Please remember to include baby Ethan in your prayers.
"February 9 - Day 365 DAY +40

1st Update/1:53pm [Ben] - I know it has been awhile since I have updated, but today it suddenly became extremely neccessary. Becky is so much better at the medical terminology and medical facts than I am, plus it seems to have served as an excellent outlet for her. However today, she has 'passed me the torch'. A few hours ago, we were given some terribly discouraging news. Ethan's MRD came back with .25 percent LEUKEMIA present. Last week it was around .026 percent. In other words, it has multiplied ten times over in a matter of days. The LEUKEMIA is getting stronger. I am sure by now that you get what this is supposed to mean, so I don't plan on spelling it out for you. I refuse to type those words. From all of the prying phone calls and emails that we get, I know that some of your imagination gets the best of you when trying to figure out our circumstances here. But in all seriousness this is not a soap opera, and we are not actors. We are standing FIRM in our FAITH, and We BeLIeVe that Ethan will be HEALED! Please help fire up the prayer chain and BeLIeVe with us.

When a child is born, many say it is a miracle. When David killed Goliath, many said it was a miracle. When the Giants beat the Patriots in the Superbowl... ok, maybe that is going a little overboard. I know it may seem a little crazy that I can joke at a time like this, but here is the thing. If you BeLIeVe then share it and say it, if you don't then you are just pretending! For Ethan's sake... BeLIeVe... PRAYER WORKS!!!"
