Mixed News
Hi! Last week, the 12th, Quinton was supposed to go in for his 'bad' treatment. We were getting all geared up for it, but on Tuesday, he went to the lab to get some blood work done. His blood counts were too low for any treatments. The doctor told us they would put it off a week and hope the blood counts came back up with a week off. We were pretty surprised because Q had seemed pretty perky up to that point. His counts must have been on the down-hill side because as he stayed home from school the rest of the week to avoid crowds and the risk of infection, he was pretty tired. Grandma Mansfield came to stay with us to help out, and she enjoyed the time in the day with Q. This week was the first time I ever had to e-mail teachers and ask them to send assignments to the office for my kid because he will most likely miss a big chunk of next week, too. It felt kinda weird, I gotta say. The good news was that he didn't have to get a bad chemotherapy treatment. On the down-side, he is at risk with low blood counts.

We had a pretty nice weekend. Kira played an awesome basketball game. She owned some rebounds and scored some points:) Kira and Jacey enjoyed the warm weather on their scooters. Quinton completed a pretty detailed Lego project: the US Space Shuttle.

We are so grateful for all the prayers you've sent our way. It's been incredible, and I can just feel the strength and power that comes from that! We are continuing on the process to recovery and hope the best for our sweet boy. Thank you!
