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.
Today is yet another treatment day at the clinic! We go in once a month for IV Chemo and blood counts. Today is also the start of Jack's monthly 5 days of steroids. The past 3 months, these visits have been harder for Jack than before, because of his new port. He has grown in fear of these visits, each time I tell him we are going to the Dr. he cries.
We love the port, as daily life is so much better than when he had his tubie, but the times when it has to be accessed is really scary for him. We put numbing cream on it, so I do not think he is feeling much pain when they put the needle in it. I just think he is scared. Who wouldn't be, when your mommy has to restrain your arms legs, and head and a nurse is coming at you with a giant needle?
As soon as the process begins, he starts crying, begging me to stop holding his hands and let go of him. So, as you can imagine, I really do not like these times. So please pray for my little buddy today. We go in at 11 am and hopefully he will have his port accessed soon after that. And pray for grace for the next week of steroids and its awful havoc it wreaks on his body.
Another month down, only 36 more to go! Thanks for praying!
