Bone Marrow test result

Ah Jon bone marrow test result was made known to us yesterday. His chromosome test was not carried out because the courier service has failed to deliver the marrow sample on time and the cells arrived dead. Hence the Philadelphia chromosome test cannot be carried out.
So for the time being, the specialist think that he is suffering from CML.

CML is diagnosed by detecting the Philadelphia chromosome. This characteristic chromosomal abnormality can be detected by routine cytogenetics, by fluorescent in situ hybridization, or by PCR for the bcr-abl fusion gene.
In Ah Jon's case, only BCR-ABL test was carried out and found to be positive. This is a type of DNA test which does not require live cell.

I will bring him to Kuching on 18th April and will discuss with the specialist regarding the treatment management. On the same day, we will travel to KL and see another specialist at Subang Medical Centre for a second opinion on 20th April.
Please pray for divine healing for him.

Jon, this is the best time to learn how to pray, trust and build your faith. Remember, swimming is not learnt in the classroom. The rougher the sea, the stronger you will become...may this be an opportunity to prepare yourself to face all the challenges in life.

Praying for you always and be assured that you will be well and healthy because I know the power of God.

I hope your son is in no pain or that he overcomes it.

I feel angry at the courier service. Are the oblivious to the importance of what they do?

FM Luder: Ah Jon is now on medication. He is suffering from discomfort due to the side effect. Hope that he will overcome them.

The courier service disappointed me. They wasted my money and time! We paid premium and I expect them to perform at their best and not delaying it.
