Friends, we are so so happy to share that Bo’s biopsy results came back CLEAR!
It’s been a long 10 days since his clinic appointment. I’ll admit, I haven’t waited as well as I would have hoped. It’s been agony. Hard to eat, sleep, my thoughts getting away from me. I wrestle with anxiety and these last 10 days have been a battle. But God has been merciful and faithful.
We received his chimerism results earlier in the week which was a mercy—they came back 100% donor which is exactly what we want to see and gave us hope while we waited for his biopsy results.
Another huge answer to prayer is that the biopsy gave Bo’s doctor a clear picture of what is happening with his platelets. His marrow revealed that it is producing platelets normally (yay!) which in turn reveals that the platelets aren’t surviving in his bloodstream. His doctor believes they are being destroyed which can happen—either his organs that filter blood target them and destroy them or his immune system targets them and destroys them. For now, since they have a clear picture of what’s going on, she is content to watch and wait as this can correct itself in time. Otherwise, they can treat with steroids if need be. We are so grateful that God has given us clear answers!
We cannot thank you enough for your faithful prayers for Bo and our family. We felt held up and carried once again. This journey has been long and hard and we are so grateful that we aren’t walking it alone. Thank you again.
To God Be The Glory!
