Sorry I did not get to update this yesterday. It was just a busy day!

Grant has started to get sick from the Chemo. Poor little guy got sick in the car yesterday on the way to get his hair shaved. David had to swing by Children's Place to get him some new clothes so we could still make his appointment. He got his hair cut by Taylor at The Conservatory Day Spa in Kingwood. She did a great job. I can not say enough good things about the staff and ownership there. Thank you so much for everything yesterday!

We got some preliminary good news! The 1st test from the bone marrow biopsy came back and showed that there were NO CANCER CELLS!!! The chemo is working !!! And this is before he has even started the Glevac medicine!!! We are just thrilled and know it is because off all the prayers! SO THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!!! They are going to test it several more times to make sure this is correct, but it looks good so far. We are still waiting on the results from the spinal tap.

Grant had a Echo Cardiogram and an EKG this morning. David was with him and Grant did pretty good during it. We should have those results on Monday. The medicine he starts next week can cause issues with the heart, so they need to make sure he is okay to take it.

We are still having a heck of a time with the oral medication. If anyone has a suggestion on how to make it earier for him to take it, please e-mail me. He just goes crazy everytime we have to give it to him. I took the medicine back to the pharmacy to flavor it and even changed its color. Nothing is working!!! We are willing to try anything!!! Please let me know your thoughts.

To all of you who have contacted me through FACEBOOK - I have not had time to respond. When I do, it will be through my husband's account. I still can not access mine. And for those that have asked me to be your "friend" I promise I will say yes as soon as I can get into my account!!

Thanks again to all of you for supporting us and for praying for Grant. Please keep it up. Your prayers are working!
