Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our family blog. This may be your first visit here, or you may be a friend from across the globe, or family that we have just seen. Who ever you may be, thanks for taking the time to read about our little family, and all we are learning on this adventure the Lord has called us to live! Here you will find, the random thoughts, funny stories, prayer requests, and the journey our family and Jack is on with his battle with Leukemia.


Last night around 8 pm, our oncologist who is head of our case called to tell us the results of Jack's bone marrow biopsy. She said it was good news and better than they could have hoped. They had been hoping to find less than 5% leukemic cells and when they did the test they found less than 1%! God is so good, and we are just amazed at his intimate care of our son.

She was so happy with how he has been responding to chemo, and we are thrilled to hear this report! We are so grateful for the many many prayers lifted up on our sons behalf and we have no doubt that God is hearing and answering those prayers. Thank you dear friends.

Something we were not expecting to happen, the nausea and vomiting has set in. Poor little buddy, last night he threw up 3 times over the course of the night and 1 time today. He sat around on the couch all day, just not feeling well and being pretty miserable. We were not expecting this, as he did not get sick at all with the first round of chemo he received while in the hospital.

We are praying this does not continue for too long, as the risk for him to become dehydrated would send us back to the hospital. He was pretty miserable today, so we are praying he be restored soon, and that the anti-nausea medicine we are giving him will take effect soon. Although, I think Jordan and I are quickly becoming pro's at throw-up clean up. Not something I really wanted to become proficient at!

Sweet boy has wanted nothing but mac n' cheese too. We should keep track of how many boxes he consumes this next month! Oh how we look forward to out boy feeling better soon.

Thank you again for the continued prayers. I will try to post some pictures tomorrow.

Shared Jack's trial at homegroup Friday night in Raleigh, so you have some more folks praying for you now. So enjoyed Grandpa preaching on "why we sing" tonight. Since Celebrations stopped, we are in Kauflin withdrawals!
