Excellent blood test result!

Praise the Lord! We have much to give thanks for. Today's blood test showed:
1. Total white blood cells at 3.7 (normal range 4 to 10)
2. HB level is at 9.1 (normal range 14 to 16)
3. Platelets level at 199 (normal range 140 to 300)
The engraftment of stem cells was at 75%, i.e. grafted stem cells are growing.

Other than some poor appetite, nausea, retching and abdominal discomfort caused by the medicine, David is feeling much much better than before. Every good result is possible becaue of God's amazing grace.

David's next medical appointment is on Wed 29Jun whereby he would need to do another BMA (Bone Marrow Aspiration) and full myeloma test to assess his condition after the transplant. Let us continue to pray for full complete healing.

Thanks for your prayers and concern. We are happy to share David's journey with you through this blog, may you also take comfort in this promise:
"The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them."

God bless!
