On April 19,2017 Josiah rang the bell, signifying end-of-cancer-treatments! He has completed his chemo treatments. On May 1, Lord willing if his counts are good, he will be getting his port removed from his chest. He will continue on antibiotics for the next three months, and will go in for monthly checkups for the next year.
God is so good, and we are so thankful for His mercy towards us! Josiah has been brave throughout the past three years. The doctors and nurses were always excited to see him, and he brightened many a day with his big smile! He was so tough when it came time for his "poky" (needle) each month, and Oma(Nelly's mom) often went along and rewarded him with a stuffy!
A huge thank you to everyone who diligently prayed for Josiah. It wouldn't have been the same ending without your prayers, each and everyone of you! God promises through prayer... Thank you!
