Oh...This One's Been Hard

We are almost finished with the conditioning therapy required for transplant and I am amazed anyone lives through it. Adam has been a little trooper, but this chemo is, by far, the worst he's ever had. For the most part, he's been okay, but he has had way more breakthrough nausea and vomiting during this round then before. And from what Mark reports, he's feeling pretty lousy. As of this writing, Adam only has one more dose to go and then he is finished. Hopefully forever!!! That said, the doctors have been extremely pleased with how Adam has handled it thus far. We still have a few ugly things ahead of us, but I am always thankful when the chemo is done.

Give Adam a big squeeze for me. I'm so glad you're almost done. It seems that everyone is fasting and praying for you guys. I had a youth from my ward, call me last night and tell me that he would be fasting for you and Adam this week. My friend Rachel Merrill just moved to Fairfax (maybe your old ward) and said your names were mentioned multiple times during sacrament meeting yesterday. So everyone is praying for you. We love you all!

It is great to hear that Adam is tolerating things as best he can so far. The Branch here is praying for your family and we hope a wonderful recovery lies ahead, as you said, forever!! What a remarkable family Adam has to pull him through.

Adam and Janna are our main concern, with Mark and Russell right behind as support for you. So, so many people were fasting and praying for you yesterday, and the prayers will continue. Some old friends of ours were visiting from Cedar City, Utah (Harley and Helen Thompson). When they were updated about your family, they pledged to put your names on the St. George (Utah) Temple rolls, where Helen is a temple worker now. Adam's epic is reaching people far and wide. I have had several people stop me when I shop at the grocery store (some I don't even know) and ask, "How is your grandson. He is on our prayer roll at church."
We love you so much.

It breaks my heart how much Adam is going through! But, like you've said, they're special little people who can get through this. Warriors of their own kind. Our prayers continue to go out for you all!

We join all the others in our prayers and fasting and I put Adam on the Draper temple roll also. You are such troopers and are teaching all of us about strength and faith. We love you! A. Gail, U. Lanning and Adam too!
