He woke up hungry!

Isaiah did just great at his appointment today. He was strong and had a great attitude the whole time. He was helped-along by the "Little Wish" folks at Sutter who delivered a complete basketball uniform that Isaiah "wished" for during his hospital stay in May/June (we watched a few NBA playoff games together during that stay).
Isaiah's counts were too low (for a third week in a row) for his oral chemotherapy to resume, though he did still receive chemo through his port as well as through a spinal tap.

These days at the hospital are always long and emotional as we often hear difficult news about other kids we've come to know and care for who are fighting this fight.

Thanks for coming along-side us today.

Wow! A complete basketball uniform. Isaiah, you look very grown-up in it! I didn't know you were a basketball fan.

I'm so glad your visit to the doctor went well today. I've been praying for you this weekend and today, kiddo!

Love and Light to all,

Hi Isaiah, I was hungry too, so I had TWO ice cream sandwiches when I finished my fast!!!! I hope you had something more healthy, since you are obviously a basketball star and need to stay in great form!!! I loved your uniform and your wonderful smile. We all send hugs from San Diego....

HI Isaiah,

I'm glad to hear that things went well for you today! I thought about you all day while I was teaching my second graders. I love the jersey! First you're a super hero, now an NBA star... I can't wait to see what's next. We wish you a great rest of the week. Give Sienna a big hug for us too.

Love, Meghan and Dustin
