Good Morning! I am snuggled up in bed with my two monkeys who are feasting on Crunch Berry cereal and watching their morning shows. Today we take Grant in to check his counts, receive a breathing treatment, and get the N1H1 shot. I can't wait to see his numbers. If they are open again on Wednesday, I will likely take him in to see if his counts are increasing so that I do not have to worry about them over Thanksgiving. I am also going to try to get an appointment with my GP to see about getti...

It has been another nice week.  Crazy though, that the nice weeks at home make you nervous. I am constantly worrying that Grant will spike a fever. I know when it is safe to take him out of the house, yet I can't get a grip on the temp thing. (Reminder, if he gets a temp of 101 - we get admitted.) If Grant goes above an under arm temp of 98.4, he almost always hits 101. Only twice has he gone up to 100.4 and we did not have to go in. I feel so bad for him. I come at him with a thermometer at ...

I cannot believe it is November. The time seems to by flying by, THANK GOD! Grant will begin his “two-years left till the end of treatment” count down this month. Two years. Wow. He will have "hospital chemo" until abound this time next year and then move on to the "easier clinic" chemo after that. Two years left.

Grant sure is enjoying his time at home thanks to his adjusted round of chemo. We all are. In fact, we just had the best weekend in a very long time. We actually got to a place w...

I am so sorry I have not been updating this. I have met so many people over the last few weeks that I don't even know that tell me they check this daily. I have been having such a nice time being out of the hospital that I just did not want to "deal" with this. So, I am so sorry to all of you who have been wondering and praying for Grant.

He is doing really well right now. We had a little scare on Monday night and I thought we were heading to the ER, but his fever only went to 100.2, so we got...

Grant's daddy is doing this entry.

First I want to thank Kelley Hubenak Michalski and her family.  They participated in the Light the Night Walk in Plano last week and were able to raise over $700 for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. Kelley and I went to school together from 1st through 12th grade.  I cant tell you how much it means to us that she would think of Grant.  We were going to be there in person but unfortunately I came down with a stomach bug.  Thank God Grant, the one with the damage...
