Josiah went in for his chemo treatment today, but they were unable to do it as his counts were too low.  
He is going back in on Friday, and they will retest to see if his counts have come up so that they can resume his chemo treatments.

Update & picture of Josiah from his Oma

We are very thankful Josiah's fever is back in the normal range!! His hemoglobin is very low so they are giving him a blood transfusion today.  Thank you for your prayers!

Joshiah is not doing well today, his temperature is at 100.4 on Tylenol, he is very sore and white, and may need a blood transfusion.  The chemo causes all of his nerve endings to be painful.   They have done some tests, and the results will be in tomorrow.  It is likely a virus as his immune system is down. He won't be allowed to go home until they can get his fever under control.  Please pray for pain relief, and a drop in his temperature.

Prayer Request

Josiah has been admitted to the hospital as he has a high fever, And his neutrophil counts are low which means that he's not fighting the infection.  He has to stay for a minimum of 48 hrs for monitoring.  Please pray that his fever goes down and his counts go up.

Joe is doing good. He isn't eating much but is happy. He had a break this Friday and didn't have to go in to the hospital. He is taking an oral chemo every day this month two hours after supper. Friday he goes in for two different kinds of chemo through the IV. He will go in every ten days for two months for an escalating amount. He has a cough right now like the rest of our kids, but not as bad, and seems to be fighting it on his own. James and Ian made it back safely from Mexico :).  Thanks for your continued prayers!  ~ James & Nelly
