I reread my post after my sis called because I confused her...I should have said "no cancer cells were seen in the white cells"

His platelets are 118 today and the WBC is 6.2..normal. Before he didn't have any white cells..

He just needs to get stronger..
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

It's an amazing and wonderfull thing, the power of prayer, and the power of John's and your positive outlook. You have displayed rare trust, faith, and courage, during this time, and never gave up hope. That, my dear Marge, is truly heroic.

I am so happy for you and your son.
