Resting... Day 120 12MAR09

Joshua has spent the better part of today, except for a few hours, asleep. The hospital stay, the chemo, it all caught up with him. He, at least, ate well while he was awake. It was great to be able to cook for him again.

He gave us a little scare this afternoon when he all of a sudden started in with a 100.4 temperature. We all went numb for a few minutes as we silently wished the fever away. It dropped shortly after to a respectable level. This darn fever is just haunting Josh. The scary thing for us is the last time we had an unexplained fever that wouldn't go away our lives changed forever. There seems to be nothing wrong with Josh that the doctors can find. Everything checks normal. His little body has just run a fever for several weeks this time.

Jarrod decided today that his port city needed a gantry crane so we talked about the design for a little while and then he built it. It was pretty impressive. If LEGO is smart they will hire Jarrod right out of college.

We are going to keep all of our fingers crossed, which makes it rather hard to type, that Josh will sleep through the night and not develop a fever.

He needs all the rest he can get, but he needs to get it here.

Josh so glad you ate and slept your day away. that's what boys are supposed to do! Tell that nasty little fever builder to go away:0

Jarrod, you are brilliant and remember when Lego wants to hire you, remind them it's Chef jarrod and you want your own private kitchen!

We pray for a nice quiet weekend at home for the whole family! Love, Laura & Frank

Hey Snaggle Snuggle Monkey,

I am delighted you are eating. It's a good thing that you are sleeping a lot so your body can rest and catch it's breath. But this fever business is making me crazy (along with your parents)! I think the things I can't understand are the ones that worry me the most. And this worry tops the list.

I hope you spend the weekend at home.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

You are absolutely AMAZING! If LEGO doesn't hire you NASA certainly will! And I agree with Miss Laura - you should demand your own private kitchen.

Can't wait to see what you build next.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
