Friday, May 13th

Well, not much to report today.  That is a good thing.  A very good thing.  Caleb still isn’t feeling the best.  My patience was running low this morning with the bellyaching.  No pun intended.  Like I said last night, he isn’t a very good sick kid.  So, I ended up bringing him into town to the doctors to rule out anything serious.  Thankfully it wasn’t, which I suspected, but the crying was too much!  Just some type of virus in his guts, which I guess is going around, so we’ll have to be extra careful to do really good hand-washing because of Jacob.  I feel bad for the poor little guy because I know he’s in extreme pain, but WOW!  🙂  I’m telling ya, God is certainly testing me.  I hope I pass!  🙂

Jacob did pretty good today.  I could tell he got better and better as the day went on.  Stronger and eating a little bit more.   He seemed pretty happy and was cracking  jokes.  The Jacob we all know and love.  A couple of his good friends called him today after school.  That certainly boosted his spirits.   We watched America’s Funniest Home Videos tonight and that certainly got him laughing – his favorite show!  Anyone that has ever watched that show with Jacob before, knows that it’s funnier listening to Jacob crack up than the actual videos.   Good therapy for all of us!  🙂

Ken’s last day of work was today – he took next week off so we could have some good family bonding time.  Can’t wait!  We probably won’t do much or go anywhere, but that’ll be the best.  Just relaxing at my home. 

Please continue to pray for Jacob.   Please pray that his blood counts are good on Monday.  If they are, he will have chemo in Marquette.  It will be administered quickly, so we can enjoy the rest of the day and hopefully he won’t feel too bad afterwards with minimal side effects.   Also, please continue to pray for Caleb’s healing.  They want to see their friends so bad and I don’t feel right about that until he’s better.  I would hate for anyone else to get sick.


P.S.  Happy Birthday Aunt Kim!

    Hi Jacob! Remember me? I saw you at the hospital several weeks ago. And now I just read over what has been happening with you. You are being so brave!! I know how nasty chemo can make you feel, but you are doing so well and staying strong. Soon it will be done and you will feel normal again. We’re coming up to camp (UPBC) just for a few days in June so I’m going to see if you are around and maybe we can stop in to see you. I’m praying for you, buddy!! God’s taking care of you and has you right in his hands and will bring you through this time.

    I am so glad you made it home okay and that Ken has the week off to spend with you. Enjoy the time together. I am glad to see Jacob is laughing. A friend of mine was just telling me about a service she saw on where Joel Osteen was talking about how laughter was medically proven to heal people. I remember seeing studies on this as well, so when our parents always said laughter is the right medicine, it really is:) Hang in there and I continue to pray for you all and I pray Caleb will now get healthy as well. Erin I will give you a call when you come back down and maybe we can get together next week or weekend if you don’t have too much on your plate. We love you. God bless you. Love, Stacy
