Some more pictures of our daily activities. Thanks to all of you who are still praying for us.
I am getting close to being done with my fourth cycle of chemotherapy and it still seems like every cycle is getting more difficult. This time, I even broke out in hives and had to go to the ER in the middle of the night, because I wasn’t sure if what was happening would end up being serious or not. We decided to play it safe and go in, even though that meant leaving the boys home alone at night. Turns out this medication that I have to take for two weeks straight can cause a reaction like that and I can just take some antihistamines for it. Would’ve been nice to know before spending three hours at the hospital. Oh well, better safe than sorry.
We have also started with homeschooling again and I’m trying my best to help out. I’m teaching Emery his science course and will be teaching Owen language arts once we start with that. It’s pretty neat to do a science course that acknowledges God as the creator.
Summer seems to be winding down these last few days, and I’m OK with that. I’ve had a very nice break from active treatment again for the month of August and I’m scheduled to begin round 4 this week. My white blood cells were “trending downward” again so they delayed me a few days again. I go in tomorrow morning to check my levels and if all is good, then they will send me home with my next round of medication.
