Day -7

Are you sick of the count down? We are!

Today was really a pretty good day. The nurses say that he is doing better than most patients. He really hasn't experienced any visible effects of the chemo yet. They up-ed the dose of chemo and then the brought it way down. Tonight he will have had 8 does of chemo. So far so good.

Right now the hardest part is being trapped in this little space. We have started playing Settlers of Catan online. We watched the first three episodes of Heroes. We like it. We also had a few visitors which broke up the day a little bit. I am just scared for when it all hits - which it most certainly will.

The kids swam in their cousins pool for hours today! They were so happy. Thanks to everyone who is helping so much to make this time easy on the kids and me. We feel so blessed.

Hang in there! The tv series is a great idea to pass the time, but three episodes down already? You'll be able to get through all the seasons at that rate. Also, maybe Kenyon can take up needlepoint or knitting. . . :)

So glad to hear you had a great day and that things are going better. Looks like you started on Heroes-- what a great show. I saw someone else recommended Arrested Development- if you want a good LAUGH you should definitely watch it. Its pretty funny.

I am with Juliann - Kenyon would be an excellent knitter (is that a word?) Just make sure all of his projects are cougar blue!

My cousin was stuck in the hospital when she was pregnant and on bed rest for a couple of months. I think they hooked up their Nintendo to play there at the hospital. Not a great time filler, but one still the same. We are thinking about you and praying for you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

Annie, I am so glad that you are posting. I read every day and keep you and your family in our prayers. Have you read all the Twilight books? Ben and I both read them and really enjoyed them, we read aloud to eachother all the time, you could try that. Thank you for keeping us up to date.
