I'm also ecstatic to hear this good news for the entire family. I hear the road to recovery is still a tough one but after what he's already been through, I know the little guy can pull through.

Also, I hope his Aunt is doing well. What an amazing gift she gave to her nephew that will ultimately save his life.
