A Victorious Day!

We set out this Sunday for the second try at going to church and we were victorious. James did much better in his class. All the volunteers and staff were there to make us feel welcomed and me feel comfortable. I have to admit I was a little distracted thinking that the pager was going to go off. All my anxiety aside, he did great. He was glad to see us when we picked him up.

This week is a big week. We head to the clinic early for blood counts before his lumbar puncture. He will receive chemo during his lumbar puncture, chemo through his port, and he will start steroids. He will also have the oral chemo he takes nightly and this week an oral antibiotic(to completely clear the ear infection). Thank you so much for your prayers concerning the antibiotic. He is taking it like a champ! We will covet your prayers as we go into this week and especially for Wednesday. Those days always start hard because he can't have anything to eat or drink.

Thanks again for cheering us on as we make sense of our days and learn to live with leukemia as normally as we can. Thanks for your prayers!

I am so glad that you were able to go to church...just remember when he was a baby and you were nervous about him making it through church...it will get easier. I am praying for you this week!
