David's Transfusion Update

David's 1st antibody blood transfusion went smoothly this evening. It took a little over an hour to infuse, and David did great - no adverse reactions or side effects! We are praising the Lord that it went so smoothly.

We are also grateful for all of the prayers of friends and families and the encouraging notes and phone calls and for those who are providing meals for us as we get used to the whole transfusion process. This whole ordeal has not been easy for us. We are thankful that David is such a tough and brave kid. He definitely makes an unhappy situation a little easier to handle since he's such a trooper.

David's next transfusion will be on Thursday at 4 p.m.
