Update on Dave Hutchins

I just spoke with Dave and he asked me to post an update. His computer died yesterday and he won't be able to have anyone look at it until Monday at the earliest.

He got some of his results back from his bone marrow biopsy and it indicates he has a condition called MDS, which stands for myelodysplastic syndromes. He will have an appointment next week to get more information, but it doesn't look like a good result for our friend. I know he will post when he is able to get back online but in the meantime, let's keep Dave in out thoughts and prayers.

Thanks, Fisher's mom. I don't know what MDS is, but will look it up and send lots of prayers and good wishes.

Thanks FM. Dave has been on my mind all day as I knew he was getting his results today. If you hear more before he can get on line, please let us know. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

Loving thoughts and prayers are sent his way. He's a great guy. He even called me the other night to check on me when he noticed I'd been feeling sick.
