Update

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we will be checking back into the hospital tomorrow to start round two of the chemotherapy. He will get his Cisplatin, which goes in over a period of four hours and then on Wednesday he will get two more injections. If all goes well, we will go home on Wednesday. Please pray that all goes well. The more we are at home, the better it is for him. We have no peace and no rest at the hospital. It is almost impossible for anyone to get any sleep. Moby arrived safely yesterday and we are so happy. She has prepared little meals for us to take to the hospital, so we have been spared from the hospital food.
I must give special thanks to those of you that have been so helpful with Levi. Sis. Deborah took him to the beach for a few days, and he had a blast! Sis. Paula picked him up and took him to the park and the pool, our neighbors (The Sullivans) took him to the pool and to Chuckee Cheese, The Chavez's adopted Levi for the first week we were in the hospital (I will be forever grateful for that), The Smirnoffs (our other neighbors) are having him over for a play date and arranging meals from the neighborhood, and I could go on and on. We are so blessed. I just get choked up when I think of all the support we have gotten from so many friends. I could never tell everyone thank you enough times to really get across how much I mean it. I just pray the God blesses you all for everything you have done for us.

I prayed a special prayer for all our friends in the path of Hurricane Gustav. I pray it is not a repeat of what we all went through a couple of years ago. I pray a hedge of protection around you. I pray the hurricane weakens before it makes landfall and spares the Gulf Coast from devastation. In Jesus name.

I will update you all tomorrow on Day one of chemotherapy round two. We thank you for your continued prayer while we fight this battle.
