David Burge Updates

David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

Bone Marrow Biopsy Booked

with 4 comments

I started this post yesterday…

David’s blood levels are now high enough ( ie within normal ranges)  that the consultant has ordered a bone marrow biopsy on Wednesday (today). The results will determine if there is any possibility of a Bone Marrow Transplant. We  have an appointment on Thursday (tomorrow) with the consultant. There will be some preliminary results through by then, if they are not good then we will be going down a different path. If they are OK, then Dave will have more heavy chemo to try and achieve that good 2nd remission.

I have been keeping up with  Mary Pearson’s updates . She has had a BMT and now a relapse. She did not qualify for a trial she was hoping would help, so she is going back to a particular chemo that made her very ill.

Mitch writes

“It sometimes can be unsettling when you are committing to a path and there is a chance it can change by any of the outcomes of any of the tests.  The path, almost, can become what you hope in.

Psalm 127 :1-2
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.  Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.”

For those of you that pray for us and the children, thank you. We have had some real struggles with some of the children in the last few weeks but we feel we have been given  Holy Spirit inspired wisdom and the result has been deeper relationships and understanding.

    • Hey James,
      The news from the doctor today was not good. Still keep praying. I really appreciate your prayers. I have a birthday this month too – on May 22. Joseph (one of my boys) will be 9 on May 31.
      Thanks again for your support. Thank your Mum and Dad too.
      God bless,
      Mr Burge.
