Happy Dance!

Chemo #6:  Last week his ANC (ability to fight infection) went down to 0.  This is not good.  This means we have to give him a shot in the stomach every night...which he hates!  It burns when it goes in and for a time afterwards.  However, the shots (and prayers) helped because his counts were fabulous today 9.9!  He also gained a pound!  Who would have thought that gaining weight would be a GOOD thing!  Too bad you can't do that by proxy!  I would have had him covered for sure! ;)

Next week is another overnight stay.  They have Xbox 360's in the rooms, but only one game that's not for little kids (Need for Speed Proshift).  If anyone has any games he can borrow for the night, let us know!

It's only August and we already used up all of our Flex spending.  Well, we'll just keep paying our tithing and wait for the next miracle to show up!

On a lighter note, Zack and the boys got a short-term job to earn a little money for school and their own bills.  Zack is trying to get school registration figured out at UVU.

Mike and Spencer are trying to wrap their minds around the fact that school will start for them next week!  Come to think of it, so am I!  New Schedule!

Dave is still doing his same old thing.  I still try to play racquetball when I can.  I'm daring to get back on an exercise program with my niece, Jessica.

Thanks for your continued prayers and thoughtfulness!

Today is a good day!  Let's celebrate!
