4 out of 5

I haven't blogged recently, mainly because Cash spent Friday, Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday in the hospital.  The only 'added' day was yesterday, it was determined Monday that he needed blood and platelets which was done yesterday.  On Sunday Cash had a very lethargic day - my parents and Wendi's parents came over for the day and it was obvious he was in need of a boost.  By yesterday after receiving blood and platelets he perked up significantly and the color came back into his cheeks.

Here are some pictures from the past few days.  On Monday, Bob, Dillon, and Jack Jr. stayed with us at the hospital, helping to entertain Cash:

Yesterday, my mom took shifts with Wendi at the hospital and Joann (she and Roger drove Wendi to Houston) took care of Kingston.  It was the first time she'd seen him in a while and we're so thankful she could help out.

In addition yesterday, Coleson was at Children's for a series of tests with Ryan and Sara - Coleson made Cash smile and laugh and we're so glad they stopped by (Praise God that Coleson's scans are clear!!!).

I also took a short video of Cash playing with his brothers at home.  The youtube video doesn't quite fit into the blog, however if you'd like to see it click here.

Nearly 40 hours in the hospital since last Friday has taken its toll - last night Jack Jr spiked a fever of 103.2 but thankfully it's back within normal range.  We're trying to teach him what 'quarantined' means because we don't want Cash or Kingston to get what he has.  He's struggling with that as he loves to shower his brother with kisses and hugs but we're staying on top of it and keep reminding him...

We're thankful to be back home and Cash is in good spirits so we'll simply enjoy today and not worry about tomorrow since it's been promised by God that He's taking care of it.  The sun is out so the kids will play outside all day and we'll keep hoping and praying for a miracle.

Thank you for your support and prayers and have a blessed rest-of-the-week.
