Everything is going to be alright

Jonathan was supposed to have his second chemo tomorrow but it got postponed a week because his white blood cell count is too low. This is a total bummer because: a) it means the finish line seems further. b) we were both mentally prepared for tomorrow- we even came back from vacation to get unpacked and ready. c) he’s at a high risk for infection right now so he can’t hang out with the baby much, and we have to avoid crowds this weekend. Movie nights at home, I guess? d) he has to give himself shots for the next five days, and for five days during EVERY cycle moving forward. And the shots can cause bone pain.

Everything isn’t totally the way we’d like for it to be right now, and I just need to say that publicly.

your honesty is an encouragement and your faith speaks louder than anything else. praying for all that you mentioned...really praying that this additional week is a sweet one filled with many moments of laughter and joy, even in the midst of the suckiness!

Your quote says it best... "Everything is going to be alright, maybe not today but eventually." Your family and friends are always available to keep encouraging both of you. xoxoxox Mom & Dad

Sometimes it just helps to get real. At multiple points in my mom's journey I said, "God is good, but cancer sucks."

Very disappointing, praying time passes quickly and Jonathon gets better, not worse.

Lame. We're sorry to hear about the delay in this, not to mention the extra shots Jonathan has to deal with now. We're praying!
