Dylan B - Son of Matt and Wendy........
Here is life, hope and a brand new baby soul bringing joy to his very happy parents. Despite Matt having CML and being on Gleevec, Dylan arrived on the 27th December 2009, a couple of days early, perfectly healthy and absolutely beautiful...... :) See? It looks as if he is already calling the shots and telling the world what to do - just look at that little finger!
Congratulations Matt and Wendy.... what a beautiful little son you have. Read Matt's CML blog here.. http://hatefulblood.blogspot.com/.
The birth of their little boy is such positive news, not only for them, but for the CML community. These babies are commonly referred to as "Gleevec Babies" - Gleevec being the cml medication Matt uses to keep his leukemia at bay. Each time I read about a baby born while dad is on Gleevec, it makes me smile just a little wider. By the time Steven and Laura are ready to start a family, I know I will worry just that little less.
A big thanks to Matt and Wendy for sharing their news with us all........
love and light
