countdown to a cure

Do you see that slice? That's my brave little boy whacking that cancer out of his body everyday (with God's help of coarse)!! He is fighting hard even when you don't see it. Sometimes you see him so energetic you wouldn't even know how tired he gets sometimes. He amazes me continually with his trust in the Lord, his steadfastness, his upbeat attitude. What a kid.

Here he is having a more tired moment. These are the moments when your heart just longs to climb right inside his body with a magic cancer magnet and just yank out all those bad cells forever.

Thanks for all your continual prayers. I am limiting my carepage updates to clinic visits or special events, but here I may update more daily stuff now.

Today we had to go get blood drawn here in town. For those of you who don't know it, we are continually checking his blood and still trying to adjust his chemo drug levels. He his tiring of weekly draws. The lab folks know us all too well. Last week his levels finally went up nicely and so his chemo was increased. He is already feeling the increased tiredness from that but he is doing well. Today the levels were mostly unchanged so they agreed to let him wait 2 weeks for clinic day before needing labs. Yeah! At clinic, they will draw from his chest port so he will get 3 or 4 weeks worth of arm breaks!
Also, check out the new countdown gadget on my side bar at the top and help us countdown to a cure until next May!!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
