6 clinic days left again!!


Well, due to holidays and other changes that are made in scheduling from the clinic world, it looks like I need to change the number of visits left...long story short, we NOW have 6 more clinic days to go!!!

Yeah....we are so excited! He will go in Dec., Jan., Feb., Mar., Apr., then finally in May!!!

Check out the countdown over there folks!!!

Here was last clinic labs:
WBC 2000
ANC 1150
HGB 11.6
PLT 160,000

Today's:
wbc 2900 up
anc 1880 up
hgb 11.7
plt 146,00

So you can see how it is staying pretty steady now with some mild ups and downs so they kept everything the same with no in between labs. NO med changes. I feel like we are really flowing a bit now.
Braveheart is feeling ok most of the time now. He gets tired, takes naps, especially achy after clinic day, but overall, seems much better now.

Prayer:
I have a really bad cold so prayer for me to heal and B to stay clear of it would be appreciated. In fact, everyone seems to be getting something here now. Ugh.

Can you believe that thanksgiving is nearly here already?? WOW. We have so much to be thankful for at our house. Even though life can bring so many different challenges to every one's household, it is good to sit and reflect on what we are truly thankful for.

A son who is alive and responding well to treatment.
Other children who are healthy.
A family, united.
A loving marriage. (a good and cute man) :)) (WE JUST HAD 18 YEARS!!!!)
A mom that is the best mom a girl could have (awesome grandma) and such a great help to us. We keep thanking God for her continually.
Grandparents that come sit with kids staying home and offer rides and love us. (thanks Barb, Dick, GG)
Those special friends that God gives us.
Extended family, friends and church families, brothers and sisters in Christ.
An imperfect, warm, dry, comfortable home.
Being laid off (yes, thank you Lord) and getting back to work..Praise God!
YOU ALL that keep in touch here and pray for us, we thank YOU!!!

I for one am thankful for a Savior, named Jesus Christ, who died on a cross to take the punishment for (our or insert you own name here) own sins and who's forgiveness is for all, absolute and forever when you simply receive His gift of salvation.

Romans
6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

john 1:12But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

Romans 10:13for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."

What are you thankful for?

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!! Hope you all have a great, relaxing week.

Greetings from England in the name of Jesus. I just found your blog today, and cried as I read it and felt I had to pray for you all there and then. Our daughter Abby had cancer when she was 12, and was miraculously healed. She is now 21! It was a very powerful time for us, so I know what you're going through. I will be praying for you often, and visiting your wonderful blog, too.
Love in Him

Praising God for your thankfulness! I don't even pretend to understand what you are going through but I am so blessed to be a minute part of it by praying in His name. Blessing to you sister!

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

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.
