A Rough Couple of Nights

First of all, let me begin by saying we need your prayers tonight. James goes in for blood draws starting at 7am and has his bone marrow and lumbar puncture procedures around 9:30am. As a result of that, he can't have anything to eat or drink after midnight tonight. We are very thankful we have 3 more doses of the steriods for this phase of treatment. Let me say that with each day the side effects have intensified. The last couple of nights he has had a total of about 6 hours of sleep in a 48 hour period. His Nana graciously has taken the brunt of this and let Greg and me sleep. The one thing that has soothed him in the middle of the night is his milk and cheetoes. Yes, at 3am in the morning he is up in his chair snacking on cheetoes and drinking milk. Needless to say, tonight we will have a battle on our hands.

Some prayer requests we have are
1. Pray that tonight would go as smoothly as it can.
2. Pray that the steriods don't take long to leave his system.
3. Pray for his procedures tomorrow-that they take him on time and they go well.
4. Pray for me and baby Adrianne-we have tentatively scheduled her induction for August 27th.

Once again thank you for the support you have given us through meals, finances, and most of all prayer!

We are praying for you all. Hope all goes just as we have asked God for it to go. Remember that the Almighty will NOT gove us more than we can handle. Keep your chins up and try to keep the eyelids open. We love you all.

Just wanted to say hello to everyone and wish you the best. You all are in my thoughts everyday. Joy, tell your mom I am checking in on Rebekah regularly.

James is obviously a little fighter. He has that Lambert genetic make-up, so he doesn't have a choice.

You have so many people who are thinking of you and love you very much. Take care of each other.
