Update on the Caravan...

Today was one of those days that started at the hospital early and ended late...On Tuesdays after treatment we go to the main hospital to meet with Cash's oncologist.  Last week his counts were just above the levels required for a transfusion - this morning we found out he needed one today at 1:00.  In between appointments we ran a few errands and Cash received a transfusion from 1:00 until about 5:00.

His energy level was definitely up after the transfusion and he played with Jack Jr. until bedtime.  Speaking of Jack Jr., he has been the best thing for Cash the past few weeks.  Today again he entertained him and kept him busy in spite of the long day...

Wendi kept us posted today with their progress and by the time of this email they are nearing Wichita, Kansas!  She just texted me and said they are 14 hours away and are finally stopping for the night (there are thunderstorms nearing Wichita).  I'm thankful they finally stopped and thankful that God has protected them throughout a near 30-hour drive.  I'll continue to pray for safe travels and hopefully tomorrow we'll all be together once again as a family for the first time in nearly 5 weeks.

Thank you Roger and Joann for driving Wendi and Kingston to Houston - what an amazing blessing and thank you to all for your support and prayers!!!
