isaiah update

Friends, Isaiah is feeling great these days. His counts dropped way back down early this week so the doctors took him off all chemo for a week. I wish we could just be done with the chemo...he's nearly back to his old self. We're pursuing physical therapy for his back (his compression fractures continue to bother him). Overall, things are moving along well. During this phase (interim maintanance) you don't make up weeks of treatment that are missed. So we're still moving toward beginning the most difficult phase (delayed intensification) sometime during the last week of September (assuming his counts are above 750).

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

Hey, I'm glad you're feeling better, Isaiah. I pray every day for your continued healing!

I used arnica cream on a compression fracture I had and it helped. If your docs say it's OK, you might try that. It especially helps with swelling and muscle pain.

Since you are a Star Wars fan, Isaiah, I recommend my cousin's family blog site. She and her hubby are SUPER FANS of the SW franchise. They went to the Los Angeles Star Wars convention this year and Terri dressed the kids as R2D2 and 3CPO. The kid's pix got into a national fan magazine. Check it out.

Love and hugs to all of you!!!!
