David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

David’s health is continuing to improve. He was back on chemo today. He took a couple of days break from the chemo schedule to make sure he had recovered from the fever. At the moment there is nothing to stop him returning home later in the week.

We met with the physiotherapist and the occupational therapist a couple of days ago. They have issued us with various bits of equipment – a walker etc – to make Dave’s life easier. He is experiencing muscle weakness which means he cannot walk unaided at the moment. We also briefly chatted about the bone marrow transplant. They were both really wonderful, positive people, full of great suggestions and they dealt with all the issues with a good sense of humour. Not many people have cerebral palsy and leukemia, making David a unique patient! I had a very helpful chat with the charge nurse on the ward (a suggestion from a friend) and I feel very happy that Dave’s unique needs can be catered for 🙂

I wanted to mention a couple of comments on the blog:

“Dear David,

I am a post bone marrow transplant patient. I am praying for you. Jesus is our healer. Our hope in Him is abundant.

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13


Thank you David Ting. I have linked to your blog on the sidebar. Often when I swallow I am reminded of his post on day 12 after the BMT.


David and Tarnya,

I’m so sorry to hear of your sickness. We will be praying for your in Rhode Island, USA. I finally finished editing our show for Truth Matters. It is available for download at http://www.truthmattersradio.com or you can just click here [click on the link to listen or right click to save on your computer]. Shortly after our interview I entered grad school and did not have the time to finish editing. Sorry for the delay. After much editing we both sound like we know what we are talking about :)

grace & peace


Thank you to Sean who did a radio interview with David. He has done a great job of the edit. Thank you for all your hard work in putting this together. For those interested in Conditional Immortality, I think you will enjoy the radio interview. It is also lovely for us to have a record of Dave talking about this aspect of his faith journey.
