Day 14 Update - 26NOV08

Jarrod and Josh having fun.
Josh, Jarrod, and Renee went to the hospital this morning for Josh to get his labs done at 9:00. Joshua's white cell count is now 0 (you read right, zero) and his platelets were low so he need another blood transfusion. Unfortunately the blood bank did not have his type in stock so Renee and the kids had to wait a couple of hours until they could get it from another location. Long story short, they got home around 5:30 p.m.. Long boring day for all involved . Josh  is doing fine otherwise, we of course are now beyond paranoid about germs from the outside world. We will keep our fingers crossed that Josh doesn't get sick while his white blood count recovers. Today was another beautiful day with the high temperature right around 70 with clear blue skies. Should be wonderful weather for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving Little Snuggle Monkey!

I offer thanksgiving today that you, your beautiful brother Jarrod, equally beautiful brother Christian and his beautiful bride Jamie, your Mom and especially your Dad are part of my life now. Although your illness has taken the brilliant edge off my happiness, this is still the most blessed year of my life.

Keep fighting Josh. With all the prayers being lifted for you, there is absolutely no way you can do anything short of succeeding. After all, you are the MIGHTY WARRIOR!

Love, hugs and kisses.
