Brightness...

We just got the results of Sam's bone marrow biopsy.

Drum roll....

Leukemia free!
AND upon further testing to seek out the most minute amount of leukemia .... His marrow was CLEAR.

Don't get too excited - there are still three rounds of chemo to go.

But for today - we weep tears of gratitude and joy. In this moment of victory we know there is still a long road ahead of us. And I'm not a doctor.

But I think it just got a tiny bit easier.

That tiny pinprick of light?
It got a lot brighter today.

Thanks for being with us on this journey. Keep the prayers and hope and love and encouragement coming.

They are working.
