Below is Scotts announcement from his web site.........

TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 2008 11:09 AM, CDT
We got home from Monday's appointment in Omaha kind of late last night so I did not get this journal updated until this morning...Well we got great news, the results of the bone marrow showed no signs of leukemia what so ever.Another great thing happened when the doctor took me off another med, another pill off the long list.The good news continued when the doctor cut us loose to live at home. I will go in for blood work here in Lincoln at the Oncologist and get transfusions if I need them here in Lincoln. We don't have to go back to Omaha for 3 weeks (and about every 3 weeks after). This was pretty much unexpected but very welcome news.Yesterday was a great day filled with great news that I Praise the Lord for and thank all my family and friends for their thoughts, prayers and support.Scott and Ann

This news made our week GREAT,,,,,,nothing else compares!!!!!


This is a picture I took of Scott back in early Feb. when Mikel and I were in Omaha at the Transplant Center. He is just beginning to get his 3rd dose of very, heavy Chemo and about 10 days before the Bone Marrow Transplant. He doesn't have any hair on his head; he is wearing a cap with "hair" built into it that I brought up to him from South Texas.:-) He soon lost his chin whiskers from the Chemo.... I wish we had some current up-to-date pictures. He has come a LONG way since then!!! Thank God!!!!! Bless his heart, he has been fighting this since Oct 1st, nearly 7 months! He still has a long way to go but he gets better every day.


You can follow his progress at his web site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/smcfall


We are getting extremely anxious to go to Lincoln, NE and see him. I'm watching the weather very close. Starting to prepare things for the move. It will sure be good to see him and Ann!!!


It was a GREAT WEEK !!!!!


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again next week. All is fine on this end.


Mike
