Today was very interesting - Cash's stem cells were drawn from his blood using an apheresis machine. I can't begin to describe it so I took a picture:
We were waiting to see if they'd let us go home but the surgeons determined because of the challenges he'd had with bleeding, we would have to stay another night. We made good use of the time though, playing Yahtzee and Mancala with Coleson B. He's a very strong and bright young man and didn't believe all of my stories for a second. Here is Cash and Coleson playing Yahtzee:
Wendi's parents spent the entire day doing yardwork at our house (We can't wait to see it!) and then came for dinner. Mom read Cash stories (he loves books):
Tomorrow we'll head home and we'll have another week of appointments and blood draws, etc., then return next Saturday for the second round of chemo. It was a difficult week but before Cash went to sleep tonight he recited a bunch of words we're teaching him - he can almost say his ABC's and he's almost got his own name and the most important name down: Jesus. Thank you Jesus for a successful surgery, stem cell draw, and a great day with new friends today!
And thank you as always for your continued prayers and support!
