Well, it seems like a long time since we have been here and it is hard not to be near all the people that we love, but some good news! Elijah is now stable enough that we moved down the the pediatric oncology floor! It is so nice to be making progress. If you would have asked us a week ago, things looked hopeless and never ending. We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father and all of you for helping us through this! So, for those of you that need it, the number to the room is 319-353-9493. Try our cell phones first in case he is sleeping, but if you really need to get in touch with us, then use that number. Elijah will be getting his bone marrow analysis again tomorrow and we need the prayers to get below 5% blasts. If he has less then 5%, then that is the best result we could possibly get and he would technically be in remission. The doctors don't think that is very likely considering the high numbers that he had, but it is possible, and that would be the best news so please keep that in your prayers. Once again, we love you all and are very appreciative of everything that you have done for us. We'll update later today.
