update on Hawk Maier

Last night we went over to the Maier family house to deliver supper for them. Remember in my post from earlier this month the prognosis had been pretty grim for little Hawk (our 3 year old from Faith who has been battling Leukemia). Read these to catch up:

Well folks...the miracles and good news continue to bring amazement. His test numbers keep coming back with massive improvement from the chemo and his lungs seem to be returning to strength. Can you believe that the doctors are now talking about doing the bone marrow transplant again? And SOON!

Hawk's father Doug writes: If there are no signs of leukemia (on next week's test), they may try to go ahead with a second bone marrow transplant which could happen as soon as mid- to late-August. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was expecting to have his funeral by then. I can't tell you how happy we are to know that Hawk still has a chance. It's amazing what prayers can do."

We continue to believe and pray hard that "He who started a good work will be faithful to complete it!"
