I just wanted to get out another quick update to ask you to pray for Ellie. She has had a very rough evening. I'm hoping that it's not from the effects of the radiation, but I kind of think that it is. Right now there are so many things going on for Ellie, and tonight it was just too much. John and Ethan got on the web cam and Ellie cried her eyes out for missing her dad. She had some stomach and head pain throughout the evening, and with her low blood counts, she has been so tired and has lost her appetite. Ellie finally got to where she was feeling ok, then she ended up vomitting. We have to give her a shot every night for about 2 weeks. Mom is here now, so it has fallen to her to take John's place in giving the shot. (We will have to be desperate for me to be able to do it.) Tonight the numbing cream didn't work like it usually does, so that was traumatic. All in all it has been a long gruelling night. Mom and I are physically and emotionally spent, but no matter how bad that is, it's much worse for Ellie. I honestly can't remember the last time I saw her so miserable. She finally just fell asleep (it's almost 1 a.m.) holding her daddy's shirt and cuddling with Grandma. So please remember Ellie tomorrow as she has more radiation... I just don't know what to expect. I only know that when we get there, God will be there ahead of us and He will be enough... no matter what. Thank you.
