The Magic Number Is 100!

It snowed all day long and we couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate reaching our magic number. Today is day 100 post transplant. We still have to observe some isolation restrictions, but just the simple fact that we made it this long is huge. Adam had a bone marrow aspirate this last Tuesday and the results came back with 100% donor cells (ba-da-bing) and no sign of Leukemia. He is in high spirits and is very energetic. Hooray for miracles!

Okay, so...back to the snow. We figured after it reached well over 12 inches that we should probably go shovel our driveway. The boys were more than willing to suit up and come join the fun. Russell played hard in the big snow drifts, and Adam was completely content to use his new snow shovel. The boys had a blast! Mark and I didn't enjoy it so much, but I suppose shoveling piles of never ending wet stuff has a tendency to suck the fun out of it. However, even with the pulled muscles and the sore backs, we are so thankful for all of our blessings. What a remarkable day!

You made it! Hip-hip-hurray!! That's so awesome that you got so much snow! I've seen maybe 3 flurries in the 7+ years that I've lived in Texas. I would love to see a big dump of snow one day. :) Have fun!

Hooray! I'm so glad you're done with the 100 days. And hooray that there's no sign of leukemia. And hooray for the snow. Can't wait to see you guys.

As Mark has said, the fact of Adam and his mother having a perfect match is beyond comprehensionand should never have happened...which is another way of His profound love for all of us. Janet and I are so very glad Adam is well...and that you had more snow than we did. :)

As the hymn says, 'what wonderous gift is this'.
