Day 12 Update - 24NOV08


Josh is still at home with us! We went to the hospital today so Joshua could get labs done. His current white blood cell count is 185 (normal is between 5000-10,000) so we are still on major germ warfare patrol. 
 Every time Joshua gets a test or procedure done he receives a Bravery Bead at the hospital, today he got to catch up for the last 12 days. He has 26 so far. It is hard to believe that so much has happened in such a short period of time. Joshua's spirits are still good and he is always hungry, a result of the steroids he is taking. So we seem to constantly be in the kitchen :)

Hi Joshua, it's me, Hayden! I sent you something - Mrs. O'Neill will give it to you next time she sees you. Are you hungry right now? I read on your blog that you are always hungry. Take care. I miss you at school.

Hey Little Snuggle Monkey,

You keep collecting those bravery beads! What a warrior you are.

I thought boys weren't supposed to eat their parents out of house and home until their teenage years! Are you practicing?

I am so proud of you and love you tons and bushels and pecks and all those other measures. Keep up the good fight and stay strong.

Love, hugs and kisses.

ps Sneak a hug to your big beautiful brother Jarrod for me. And then sneak another one to Christian and Jamie.
