First of all, Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support! This would be impossible to bear without your many kindnesses.

Tonite, Mark is more "perky" than I've seen him for days. We had a "field trip" to Intermountan Medical Center for a PET scan.

The report was that STILL a mass cannot be found! Only a train of Lymph nodes lit up on the scan on his neck. Apparently not "hot" enough to impress the Doc's.

So Sat. morning he will undergo a bone marrow biopsy to continue the "fishing expedition"!

In otherwords, the diagnosis of Burkitt's lymphoma has been deleted from his list. He returns to the "unsolved mystery" club.

He continues to maintain his stellar courage and will to fight. An example to all of us!

As we got back in the transport vehicle to return back to Primary"s, He informed the driver that "Primary'S" had burned down and that he should just drive us home instead!

Tonite each time his nurse enters the room, he pretends to have a seizure by shaking and gagging. When she reacts with shock, he gets a little grin of accomplishment!!!

I realize the high probability that his improved status today is a direct result of blessings upon him that have been pleaded for by all of you. And I send my warmest thanks and wishes for love and happiness in each of your families.

Goodnite, Marks mom
