We are just about to leave the hospital. Grant handled this round of chemo very well and cleared his chemo perfectly. We expect his counts to drop some, but nothing too drastic. We hope to have a great three weeks at home before we check back on on Aug. 9.

I'll update more when we get home. Thank you for the prayers!

I am off to pack the car!!!

After a wonderful weekend celebrating Grant's 4th birthday, we are checked back in. Grant received his spinal tap this morning and is now waiting to start his Methotrexate. This drug will run for 24 straight hours and then we will hope it clears his system in a timely fashion. We should be out of here sometime on Thursday if all goes as planned.

If you have not checked out the new pictures of Grant at the bottom of the home page, you must do so. I can't believe that Grant has now had his pic...

ve had such a great time at home the last couple of weeks. Claire and Grant went to see “Toy Story 3” last week, which they loved! Grant is a HUGE fan of the "Evil Dr. Pork chop." I had a few of the characters from when I was a kid and have given them to Grant to play with. He and Claire have spent the past week playing with them and having a ball.

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. We sure did! I think this was the best 4th we have ever had. On Friday, July 2nd, Claire an...
