Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Joey was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia - a failure of the bone marrow to generate properly - a very serious condition. This happened when we were in Bellevue, NE, having arrived there on May 25th, so that we could get our household goods shipped to Ohio and complete the sale on our house before moving to Dayton, OH. Joey was flown to Children's Hospital of Cincinnati (world-renowned for bone marrow transplants) on Sunday, June 3rd, for treatment since we would be moving to Dayton which is one hour away from Cincinnati.
The doctors discussed a number of treatment options with us, but the best one for Joey would be a bone marrow transplant. We were very fortunate that two of our children were a match.
Joey is a fighter --- he is doing well and is learning patience. He and all of us would be so grateful if you would pray for healing for him. We know that all is in God's Hands, and we trust in Him! Thank you so much for all your concern for Joey and us and for reaching out to us in friendship. We will keep you updated through this Caring Bridge site. God bless you!
