In Need of Prayers

This is the post that I hoped I would never have to write. I received a phone call on Tuesday afternoon from Dr. Broome saying that my leukemia has returned and that I have relapsed. The wind was taken out of me and I could not speak nor would I know what to say. Dr. Broome was very sympathetic and tried to remain positive. Basically, the next step is to be admitted to Georgetown Hospital for up to 6 weeks to receive highly intense chemotherapy that will hopefully put my cancer back into remission. After that, I will briefly recover and then head to Hershey, PA to receive a bone marrow transplant. This is going to be a long, terrifying journey but one that we must take. I promise to continue to put 100% of body, mind, soul, and faith into this journey and I ask that everybody doing this promises to do the same with me. We can beat this and we can get through this.

I am not going to write too much now but I will write next week from Georgetown. Please pray for the success of this treatment. Please pray for Hanna, who is my strength and amazes me with every word she speaks. She is my rock and I love her forever. Please pray for our familes and friends. With all this prayer and love flowing, we will fight this fight and win this fight. I am struggling to find good words right now so I am just going to leave it at this for the moment. I plan to lean on family and friends just like I did before so thank you for being there to help. I love you all and,

ALL Will Be Well,
