Luke had a great time at his recital last night, performing well on both his flute and his piano. Luke is so talented, and it's really fun watching him doing what he loves. He also got to hang out with a bunch of his band friends, which was really cool for him. He did some improv on the piano...you can see a bit of the video here.
Luke was scheduled for chemo treatment on Monday and Tuesday, but his platelet counts had not yet recovered from his last treatment so he was bumped to Thursday (today) and Friday. Delays like this are very common for chemotherapy patients. So, he went back in this morning, and his counts were still too low, so now he will have his chemo next Monday and Tuesday, February 8 and 9. Which means that Luke will be able to perform on Saturday at full strength, rather than feeling lousy and tired. He's very excited and relieved...platelets don't lie! (Of course, Luke might not be so thrilled when Monday comes around!)
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and for your prayers. We can't stop, WON'T stop praying for God to heal our boy. (James 5:14-16)
James & Lu,
(for Sam, Jay & Luke)
