Just wanted to touch base. For those of you who read Justin’s essay, he got an A on the rough draft but doesn’t have his final grade yet. Doesn’t matter, it’s an A in my book.
He also was accepted to LSU!! We were all excited. Now he just needs to audition for the band.

It was a breakneck trip to and from Houston last week. We left Monday after work and came home Tuesday after his chemo. His blood work was good. His white blood cell count was high so that is good. When it is low, he is more susceptible to infection.

We have been trying to keep him away from everyone because Shantel and Caley have both been sick. Shantel had the flu. He definitely doesn’t need that. So I have been disinfecting everything she touches!!!

This chemo is taking a toll on him. Thankfully, it doesn’t make him sick but he gets really tired but is unable to sleep. Something in the chemo keeps him from sleeping. So he will sleep an hour and then wake up. Sleep another hour and wake up again. It’s tough for him because he never gets and good sleep. Quite frustrating.

He goes back for chemo on the 10th.(Next Tuesday) and then we will go back on Feb 23rd for x-rays and scans and then see the Dr on Tuesday the 24th for results. Hopefully, they will be good. I want to hear that this chemo is working!!!!!!!!

Not much else to report now.

Love to all
Keep praying.
