Round 8

Round 8 went well. Jackson was in a good mood. He lost a little weight, his blood pressure was fine and his counts are 1000. We had some concerns about his platelets being low because he bled some this week and bruised a ton, but the numbers were great. As always, he was a champ about getting his port accessed and getting his treatment.

{Drumming on the way there}

{Sweet baby brother}

{Making a mess!}

{Those are Buzz Lightyear socks in his pocket...he woke up asking for them}

{Maybe he has a future in medicine}

{Singing Daddy's version of Old McDonald Had a Farm}

{A sucker and a dinosaur for being so brave}

{His name is Dinosaur!}

{Wrestling the alligator on the way out}

When we got home...

{We raced cars}

{We played outside}

{We did laundry}

We all had a rough week emotionally. This is hard and getting harder. Although we are getting used to it, it's not getting any easier. I am hopeful and expectant that God will show us what He wants us to do with this, because I know it must all be for a reason.

We appreciate your prayers and thoughts so much, so please keep them coming! Knowing that we have support on this journey is so important.

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart because I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

Faithful and fighting,



  1. I am sending you prayers always. I wish there was something I could say that would make this easier or make sense...I just don't know what that would be. Know that you are loved by so many people and we are here to help. Keep your chin up...Love and hugs..

  2. Sending you so much love and hoping that light at the end of your tunnel is glowing so brightly for you that you are surrounded with all its warmth! XXOO

  3. I'm continuing to pray for Jackson and your family!!
    May the Lord Bless and Keep You!
