Rock Star update

Today has been a day of rest for Dave. His fever has been up and down and he has slept a lot. He received platelets and antibiotics, and he remains on fluids. We definitely see that he is a tad bit perkier this evening, but he is certainly not ready to get up and play. They are going to hold off on his last radiation until Wednesday until he has had more fluids and his temperature remains more stable. He is certainly a tough fighter and we are so proud of him.

We enjoyed a nice visit from Jonathan. He unfortunately witnessed David getting his daily GCSF shot. Those shots are stressful on us all. He has sipped a little apple juice and had a little popsicle today. He has a pretty ugly looking sore on his tongue which makes eating and drinking pretty painful. Please pray that this sore heals quickly and that his white blood cell count comes back up so we can stop these darn shots.

Today's praise song is Forever Reign and I just keep singing

My heart will sing
No other name
Jesus, Jesus

As I cradled my sick, feverish, moaning child I just sang that song over and over in his sweet ear. Thank you for the prayers and love that have carried us through this tough day. As we walk through this dark valley we just keep singing about our faithful Jesus who has been our Rock.

  1. This makes me so sad. I hate that David feels so yucky. I read your blog from Marion to feel close to you. I pray the sores get better fast, and he can eat normal and drink. Bless his sweet heart. I feel like you all are family and it hurts to know you all are going through this dark valley. I pray for comfort, healing, protection and peace!!! LOVE FR MARION
