Pray for Grant

David again.

Grant went in yesterday for his scheduled bone marrow and spinal tests.  The first bone marrow result, the test that was false positive last time, was negative, which was great news. Now, we wait for spinal results and the other bone marrow results.  It should be late this week or early next week.  The waiting is always excruciating. 

Grant and Claire start school tomorrow. Its unbelievable that the summer is gone and that Claire will be in 1st grade.  Grant will be in pre-k 4.  Given his late birthday and the fact that he missed a full year of school, it was a pretty easy decision to hold him back a year.  So, he will start kindergarten next year at the age of 6. 

The kids met their new teachers and most of their classmates today.  They were both very excited.  Grant was most excited to find  that his new class room has soap in the kitchen area.  Apparently his old class room was soap-less. 

Special thanks to our friends, Casey and Kevin Levy.  Casey has done so much to help Melanie with the kids lately.  Claire and Grant absolutely love going to the Levy's house to see Casey, Kevin and their beautiful little girl, Samantha.  Just like Dena Marks and her family have done so much to help us,  the Levy's have been so generous with their time.  It really does ease some of the anxiety knowing that Claire is with friends while Grant and Melanie(and sometimes me) are at Clinic.
