Not a whole lot to write today. Jacob had chemo today at 9:00 and 10:00. Afterwards, they gave him a blood transfusion. Not that he needed one, but they just did it as a precaution. Knowing that his counts would go down even more over the next several days. It was a really good day though. Our friends Carisa, Lindsay and Sam showed up at about 10:00. It was so good seeing them. They were able to stay for the whole day until we left the hospital. It’s amazing how fast the day goes by when you have friends to talk to, instead of being bored out of my mind sitting in a hospital room with Jacob zoning in front of the t.v.. Well, around 11:00, my sister Liz showed up and stayed for a couple hours. It was so nice having company. I loved it!
Jacob was in pretty good spirits all day. Being somewhat silly! Certainly not the kid that he normally is on the last day of a 5-day run of chemo. Unbelievable! He never got sick once. He looked pretty tired, but didn’t get sick. I couldn’t believe it! I mean, I did a lot of praying this week that he wouldn’t be, but wow! I really don’t know why I’m surprised! God is good! Oh, and I’m sure a lot of you prayed too, so thank you!
We left the hospital around 6:00 and headed back to Rachel’s. It was so good seeing Caleb. Just wish we were with Ken. That won’t be for a couple more weeks though, since Jacob will have his scans and we’ll have to wait until they’re over. Hopefully time will go by fast. 🙂 We miss him so much!!! Anyway, Jacob ate dinner and felt fine. The boys headed outside to play “super heroes” and I told him to not overdo it cuz I didn’t want him to get sick. He said “Mom, I feel great!”. I don’t know why I was worrying, God is in control!
Please continue to keep us in your prayers! We still have a long road ahead of us and nothing works like the power of prayer!!!
