It's Amanda posting again! I'm here with Daddy because Mama, Jason and Brandy are at Camp Rocks this week.

We had to go to the hospital on Sunday because his temperature got up to 101.4. The doctor told us if it gets to 100.5 it's time to go to the ER. We were only at the hospital for a few hours. They gave Daddy some antibiotics and let him come home. That made him feel a lot better!

Daddy had a PET scan on Monday. We will get the results from that on Friday at his doctor's appointment. We, of course, know the results---no cancer, no problems, no nothing!

Continue to pray for Daddy's body--this is the end of his LAST chemo, but he's still very weak. We want him to bounce back quickly! Also, they are suggesting 22 radiation treatments after the chemo. All of this is just a matter of prayer--we want to see Daddy's completed healing. Remember, this is a spiritual battle that Jesus has won!

Lydia is here too, of course. Daddy said she makes him feel better. Here's a picture of her trying to crawl on the couch with her Papa!

Our prayer for this week is that Darrell (and his blood counts!) will be well enough to take chemotherapy on time this Thursday. This should have been the week he feels the best during the third round- but he actually has felt pretty bad this entire time- fever, headaches, high blood sugar and severe weakness.
Would you please join us in prayer that things will go as scheduled for this fourth and final round of chemo?
Thank you!

We're home from the hospital finally- five days total! However, within just a few hours of returning home. Darrell's fever spiked up again- all the way to 101.3 degrees. So, we're going back to the doctor today to see what's going on. Although Darrell is much more comfortable at home than in the hopsital, he is very, very weak and even shaky when he walks.

God is in control. Nothing is too big for His healing power to overcome- and that's where we stand- within the shadow of his wings of protection, healing and comfort!

Here are a couple of pictures from the recent hospital stay:
