Esther update- Nov.

Here is the last update on little Esther...

Dear Praying Friends,

With Thanksgiving literally at our doorstep, we wanted to say thank you again for all that has been done for Esther and ourselves through your prayer, love, and gifts.

The last two weeks since we came back from Ohio have been basically spent in the hospital. Esther received her second chemo treatment and then got a secondary infection that has kept her in the hospital this last week getting IV antibiotics. Praise the Lord they are planning to release her on Saturday. Next week Esther will be getting ready for her bone marrow 'harvest'. This process involves another bone marrow biopsy to see if her bone marrow is clean. If it is clean they will remove some of the stem cells from her bone marrow to start growing her replacement bone marrow for her transplant. Thank you for you continued prayer on Esther's behalf. We trust you all will have had an enjoyable Thanksgiving.

In Christ
Adam and Jennifer Travis - India

When you talk about harvesting the bone marrow and growing replacement, it is an absolutely mind boggling thought. Praise the Lord they can do this!
