Pray for Grant

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 with three MAJOR baseball players. The funny thing is, he is too young to really care! Still, it is pretty cool!!! :) Earlier this year at the Shell Houston Open, Grant had his picture taken with Mike and Mike of ESPN Radio. David thought that was just too cool since he listens to them every morning.

I wanted to make everyone aware of two big blood drives that are happening in Grant's honor. I have the information listed below and on the Blood Drive page of this site. Thank you soooo much to Tiffany Hardwick and Holly Botyos for organizing these.

Also, I wanted to mention that we met a very nice waiter at Chachi's in Kingwood last night that has a son that is also being treated here at TCH for Leukemia. His name is Leo. If you get a chance to have dinner there, ask for him to be your waiter and leave a nice tip. He could really use the money. His wife also just had a baby and is unable to work right now so she can stay home and take care of their kids. THANKS!!!

Okay, the blood drive info is as follows:
