Day 2 - 1st Day of Chemotherapy

We have great family and friends that have reached out to us in so many ways.  You are all such a blessing to us and we appreciate all of your well wishes and prayers.  Our friend Jarrod sent us this scripture this morning and it was so fitting for today.  "Therefore we do not lose heart.  Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day"  2 Corinthians 4:16.

Dakota & David checking in for chemo 

                              Waiting for the doctor to see us before Dakota starts treatment.
The doctor had good news for us today.  It seems that his body has been fighting the cancer and his blood count is still very good.  He even gained 2 lbs this week.  The cancer in his bone marrow was minimal and they did find other lymph nodes that were swollen but all of his internal organs looked good.  God is good, all the time. 

Waiting, waiting, waiting...lots of waiting today.  Waiting for his chemo treatment in his new best friend, the recliner.  Doesn't he look like a happy camper here?  LOL
Finally, chemo started!

His port

Dakota with his nice 24-hour fanny pack.  He will go back tomorrow to get this taken out and to get a shot.  This fancy little fanny pack will deliver the medicine known as the Red Devil...ironic. 
Out for today.  I will be going back to work tomorrow and Friday and David will be on daddy duty.  I will get the next three days.  We are very blessed to have good jobs that allow us to acquire a lot of leave.  I can't imagine doing this and having to worry about not having leave or losing our jobs.  Blessed...
