quick update
Hi ladies. Just wanted to drop a quick update by. We still have no definative answrs about DJ. He goes back to oncology on the 2nd to go over yet another series of labs and tests. I believe they arent finding anything because there is nothing to find. I know that thinking can be dangerous, but it helps me.

As for Joey... Its been 2 years and 24 days since C.M. Donated her marrow and saved his life. But the story behind her donation is just amazing... Will drop in and share that really soon. Joey broke his femur July 17, spent 2 weeks in traction, a month in a cast, and had 3 surgeries on his leg. All due to his weakened bones from treating his LCH. Well a week after the cast came off he was walking with a walker. A week after that he was starting to walk without it. Now hes running, riding bikes, etc... Just 2 months after cast removal. Its wonderful.

He also started preschool 2 weeks ago and its making a huge difference for him. Emotionally he is finally beginning to heal from the traumatic first few years.

The other kids are doing wonderful as well. Me... I am ok. I feel broken lately. Cant really explain it. Please keep DJ in your prayers. Will update again soon... Hope to be back online in a few weeks.

Traci!! :) Reading this brought tears to my eyes.

I'm so happy to hear that Joey has recovered so well and so quickly from his broken leg!! And YAY for preschool!! It really is miraculous how he is healing!! :bluecheer: Praise God! I hope and pray he continues to do well.

I've been praying for DJ and will continue to pray every day until his doctors are confident that he is okay. I pray that you are right and there really is nothing to find. Please let us know how things go on the 2nd. :heart:

Re: quick update
thanks all. To answer a few questions...

I just posted the story, at least the basics, on another thread. I left out some personal private details.

As for Joey's bones, we are taking steps to try to strengthen his bones but theres no way to know if the damage done is permanent. At least not at this time. It will take time. (part of that will also be determining if he has growth hormone issues because its common in BMT kids and LCH kids and can affect his bones too)

As for DJ... no new news. More tests. I hate waiting.
