He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

The Difference of a Few Days

So Joshua's white blood cell count was only 190 this past Thursday. Today it was over 187,000. It's amazing how his little body can recover. I only wish my body would recover that fast. His platelets are still on the low side but he is making them himself and they should increase over the next few days. Just in time for a chemo admission on Monday where we'll knock everything out of him again. He is just happy that we didn't have to do the "pokies" in the legs tonight. I hate to tell him that we'll start them up again next Thursday.

Adam and Noah are once again having a sleep over. I have found that it keeps the boys out of our bed so they get no arguements from me. Hey if they want to sleep on the floor every night until the teenage years, I'm fine with it. Joshua on the other hand figured things out as soon as I turned off the lights and promply headed toward Mommy and Daddy's bed. Oh well.

Check out the new slideshow to the right. Jeff had to give me a little help since all this blog stuff, or should I say technology, is out of my scope of understanding. I just want to tell it what to do and have it done. Jeff say's technology doesn't work that way. No wonder I don't like it! This site is a work in progress but I hope to keep adding improvments. Also, I put a link to get updates to the right as well. At least I think that's what it's supposed to do...
