January 2, 2014

Happy New Year everyone! 2014 is starting out to be a fabulous year. The results from Casey's bone marrow aspiration and biopsy showed he is fully engrafted, 100% Stevie, with no leukemia or any disease. His blood counts are climbing without the help of neupogen and he is feeling good. He gets daily IV infusions of magnesium and anti fungal medicines and daily shots for his blood clot, which we can do at home. We go into the hospital on Mondays and Thursdays for check ups. Yesterday we had our traditional pork and saurkraut and then we walked the whole way around Reliant Stadium (Bill O'Brien's new home)which is right across the street from the apartment.
Gary will be going home tomorrow to snow, cold weather and crazy puppies. I get to enjoy another week of 60 degree weather.


  1. There could be no better news! So overjoyed for you all! But are there going to be two Stevies?

  2. So happy! Yeah Casey! There can never be enough Stevies in this world. Just one burning question - how is Gary's banana tree?

  3. What wonderful news! Thank you, Lord!!

    And how lucky that you got to miss the worst of our bitter PA weather!
