Jacob’s MRI was great! The doctors were happy with all of Jacob’s tests and scans. His lungs look great too! Praise the Lord!!! We enjoyed our time at home, but it went by way too fast. We had a busy week and then we had to head to Milwaukee on Friday to meet with Jacob’s oncologist. We decided to stay the night and tried to make the most of being out of town and had to check out some of the local attractions. We got home late Saturday night, but had a great time just being together as a family. Thank you to the Pages for watching our Katy! We really appreciate it! We also got a surprise visit from my brother and sister-in-law yesterday. So that meant that we got to see my sweet nephew and niece that we don’t get to see very often. They stayed the night, so I was able to spend the day yesterday smooching on their sweet cheeks! Wish we would’ve had more time, but some is better than none.
Dropped Caleb off at school this morning and left from there right to Green Bay. Barely made it to Jacob’s appointment on time. Thank goodness the roads were dry. He had a 10:00 appointment and started his 7th round of chemo. He’s halfway there! Yippee! He did really good with that and also started radiation today. He will have radiation Monday thru Friday for the next 5 weeks. Please pray that he will have minimal burning and minimal radiation and damage to parts that aren’t supposed to be radiated. After radiation, we headed back up to the clinic and Jacob got a transfusion. His hemoglobin was a little low.
Tomorrow morning we will be heading back to the clinic at 8:30 for chemo and radiation again at 1:00. Friday will be an earlier schedule, so we should be back home around 4:00 to spend the weekend with Caleb and Ken. I hope it goes by quick, because I am not a fan of motel living. 🙂 Although it’ll probably be a lot better than the hospital and a lot better sleeping too! 🙂
We are so thankful for all of your prayers! God bless you all!
