Good Counts and Old Pics

I took Cash to Children's today for a chemo push and to find out if his counts have risen.  If his counts remained low, we would have to continue the antibiotics until they were above critical level.  Thankfully, his counts were great today, in fact his white blood cells and ANC's were way up!  So my nursing duties have been lessened for a while...We are hoping this next week is quiet and if his counts stay up we'll start the 3rd round of chemo next Saturday.

The help we've received over the past few weeks has been incredible.  Today, David A (Andre's Carpet Cleaning) came and cleaned our carpets and couch and they look amazing.  Many others have stopped by to clean the house, take care of Cash when Wendi and I are working, and much much more.  We would not be able to do this without the wonderful help we've received and we are very appreciative!

Wendi and I were digging through pictures of Cash (many courtesy thesnapsisters) from the early days and Randy forwarded me a pic from Crescent Bar - here are a few from when Cash was younger.  You'll notice many include big brother Jack either hugging or kissing Cash - they are so great together and we couldn't imagine our lives without either of these boys that God has blessed us with.

We feel tremendously blessed "...And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28).  Thank you for your continued prayers and support!


  1. Wow, those "snap sisters" take some great pics! Bro. Jack, Romans 8:28 is my signature scripture--such a great reminder of God's ability to take our ashes and turn them into beauty for His glory.

  2. So glad to hear you have so much support, it makes this hard road that much more bearable. We continue to think about and pray for Cash and your whole family every day. Please let us know if there is anything we can do!

  3. Great news about the blood counts--and the pictures are so beautiful! Hope to see you all soon.

  4. I love Romans 8:28--what a wonderful verse to think about--for all of us. I just adore these photos, especially how loving Jack Jr. is to his little bro. Hugs to you all. I wish I could do more to help you!!!!! Will be bringing you dinner during your next Children's stay. Please let me know when. Love, Sarah
