Happy Sunday to everyone!

I hope each and everyone woke up with a sense of enthusiasm this day. I sure did.

For me I woke up thinking that I might have a shot at getting out of receiving more platelets today. God blessed me with that little treat.

While my counts are all still pretty crummy, Plts 28; WBC .01; Hct 30.3… I won’t have to get platelets this time. That puts a smile on my face.

My APN (Cindy) did ask me a bunch of questions about a low grade fever that came up last night. 99.5 is not a lot, but for safety sake, she decided to infuse me with some heavier antibiotics. I’ll take the infusers anytime over an infection.

They also ran an EKG on me because my sitting heart rate was about 140. Once Peggy left the room my heart rate went back down so I think everything is working like it is supposed to on that regard.

We are excited to have the kids coming back to Little Rock today. They have been “vacationing” at home in Memphis since Thursday. Peace and quite are nice but we miss them and are ready for them to be back here with us.

If I haven’t said it lately, I must say it again thank you, thank you, thank you for all your prayers and may God richly bless you this day.

Hey you two yesterday Bill and I did a long run getting ready for the San Fran marathon. Since I lost yet another Ipod I ran the entire 20 miles with only my thoughts. I spent the hours praising Him and interceding for you and yours. I now include all of the 5 or more who are receiving this treatment. Thanks Frank for encouraging us to pray for the others.
love

Just stopped by to see if there was anything new and wanted to say hello. I know you are glad to have the kids back in LR. I looked for The Shack at Wal-mart, they didn't have it. I will pick it up at Lifeway...so much for reading it "together". We can discuss along the way while I read it though. I miss you both! Hugs!!!

Hi, Guys, Hope those platelets are even better today, Frank. Only you could walk around with a .01 WBC. That must be a medical record. Do you have the CDs of the last three sermons? If not, we want to get them for you. Eli is phenomenal. Leaving for a month in Colo. this next Tuesday-not all vacation as we are staying with the boys for a week, another teenager of a friend for a week and then on for two weeks in our cottage. Hopefully, it will be cool. It was 96 here today and will be again tomorrow-waaaaay too hot for a northerner person. Prayers, love and thoughts are with you all always. Pat
