Update Jon Ferdinand

Christmas Greetings to all!

Just wanted to give you all the latest on Jon, we saw the doctor for an unrelated issue from the Bone Marrow BX, and he gave us the preliminary Bone Marrow report, as all the results are not in until next week-

Seems the plasma cell level in the Bone Marrow has now reached 10%- which means that he has converted to myeloma. This is an early stage and they are going to treat him …..as the doctor is concerned about the increased level plasma cells in the bone marrow that is producing mutated protein into the blood which is circulating through his kidneys.

This causes kidney damage. So in an attempt to save the kidneys-which at this point are functioning as they should- the doctor is going to begin treatment-because with this disease, the patient has a greater risk of dying from kidney failure than the bone cancer.

This is not what we were hoping to hear- but Praise the Lord- He IS GOOD all the time and we will see Our Lord and Savior get all the glory for the healing that is ours at the cross where Satan, sin, disease, and death were defeated through the shed blood of our Lord!

We certainly covet your prayers and wish all a very Merry Christmas!

Love Tina
