Hello everyone!! Today was the beginning of round 2 of chemo!! Yay!! I know it may sound strange to be excited about the chemo, but the sooner we get this done, the sooner we move onto getting better!! So YAY for that!! He did well this afternoon considering he had not eaten since 7am!! We wheeled him down to the OR at about 1pm and then he went into the spinal tap procedure around 2pm--I just tried to keep him asleep so he would not realize how hungry he was. They did another spinal tap along with a bone marrow aspiration which will tell them if he has any leukemia cells in his bone marrow. We will get the results on Monday and are hoping that it shows that they are all gone! When Dylan was done, Daddy was there to hold him and we just chilled together all afternoon. He has woken up to eat a couple of times, but other than that, he has been sleeping all day. He tends to sleep a lot on chemo days and especially after getting anesthesia. He is so cute when he sleeps!! :) Ok, ok, he is cute ALL of the time!! I'm sort of in love with the little guy!! We had a few visitors this afternoon along with some yummy dinner! We are soooooooo thankful for everyone bringing down dinners. If you would like to sign up for a dinner, you can go to foodtidings.com and just look us up! Thank you for the past 30 meals we have already had! There are some pretty amazing cooks out there!! And don't worry, if you are like me and are not the best cook, or you just do not have any time, there are always restaraunts! Well, I think that is all for now. Dylan will be on Chemo for the next 20 hours continuously so please pray that his little body--specifically his kidneys--can handle all of the toxins. Thank you for praying for our precious boy!!
In His Grip,
