Dad back at the Hospital

We are home from Chemo and David is resting and doing well. His white blood cells were high again, but he will still have to take five more shots starting next Monday. I guess this will be the normal thing from now on. He said one thing that was so wierd today was watching the medicine travel up his arm. One of the drugs is bright red, so when the liquid enters the vein, you can actually see it travel up his arm and spread all around. I would have liked to see it, but I got the boot again. Whenever it is crowded in the room, the nurses make everyone leave. I was able to meet my friend Shannon for coffee and lemon cake at Starbucks, which was a fun and unexpected treat in the middle of the day. When we got home, I heard that my dad had a nosebleed this morning so he had to go back to the hospital to make sure everything was OK. The doctor ended up keeping him there because he needed a blood transfusion. I think he will be able to go home again tonight though. I will probably try see my nanny and him on Thursday or Sunday to say Hi, drop off some groceries and give Katja a chance to get some errands done.

Dave & Lauren,
We're praying for continued strength for you two as you continue on. Marriage is a true gift - it's times like these where we truly appreciate the gift that God has given us. Lauren, I'm thankful Dave has you to encourage him, love him, hug him and take special care of him. You are perfect for him.
Love, Ashley

Dear Lauren and David,
Praise the Lord! "I will proclaim the name of the LORD! O praise the greatness of our God! He is the rock. His works are perfect. His ways are just. He is a faithful God who does no wrong. Upright and just is he. Deut. 32:3-4
We continue to pray for grace, strenght, comfort and trust as you walk through each day with Him.
We love you,
