Priesthood Meeting

As a part of a pilot program he was able to watch the General Conference Priesthood session live on the TV in his room with his sons, nephew, and two close friends of the family.  He said it was a joy to feel the Spirit of that meeting with them.  Jacob Stark, one of his former missionaries, was the one who made this happen because he is a part of this pilot group.

April 2nd

The result of his bone marrow biopsy showed 5% leukemia cells.  At 5% or less they will do a bone marrow transplant but they wanted to try to get it to 0% before they do the transplant.  So he will undergo another chemo treatment when he is stronger.
