"We went to see baby Ethan for the second time and it was really fun. I forgot what he looked like so I wanted to see him again. I spent the night at Auntie Angie's house and I tried throwing a stick up in the tree for like two minutes [really 20 minutes] and I finally got it in. Then I wanted to get it out. I had a second birthday that was kind of "Carsish, Chicken Littleish" because the table cloth was Cars but the pinata was Chicken Little with a tiny bit of blue on the bottom. I broke the pinata open. I was really happy. Baby Ethan was very cute. Sometimes he had really happy times and sometimes he fell asleep. He mostly falls asleep and mostly wakes up and then goes right back to sleep. Thank you to my tia Gloria, Lucila, Cristina, Grandma, Aunties and cousins for my second birthday. I was really happy. Then I finished my trip and came home."- Isaiah
Isaiah had a great weekend just hanging out and being a 5 year old boy (sword fighting, eating cake, laughing, arguing about bathtime with mom, reviewing Star Wars trivia and begging to watch just one more cartoon). Tomorrow we go back to the Dr. for a bloodcount check and physical exam. He continues to take chemotherapy by mouth daily. Today we begin week three of "Interim Maintenance" the third stage of Leukemia treatment. It is followed by "Delayed Intensification" which will begin sometime in September. Thank you for praying for his healing and strength.
The last thing he said to me Sunday night was, "Mom, sometimes when I pray and have no one's hand to hold I hold God's hand."
