My goodness…times flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe how long it’s been since the last update.
Weather was perfect…boy’s first plane ride was great and we even had a black stretch hummer limo pick us up and bring us home from the airport! I really wish I could describe the whole trip down to every detail, it was one made with a lifetime of memories! Thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation…truly a phenomenal organization!
Unfortunately, Jordan started to get sick with sore throat and stuffy nose on plane ride home that did end up with a fever and landed us almost immediately in the hospital. Yes…I know this was the last place we wanted to be after being gone on vacation and so exhausted. Once Jordan recovered, I got sick and took even longer than him to recuperate. But hey, we didn’t get sick on the trip and that’s what we were afraid of. So thank the good Lord for answered prayers!
Since then, Jordan has still been doing his regularly scheduled chemo along with chemo pills every night. The leukemia is in remission and I confess it will stay that way…in Jesus Name!!! School is going great for him and he is still very much involved in baseball. His hair is curlier then ever and the weight is coming on slowly but surely. I can’t believe today marks the 2 anniversary since he was diagnosed! We estimate that he has about 2 more years left of chemo therapy to go.
Still, there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thanking God for his healing power that he has on Jordan’s body. We feel so fortunate that his life was spared. I admit…there’s always that fear in the back of my head that hinders me from having that complete peace I long for, but that’s when I start to remind myself of God’s promises.
When people ask, I always say when Jordan does good, we do good.
So…Shawn, Tristen, Jordan and myself continue to conquer on and fight the good fight. We really do know how truly blessed we are and may you all never take the precious life that God has given you for granted!
