Finishing this round

Ellie's sodium rose to proper levels today so the doctors were able to readminister the chemo drug that had been stopped. Tomorrow will tell how Ellie will respond to it. After the completion of the chemo round, Ellie will be administered a daily shot that will help stimulate white blood cell growth. The MIBG test is still scheduled for tomorrow.

Ellie had a pretty good day today. Her job right now is to concentrate on eating, drinking, and resting. Hopefully this round of chemo will be over soon and she will have some time of feeling better.

Ethan got to spend time with Sarah today. They got to play together at the Ronald McDonald house playroom and have a meal together. That meant a lot to both Ethan and Sarah.

Please pray:

1.) That Ellie will tolerate the chemo drug.

2.) That the MIBG test will provide helpful information.

3.) That all family members, especially Ethan, will be comforted and will adjust to life being different.

We are praying daily for all of you. Please know we are here when and if you need ANYTHING!!
I'm so glad we're able to see what specific prayers you need each day. I've asked our China travel group and my BSF ladies group to pray without ceasing.
Much Love,
