My son Update

Cole's blood count continues to rise. We were given the option of another shot or admitting him to the hospital. Cole hates shots, so much so, we began a game of hide and seek at the clinic. He hid under the chair in the room at the clinic. When we moved the chair he scooted under the examination table. It took four of us to hold him down when they drew blood and gave him the shot. We opted for the shot, know he would be poked and prodded even more at the hospital.

It broke my heart to hear him screaming as we were holding him down. The pain in his eyes as he stared at me through the tears.

If his count does not come down tomorrow, he will have to be admitted to the hospital. Your continued thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Brian,

Praying for your son man! I can only imagine what that must be like! I know I don't know you, but I had seen that you commented on one of my blogs a while back, and we are all one in Christ! I thought about all the cliche' comments I could make like "God is in control" and all that right now, but I know 1. You must likely know that and 2. That doesn't always provide the comfort it should. I will lift up your child and family to God and pray that He OVERWHELMS you with HIS peace during this time, cliche' or not!!!
