Guess what??? We’re in Green Bay again and what does that mean? JACOB’S LAST WEEK OF TREATMENT!!! WOOHOO!!! Yes, we’re just a little bit excited. Can you tell? Jacob is soooo excited! He has brought it up several times over the last few days and practically bounces off the walls when he talks about it. 🙂 We are excited too, of course. I’m so glad it’s just about over. I am so tired!! So very very tired! Mentally and physically. I can’t wait to have a good nights sleep. 🙂
We had a good time at home, of course. I hurt my back digging flowers right after we got home, so I didn’t get much done. Was hoping to work out in the yard lots, but that didn’t happen. I guess that’s God’s way of telling me to not go by my plans because He has plans of His own. 🙂 So after several chiropractor appointments from 2 different chiropractors, I finally feel better. Not 100%, but better. The worst part is, sitting causes the worst pain. Guess what I’m doing a lot of this week? Ugh!!
Anyway, last week, my brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece came up for the week for a visit. It was so good seeing them! We had just seen them about a month ago at my Mom and Dads, but that was just for one day. This time we really got to enjoy their company and of course love on the kids, Brady and Paige. Jacob and Caleb love them and enjoyed playing with them. They’re 1 and 3, so I enjoyed having little ones around the house.
So now we’re to this week…….. Now only 4 days of chemo left! Caleb is with us of course and Ken is coming down to meet us on Friday for a big fishing trip on Saturday with “Take ‘Em Outdoors”. The organization that took Jacob turkey hunting back in April. We will be walleye fishing with pros and semi-pros. After, they will be serving lunch and will have an afternoon of fun. We’re really looking forward to it. What a great way to end chemo and celebrate with a day of fun!
More good news, Jacob will have scans again in a few weeks and will need his port taken out. His docs down in Milwaukee at CHOW said originally that they would want to see him for future scans and checkups. We were really hoping we could do all of those appointments in Green Bay for the shorter drive. So, I did a little begging, and his main doctor at CHOW agreed that Jacob could do all future appointments and scans in Green Bay and we would only need to head down if there were any concerns. PRAISE GOD!!! That is a major blessing, especially with less driving time and with the gas prices…….
Please continue to keep Jacob in your prayers! These kids who go through this treatment need your continued prayers for years and years. Not just through treatment. We appreciate your prayers so much! Can you please continue to pray for Julia, Avery and Uzias? They’re all having a rough time right now with that “C” monster coming back. Please pray for a miracle to happen in their lives.
