singing praises!!!

THERE IS NO DENYING THAT GOD IS WHO I KNOW HE IS.

I just got a call from Ethan's doctor in Boston. Ethan's blood results showed that he is still 100% donor blood!! Did you hear that?? STILL A 100% DONOR BLOOD CELLS!!! At this point, we're 10 months out since his transplant and this is an excellent indicator that the transplant worked, his old cancerous blood is gone, and his new blood is working and growing beautifully! This also means, no further chemo (aka: Accutane) is needed!!

I'd scream if it wouldn't wake up my sweet little miracle - who, incidentally, got his first cold this week and isn't feeling good! But what a miracle in and of itself... he's 17 months old and this is his FIRST cold?! His immune system is having it's chance to really see if it's up to the challenge and I know it is!

Did I mention that I wanted to scream!? Well, I do! I'm about to burst with joy and thankfulness to the Lord for His grace and mercy in answering our faith. Thank you a million times for the prayers you've said on our behalf!

I'm telling you... I've mentioned it time and time again... Be bold. Have faith. A heart without doubt. Not because you deserve for God to do something great in your life, but because He's all-powerful and able to do so. He's the God of all mercy and grace. I've never known that to be more real or true than in this entire experience with Ethan's life. I pray this testimony of our journey has and will continue to encourage you to trust the Lord. I know it's been an encouragement to me. He's been so evident. I'm truly learning so much...

Take Him at His Word.

Pure and simple.

[Lord], Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
and [I] your servant loves them.
Psalm 119:140

Kasey, I don't know you or your family, but I am praising the Lord with you for Ethan's good results! I'm best friends with Liz Schuster and keep up with you through her blog for Lydia. It is amazing to me the ways technology can unite Christians in prayer. I'm praying for you and your sweet family. In Christ, Allison Bonds

I'm going through a lot and just came upon your blog. Gives me confirmation that God is still working miracles, we just have to leave everything to him and believe completely and totally. I will be back to share my miracle with you as you have shared Ethan's with the world. God bless.

That is wonderful news. I am so excited and happy for your family. I don't post many comments. I usually read and pray for Ethan, but this news is to good not to make a comment. Congrats and praise God.

Kasey, What an answer to all the prayers you and Adam have prayed for little Ethan. It has been a joy to follow your ups and downs during this whole process. I am so thrilled to know how well Ethan is doing. Finally you all have a normal life after all this time. May God Bless your family in a very special way.
