sure that she is ready for all of this too. So far everything looks great with both of them and we are gearing up to begin the process for the transplant. As of today, they are tentatively thinking we may be admitted by the end of next week. They are still waiting on some final diagnosis testing for Max to determine exactly his course of treatment, etc. but, then we should be ready to go.

We thank you all so much for your continued thoughts and prayers, food, gifts, cards, etc....for donating blood in Max's honor, for donating toys to Child Life, etc. Everything has been so touching and has made this journey a little easier along the way. You have also brought many smiles to Max's face, as well as Alex and Ellee's.

We are so very blessed...despite the difficulty of our journey currently, we feel so lucky to have so much. Three beautiful children, fabulous families, an amazing supportive community, the best doctors and nurses you can find...it just goes on and on. Please continue your prayers for all of us, they really are working.

    We sat with Matt, Alex and Will at the Xavier Game Saturday. Alex is a real fan.
    We thought it was funny the way Alex stood and cheered the whole game and guarded Max's seat awaiting his return.
    We will keep you all in our prayers.
