I'm proud of my big brother

Aleks did just fine today with his surgery.  He sure didn't like not being able to eat or drink until after his surgery.  Now he kinda understands what I get to do every day during radiation...I was just wondering why he didn't get a central line too.  Oh well...Praise the Lord!  Aleks is home resting...thank you for praying for him...please continue to pray for my ANC level.  Thanks!

Yet another call for prayer warriors...

Jesus...I need help.  My ANC is going down and that isn't good when I need to qualify for the Stem Cell Transplant, but You already know that.  I know that You are the Great Physician and are able to heal me in an instant.  I know that You have a plan and purpose for where you are taking me.  Please cause my body to recover from what ever is making my ANC to go down.  Help me.  Please comfort and encourage our hearts.  Praise You Jesus! 

Wow...8 days of radiation done!!

Here we are 8 days down and just 4 more to go.  Things are ok for the most part with the radiation.  I still don't like getting up so early and not being able to eat or drink...but this phase is almost over.  Next week I am scheduled to begin Stem Cell Transplant.  I get admitted on October 8th.  I am glad they save this one until last because it is going to be REALLY tough!!!!!!   Pray that God would continue His healing work in my body and He continues to protect all my vital organs.  Pray for His strength to endure this treatment and for Mommy and Daddy as they walk through this with me.  It will be HARD!

Other news...Aleks goes in tomorrow for surgery.  He needs his adenoids out.  He is a bit frightened...I told him I sure understand...but God will help him just like He does for me!!  Chloe needs a tooth extracted...Praise God it is only a tooth...but everything needs to be done before I go into the hospital next week.  CRAZY!!  Mommy needs much prayer support.  She has a TON of pressures for this next week but GOD is bigger than that TON!!!!  He is sustaining her and she praises His Name for the blessing!!  Praise the Lord!  OK...gotta jet...My Littlest Pony's are waiting on me to play!

4 days of radiation ... done

I am 1/3 of the way through my radiation treatment.  The hardest part of this phase is getting up VERY early, no eating or drinking be fore my treatment, and then waking up from the anesthesia.  Sometimes I am really cranky but other times I am just as happy as can be!  Mommy gets a bit tired too...she gets up earlier than me and I am sure she goes to sleep much later in the evening than I do as well.  She ROCKS!!

Please pray for my body to handle the radiation well.  So far it is ok but the effects accumulate. Please, please remember my stem cell transplant and begin praying for protection, comfort  and strength for that "fight."  If things continue on schedule I could be in there the latter part of the first week of October.  Thank you for your prayers!!!
