Rounding Third

Daddy & Lil’ Stitch

Emily is back in the hospital for her third round of high-dose Methatrexate. After her platelets and ANC were low on Monday, her normal Tuesday admittance was delayed to today.

With several family members out of town this week, most of the Love family packed a bag for this round of Chemo: Momma & Emily prepared for the hospital as the older Loves got ready for a trip down south to spend a fun weekend with Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Chris, and four of their cousins.

We’re all praying for yet another record clearance of the toxic drug from Emily’s body. She’s impressed everyone so far with how she’s handled this round, which had us all so worried at the outset. Even through the discomfort of side-effects, Emily is eating well, playing hard, and looking better than ever!

We are also beginning to see evidence that Emily’s own bone marrow is creating the healthy blood she needs. Instead of the regular trips to the infusion room for blood and platelet transfusions, Emily’s counts are finally rising all on their own!

Please pray that, once again, the “rescue” drug clears the Methatrexate quickly from Emily’s body this weekend. Pray for Christina and Emily as they endure another four days confined to a hospital room. Pray for Jason as he works and the kids as they enjoy time with their cousins. And praise the Lord for evidence of healing and the support of family and friends who continue to wrap their arms around the Love family! 

When you’re tired, even the floor-mat looks comfortable!
