I've updated some of the new pictures on the side of the blog (look to the right), as well as posted some new ones here. Happy Four Months and first Memorial Day, Ethan! Oh, and since all the pics I normally post are of his adorable smile, I thought I'd share one of his "not so happy" moments as well! I'm quite confident he had enough of all the camera flashing over the past couple of days.
Be in prayer for his spleen to shrink and for blood counts to stabilize as we go back for another outpatient visit tomorrow (Tuesday). His spleen is a little bit larger than it has been over the past couple of weeks and he needed more blood transfusions this time around at home than he did the last time. I'm hoping to talk with the doctor tomorrow about whether or not this last round of chemo was as effective as the first time (we used a weaker dose this last time). Regardless, we will be re-admitted on Thursday for another session of chemo treatments. Be in prayer that wisdom is given to us and the doctors as we discuss the plan of action this time around.
Big Hugs to you all.
p.s. - Please be in prayer for baby Lydia (see bottom right of my blog for her website link). She is currently undergoing a bone marrow transplant and her mom updates the site with prayer requests as they come up. She has infant leukemia and is only about 8 months old, I think. As I read her website (updated by her mom, Liz), I know that we will soon be in her shoes.
