Blogging to Baby Einstein

First of all I would like to start by saying thank you to all of you who have left thoughtful and loving comments, prepared dinner for us, sent thoughtful cards, watched the boys, offered to watch the boys, and many other kind gestures. There are too many to name, but you know who you are, and we know who you are...and we love you.

So Shannon asked me to do the blogging yesterday and we didn't get home until after midnight. We took the boys to Thanksgiving Point to see the fireworks there with some good friends. It has been a fourth of July tradition for the last few years. We missed having baby Lucas with us but it was good to spend time with Kaden and Jonas. I didn't really see them all last work week.

Lucas is doing pretty well, I am up at the hospital tonight with him and he is pretty content. When I got here he was pretty happy and even gave a few smiles. I held him for a while and he fell asleep on my chest in the rocking-chair. It was such a comforting and wonderful thing to having him resting peacefully in my arms. Too often it is easy to take the little things in life for granted.

Lucas is still in the Chemo process and his white blood cell counts are fairly low. He has a pretty bad rash right now and the Dermatologists are trying to determine the cause. Yesterday I had to give permission to the Dermatologist to do a skin biopsy. They gave him local anesthetic and took a piece of skin out of his upper thigh about half the size of a pencil eraser and then stitched it up. The poor little guy is going through so much but he seems to be taking it in stride. He is such a good baby even with all that he is dealing with.

Those are the big things this weekend that come to mind. Thank you all for your support and prayers. May God bless you for your kindness and thoughtfulness.
