Trips to the fish hatchery.
Piles of books from the library for bedtime stories.
Sunshine on our faces.
The first day of wearing shorts.
Digging in the dirt.
Hikes with daddy.Weeks like we've had lately only confirm that it truly is the little things that count.
Jacob starts treatment on Monday. He will have all his baseline scans, a hearing test, and be in the hospital for his 5 days of chemotherapy. We will then go home and in about two weeks when his counts bottom out and just begin to rise again, we will then head back to the hospital for his stem cell harvesting.
My dad is still in ICU but should be able to be moved to a regular room tomorrow, and should be coming home on Monday or Tuesday. Tests confirm that he had a massive heart attack and that his heart function is at about 50% at the moment. Doctors expect those numbers to rise in the coming weeks but it will be a long road to recovery for him.
Count your blessings today - there is always something to be thankful for.
