A procedure to remove stem cells is being done today on my close relative,22 year old Dov Nechemiah Hakohein ben Rochel Chaya Sora. It literally can mean life and death for him, as his Stage 4 cancer which is a very rare one, potentially can be halted and the stem cells are crucial to regrowing healthy bone marrow. The hospital is having trouble drawing blood on him, and the next hour is especially crucial. Please, PLEASE, stop what you are doing and take a moment to say a kapitel Tehillim for him ANY kapitel. Tizku l’mitzvos, and may none of you who are reading this ever need someone to daven likewise, for you or for your family members.July 1, 2013 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #964383
I need to amend one thing that I wrote. It is not drawing blood that is a problem, it is getting blood flow through his line. I misspoke.July 1, 2013 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #964384sharpMember
Oy. Hope it will be successful. May he have a Refuah Sheleimah.July 1, 2013 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #964385playtimeMember

Oh, I stuck “complete” in there. Lol. Can the mods take it out? SorryJuly 2, 2013 12:45 am at 12:45 am #964388
Thank you all for your kind wishes. He had apheresis today, and there was a serious glitch. At first, when they put the line in, they could not get any blood flow. It happens once in a Yoveil, and his mazel, it happened to him. There was another major glitch erev Shabbos when he was getting medication delivered that is given to increase the production of one’s stem cells. It was delivered VERY late, and not refrigerated by the truck, as per the instructions. Until the doctor was reached and able to ascertain that the medication was viable and safe to use, it was very frightening. This is their one shot to retrieve the stem cells, as I understand it.
B”H in the end, the medication was deemed safe to be used, and he was given blood thinners which eventually enabled the blood to flow through the line so they could complete the procedure (several hours’ process). We won’t know until later, if it was successful. But we are hopeful.
Tefilos are very powerful tools for a refuah shelaima. My family believes that with all our hearts. But since we don’t know if our own zechyos are sufficient to merit the bracha, we therefore turn to all who can say tehillim or daven for him, because your collective zechuyos can ONLY help and already have. Thank you on behalf of the entire Mishpacha.July 8, 2013 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #964389HealthParticipant
