Update on Blake - One year later

Last year I wrote a bit about our friends son Blake and his battle with Leukemia.
We received a note today one year later after his transplant.
Amazing. thank you for your prayers!

the note from his father:

Greetings Fellow Prayer Warriors and Friends,

Last Thursday, March 27 marked the one year anniversary of Blake’s stem cell transplant. It is hard to believe that one year has already transpired but I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your faithful prayers on Blake’s behalf. He is a walking miracle. We met with his doctor and everything looks great – although several spots (I won’t mention some of them) are sore because he received his first round of childhood immunizations all over again since he has a brand new immune system.

Blake has been taking online courses at a local community college last semester and this one also. He does great keeping up but I think he will be ready to get into a regular classroom in the Fall. We are not sure yet where that might be and if there is anything you would still like to pray for Blake, it would be for God’s direction on next steps.

This one year anniversary is just another reminder to us of God’s faithfulness and also the faithfulness of God’s people. You have blessed us by your prayers more than you can know! I hug Blake every day and I think he gets a little tired of it, but I am so thankful that God has gifted him some more time on this earth.

May God bless you as you continue to serve Him faithfully!
