Update: Round 5 Week 3

It's been a week since my last post and it's been quite uneventful. Yahoo! Forester's counts were back up on Thursday and we were able to stop the GCSF shots.  As of yesterday his platelets were still on the low side but not low enough for a transfusion.  We go back on Friday to check his counts again and then round 6 (FINAL!) is scheduled for the following Wednesday, Nov. 4th.  So we have another week of feeling pretty good and just being together before we start all over again.  Thank you, Lord!  Thursday is Micah's 5th birthday.  Because of our situation we are have a very small family party which Micah seems completely fine with.  He's chosen a Super Mario Brothers theme with a Pumpkin cake. Interesting...  I have a couple crafts planned so it should be fun.  I can't believe he's going to be FIVE!http://stevereenie.files.wordpress.com/2007/06/super-mario-bros.jpg

We're trying to stay indoors as much as possible but please continue to pray protection over our family against any illnesses - especially the flu! Forester is in the high risk category and as I've said before we don't want anything to prolong his treatment! Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement.
