Hannah Update 9.22.08

Hannah finished her fourth round of chemo this week, but it's been complicated by a bout with the stomach virus. Her first two days of chemo went pretty well, just some fatigue, and then things went bad. She woke up about 2:00 Friday morning really sick. She felt really bad all day Friday and Saturday, but seemed much better yesterday (Sunday). She went to school this morning, but then had to come home because she was really feeling sick again. We are not even going to get our weekly bloodwork today, because I think the drive to the doctor's office would be awfully hard on her. I've been in contact with Children's Hospital, and the nurse there told me they've seen several kids who have had the stomach virus for four days...which is how many days Hannah has been sick now. Thankfully, she was able to keep down her Temodar (and she's finished with that now) and has been able to eat and drink at least a little bit over the last few days. Our main concern at this point is dehydration, so please join us in praying that her stomach will settle, and that she'll be as good as new soon!

Thank you so much for your prayers...they continue to carry us day by day!

"Praise be to...the God of all comfort...who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." I Cor. 1:3-4 NIV

God is good, all the time!
