Thank you for praying for Isaiah. He is feeling better...not throwing up. We're praying and waiting for his liver function to return to closer to normal ("30" is normal; 300 is the limit of what they consider "acceptable" for kids on chemo; Isaiah was at 1000 on Monday). Our next appointment is in a week. They'll check his liver, re-evaluate his ability to handle chemotherapy, and potentially begin again at a lower dose. We're asking the Great Physician to heal what we cannot. Thank you for praying with us and for cheering him on.

Isaiah wants to say:

"Today I am feeling better. I hope you come on my blog. I hit a home run a few days ago when I was playing baseball. It was my first home run of the season. Also I am making tons of catches when I am practicing baseball. Once I even caught a ball with my bare hands. A few days ago I was playing baseball with my dad and he hit the ball and I caught it!"

I'm so glad you are not throwing up anymore and are feeling better. I'm praying for you every day, Isaiah (:

Wow! I didn't realize you hit a homerun. That is so cool! You must be a good catcher too.

Love and healing to all of you!

We are praying that your body is able to gain strength during this "break" from chemo, big guy. The boys pray at least three times a day EVERYDAY that you are having fun in baseball, but that you are staying safe and well enough to play. It's soooo cool that you're already hitting home runs!! We are cheering you on in every way... keep hittin' and catchin' those balls We know you will hit a home run and beat this cancer too! :0)

Hugs to you all,

The Grays
