I wanted to do two posts today, though there is no news to update you with to speak of. Continue to pray over the requests. Really pray for James' comfort. At times he seems to grow uncomfortable with the line in his chest. His tender little skin is chafing under his arms, perhaps the result of broken capillaries associated with his low platelet count. There are definitely times when James is himself, laughing and smiling, waving and babbling, playing on his clorox wiped playmat or just enjoying time with the few visitors he is allowed. He particularly enjoyed sitting with Granny and Grandad having his hair brushed, and laughing at his Uncle Chris.
As you can see, our precious angel grows tired and is able to get some rest. Pray for many good night's of rest for the three of them. Rest is essential for James' little body as well as for Joy and Greg as it makes all the difference in the way they feel.
Also continue to pray for a good report from the spinal tap. Preliminarily, without the pathology report, the doctors are saying they found one white blood cell in the tap. The pathology report will tell more specifically what kind of cell it is. They have been informed that less than 5 cells is a good sign. Lastly, just f.y.i., they are now just working on narrowing down the subtype of A.L.L. which is the confirmed type of Leukemia that James has.
