Gabriel Update

*** Update on 6/4/07 Gabriel is back in the hospital. Time to start up those prayer lines again! Click here for more information.
Last night I received a wonderful update about our little "leukemia boy," Gabriel Sullivan.

On day 15 we were told Gabriel's lab results came back and the results were so
phenomenal that the lab may have made a mistake. 1% leukemia cells in the bone marrow was almost unbelievable for only 8 days of treatment, the goal is to get him into remission by day 29, and under 5% is considered remission.. So a 2nd bone marrow biopsy was done.

Today Oncology called (10:30am Tuesday May 22, 2007) to tell us, the first test was actually correct. The 2nd bone marrow biopsy came back with 1.5% leukemia cells in the marrow. A deeper test into these results showed NO leukemia cells active anywhere.

His 3 years of treatment will go on, but the prognosis is very good. Alleluia!

Thank you for all your prayers and support,
Tom
