silly boys

Friends, thanks for checking in on Isaiah's blog. It's always so encouraging to hear who is sticking with us!

Isaiah had a quick appointment today. The good news: His back is stable. There are no new fractures and the existing ones have not further deteriorated. Good news indeed. The not-so-good news: His ANC has dropped from 2900 two weeks ago to 300, probably due to a slight increase in one of his chemotherapy drugs. So we're nutrapenic which means lots of hand-washing and very limited contact. Please pray that he'll bounce back quickly and stay healthy!

Isaiah! We are so glad that your back is doing well. We will continue to pray that it recovers and doesn't bother you. Now for those counts... we will pray for those too. And congrats to Sadie! Wow, I think everyone is married now?! Have a good day.
Love the Liljas

Isaiah, I sure know what it's like to wash hands all the time. I've been working at a medical clinic so I wash my hands like every hour! Can't wait to see you back at church. We're praying you'll be out and dancing around soon.
