Coming Home Soon!!!

Great News today! Monday morning i get to bring Colin home for about a week and a half!!!!! We are SO excited for him to have some time at home, then he comes up only for about 4 days or so, and then he gets to go back home for another week or 2!!! He'll do this for four times of chemo treatment and then we are still not sure about the transplant. I guess they only have 3 cases of little kids with reoccuring Burkitt's Lymphoma who have underwent a second donor transplant, so they are kind of lost on what to do with Colin, since he's the only one with this outcome whom they've treated with Burkitt's as an adult. Leave it to him to be the rare one..heehee:) We are praying and trusting God will lead on what the best thing will be to do!
He is doing great though, again today, he's had not one side effect from the chemo and they just finished another spinal chemo so he's sleeping nicely!
I am in awe at how much food he is eating, but he's determined to get healthy and back on his feet strong again, so i just have to smile and be so proud at his sheer determination! That's my Colin!
We are just itching to get home to our boys, it's been so hard on Colin to be away for so long, it's not easy to be apart, so we are so thankful for this much needed time to be together as a family again!
i'll let you know how tomorrow goes!

luv, Melissa


  1. Wow! What a difference a couple of weeks can make... and everything the Lord does in the meantime behind the scenes. Who else can we turn to? We're really happy for you both.
    I'm impressed with your faithful updates, Melissa. Thanks!

    Colin,just to let you know that we are following your progress. I know if Grandma Willms was still here she would have been praying for you daily.We'll try to pick up where she left off. Thinking of you often Jim and Lin.
