Yesterday was officially Day 1 of Maintenance! This is a major milestone in Isaiah's treatment. It marks the beginning of fewer visits per month and long periods of time between spinal taps.
His treatment continues with daily chemotherapy at home, steroids at the beginning of each month and spinal taps every three months. Each phase of Maintenance is 12 weeks long. Thank you for joining us in prayer as we begin week number one of this first phase.
Yesterday was also DAY NINETEEN of Sienna's incubation period. We were all happily planning her "homecoming party" when we received a call letting us know she needed to be picked up early from school. She had a fever, was extemely tired and felt achy all over. Now we are anxiously waiting to see if she breaks out. We are still functioning as nomad parents, our hearts in two places when our bodies can only be in one. So we travel back and forth taking turns with each of the kids.
We are all feeling stretched to our limits. We embrace this Advent season with burning hope for Christ to be born into our need for Him right now!
