Emily just called and the flow cytometry test results came back. The percentage of abnormal cells went from 20% to 50%. It has been as high at 62.5% back in February…but this is still not very good news. We are going to begin using Campath again on Monday or Tuesday next week. The Campath helped before, but was always harder on Trey’s skin and body…but we are left without options and must try it again. The last time Trey had Campath, he still had his spleen, so perhaps he will respond better with the spleen being out. Only God knows. Needless to say, it will be critical for Trey’s body to respond well.
Here is the Psalm I have come to often and read once again this morning. It’s interesting because I often come to this Psalm on challenging days…the Lord is good to give His truth at the most needed times:
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord (Psalm 27:1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 13, 14).”
