Day 7, I think.

This will be brief but wanted to update for all of you praying!

EEG is done. Everything looked normal, but he didn't have any episodes while on it. 
Hopefully they will never happen again.

Watts' poor hair took a hit from those EEG probes. 
We are trying to decide if we are going to buzz it now to hide the patches.

Fever has gone up and down the last couple of days. 
He has been afebrile for 24 hours now, though.

He needed blood yesterday again and it seemed to be a happy person's blood :) 
Within minutes of starting the transfusion, he was giggling and joking around.

His ANC is still good. It took a small dip but then climbed back up again yesterday so they are talking about us going home this morning. 

Watts is really nauseated. We are not sure if it is lingering effects of the MTX or whether he caught the stomach bug that apparently is sweeping the Ronald McDonald House, but he is throwing up a couple times.

Despite all of the above, Watts is happy, playful, and spent a good portion of yesterday evening racing/crawling back and forth on the couch in the room. Praise the Lord.


Please pray for the nausea to go away. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors. Please pray for my nerves...unanswered questions and weird symptoms do a number on mind goes to places that I don't want to go. Pray for our time at home (if we get home!) to be restful and good for Watts specifically. 


We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 
Romans 5:1-2
