No Drugs For David

We were all geared up for David's 2nd round of chemo today, but he wasn't able to get it. His white blood cell count was too low. He started at 8.0 and to get chemo, you have to have around 4.0. His count today was 1.5. He will have to give himself injections to raise the white blood cells artificially over the weekend and hopefully by Tuesday he will be able to try again. He still feels fine, but if he is exposed to a slight infection of any kind, it could be extremely dangerous. They even told us not to eat any raw fruit or veggies because they could have germs on them! Please pray for David to stay healthy and be able to keep his normal routines like going to work, church etc without getting sick. My dad started his chemo yesterday and is handling it pretty well so far. He even went to the mall afterward to go hat shoppping. I convinced him to buy the Goofy hat at Disneyland which you can see in the end of the slideshow. He is going to wear it to his treatments. I thought it was a great idea and it will definitely give everyone there a good laugh.

I've got tears in my eyes imagining what each new day brings for you all. Be comforted with the knowledge that your family is being prayed for by so many people. We love and serve an amazing God and we know that He is in control of all things. Please give Dave our love and tell your dad that the Iverson Family is lifting him up in prayer also.

Walking in His Strength,
Kelli I.
