Good news from a fellow multiple myeloma patient

Hi everyone. I've got some really good news to share. We got the results back from Dave's bone marrow extraction and the results show zero multiple myeloma cells!!! When Dave was diagnosed in September, he had 80% presence of multiple myeloma cells. The doctor is waiting back for one more test to determine 100% Dave is in Complete Response, but it looks really good so far. With multiple myeloma, there is no cure at this time so they don't define where Dave is at this point as "remission". But Complete Response would be the "remission" of Multiple Myeloma and is truly the best scenario we can be at!

I know I'm constantly placing my own spirtitual beliefs in this blog, but I believe so much with all my heart that this is by the grace of God. I've prayed every night for this specific outcome, that there would be no cancer in Dave's bone marrow and that is where we are. I know that this is solely by the grace of God and I constantly remind myself to praise him when things are good (like now) and when they are bad. This is our first victory in this fight!!!
