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.

.happy counts.

Just got his counts for today. I was expecting them to hit rock bottom. Zero. But happy news for today, his ANC went all the way up to 100!! Praise God! He had a blood transfusion yesterday, and then slept the rest of the day away. We are trying to space out his Morphine dose a little bit today, to see how he is really feeling and to see if less helps with the constipation. But if he is in any pain again, we can up the dose again. We are spacing it from every 2 hours, to last night it was every 3, and today we are going to try for every 4 hours. We will see how he is doing with that for now.

I did get a smile or two out of him yesterday, which was the sweetest moments of the day. I hope today is a much better day. I am staying with him today and sleeping there tonight, so I will not be able to update much till tomorrow. We still have a long way to go to complete recovery, BUT we are finally headed in the right direction. Keep praying for our little guy. His mouth sores still look pretty bad. He ends up drooling a bit even when he is awake, because it hurts him to swallow.

Red Cells: 8.5
platelets: 80
ANC: 100

Psalm 30:8-11

8 To you, O LORD, I cry,
and to the Lord I plead for mercy:
9 "What profit is there in my death,
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it tell of your faithfulness?
10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me!
O LORD, be my helper!"

11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
