Pray for Grant

David here.   We're sorry for not updating in so long.  As most of you probably assumed, no news was good news. Grant has been doing well.  He loves his Pre-K 4 class at St. Martha and has made lots of new friends, especially Ian, Clinton, Luke, Jacob and Joshua. 

Sunday is Light the Night Walk in The Woodlands.  Grant is one of the Honored Heroes this year, so he will get to be on stage at the beginning of the walk.   We are very excited about that. 

Grant is following his buddy Albert Pujols in the world series.  Grant told me last night that he'd like to see Albert today so he could hug him and tell him to hit a home run.   Don't think we can pull that one off.

Big sister Claire is doing great as well.  We continued to be amazed at how well she handles the extra attention Grant receives.  Grant is lucky to have a big sister like Claire. 

Grant's 32 month treatment regimen will be finished on approximately February 1.    He'll then go in every several weeks for blood testing until May 2014.

I like to write about some of the very thoughtful things people have done for our family since Grant was diagnosed.  I've written here before about Ron and Nancy and the rest of their family at Tin Roof BBQ.  They've been our friends since well before Grant was diagnosed.  Last night they hosted yet another blood drive in Grant's honor.  We are so touched that they continue to think of us.  I'd also like to mention Coby and Anne Collier, the owners of J Christopher's Restaurant in Kingwood.  When Grant was going through the worst of his chemo and often not wanting to eat anything, he would ask for only 2 things---carrot cake at J Christopher's and rice and beans at Skeeters(from his buddy, Raul).  During breaks in his treatment, if his counts were high enough,  we would take Grant to J Christopher's to eat dinner.  We told Coby and Anne about Grant's love for carrot cake and of course they were touched.  Since then any time we go to J Christopher's they bring out carrot cake for Grant and chocolate cake for Claire.  They go even further than that. Whenever Melanie's dad goes in to pick up food to take home, they give him carrot cake and chocolate cake to take to the kids.  I cant begin to explain how good it makes Melanie and me feel to know that people are thinking and praying about Grant.
