Hi family and friends!

How hot can it get, really? It is so hot here. I know it's hot at home too.
Frank and I went into the clinic today. They gave him his shots, antibiotic and drew his labs. We didn't wait to see what his blood work looked like, so we won't know until tomorrow. They said yesterday to expect his white count to be at it lowest. So he's wearing his mask now. His platelets dropped from 80's to 50's in one day.

He's eating better. He was craving a Big Mac for lunch and he ate the whole thing. That was probably the most calories he's had in one sitting since he's been here. I was glad to see him enjoy it. Eating should be that fun shouldn't it?

After lunch, we got his hair cut. (my favorite hairdresser is here) Heather buzzed him down pretty close...he's getting ready to shave it any day now. He looks good bald, but I have to admit I liked his wavy hair. Maybe it will come back in even more curly! We'll have to wait and see.

We're laying low tonight. We're watching Walk the Line, and I'm working on the computer. I'm ready to see the kids. Both our moms are with kids this week. My mom has ours. They are keeping her busy with their ever growing social schudules. Bible studies, swimming, soccer, dentists, birthday party. I feel guilty that I'm not doing much of anything and she's so busy. But I am so thankful. Frank's mom has Neely's 3 while they are in San Fransico.

Thank you for signing the guest book. We both enjoy reading your encouraging words. They really do mean so much. There is something so uplifting knowing you are cared about and thought of. It means the world to him to read those throughout the day. Thank you for taking the time.

We are so grateful and thankful for so many things. God has given us so many blessings, even in the midst of the trials.
We are blessed. We are blessd. We are blessd.
