"Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory". Psalm 115:1
Today has been a great day. Everything looks like we will be
discharged tomorrow. We got the shot today, the fever has been kept below the magic number and we are gradually progressing to meds by mouth versus i.v. The hardest thing that we're still dealing with is mouth sores. I think they may be a little better today but they still look horrible. Jimmy was given "some" freedom today. He actually got to leave the floor. This was the first time he has even seen an elevator since last Saturday. We did some walking within the building and he got to talk to the boys without restrictions.
We took a walk to the beauty/barber shop. That was a major decision but one that had to be made. They were so very nice and supportive of what he wanted. They deal with that everyday, but it was a new experience for us. Now we just have to adjust. We got to keep some hair for now. When he wears his cap, you can't even tell. We'll know probably within two weeks if it will stay. It's so easy for me to tell him that it will grow back and that this is the least of our worries. But I also realize that until you've been there and seen it on the pillow, you don't understand. Anyway, enough about that.
We'll be heading to Magee before you know it. You better bet we'll have a mask when we hit the airport. Maybe the swine flu is getting better but you can bet we won't take any chances. See you soon!

Jimmy's status as of Thursday night:
Is God good or what? This is his first round of treatment. He will go home and recover for two weeks and head back - 3 cycles in all. Thanks for keeping him in your prayers. He can feel them!
