Where do I start??

Sorry I have not updated sooner, there has been so much. I want to say thank you so much for all the prayers and every one who sent us messages, texts, and calls to let me know you are keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

When we got addmitted on Friday, we had no idea how long we were going to stay or what we were going to be told. We don't know if the fever was from something viral or if it was from his Leukemia, OH HOW I HATE CANCER!!! We got two rounds of antibiotics and Platelets and we got to go home on Sat. but before we got to go home Jacob had a very special surprise from some women here at the hospital. They wanted to do something special for Jacob, so they got him a xbox 360 and some games. OMG what a surprise, poor Jacob he had only 3 hours of sleep and was on steroids, boy what a combo :O/ So we couldn't get much of a reaction out of him, but boy as soon as we got home it had to get pluged in, Thanks for the great gift! We are so blessed to have meet so many people on the jouney we are on. So we got to enjoy our weekend at home. So today, Monday here we are again, we got addmitted this evening because of fever and he was just really tierd all day. So scary to see him like this :O( So we took cultures again and when his counts came back we found out his hibaglobin was way to low, that was why he was so tierd today. But we still don't know what is going on with the fevers.

Thank You for keeping our Jacob in your prayers!!

“One should believe in prayer” Prayer is a way to ask questions, express their feelings or their emotions as well as a way for the person praying to express their problems and discuss them with God. Prayer can be recognized as a communication tool as well as a stress relief tool for each individual that prays. Prayer is an emotional way to express sympathy or concern for others to God. Prayer is also a way to show faith in God. Conversation and prayer is an avenue for a person to share with what is in their souls, in their emotions or in their hearts. Conversation is to engage in another person on the other end listening and engaging them into that conversation. Prayer, on the other hand, is a way for that person to express themselves to God from their hearts and souls and their emotions of what is troubling them.

We had clinic today, and got news we really did not want to here, Jacob’s Leukemia is on the rise again :O/ Of course something I did not want to hear. I HATE CANCER!!! We have been doing well at keeping it controlled for the last 3 plus months. So we go in on Thursday for 2 chemo’s and blood work, then on Friday something new, Jacob has not yet had. Please pray that this all works and we can get in under control again. My precious boy, all smiles, so full of life, you would never guess that’s the very thing he is fighting for “LIFE”

It would mean a lot to Jacob and my family for everyone that visits this site to go to http://www.colesfoundation.com/ and click on cash give away fill out with your info and choose Jacob’s hope, and if you can spread the word, that would be great, THANK YOU!!

I count my blessings each and every day! Prayers, I DO BELIEVE!

Thank You for keeping our little Jacob in your prayers,

One day at at time

Wait on the lord; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen you heart; Wait, I say , on the Lord! Plalm 28:14

Well with last Friday’s (11/27/09) Spinal with chemo, we also found out that Jacob’s has no more Leukemia in his CNS. I have had questions from people, saying we are confused about Jacob’s Leukemia. I hope this makes everything all clear. Well, we had not gotten Jacob back into Remission this last past August; the main reason is due to the Fungal Pneumonia. So Ever since his Fungal Pneumonia in September we had stopped all chemo at that time, and started up light on the dosage of chemo weeks later. So we don’t want to hit him hard with the chemo, wipe out his immune system and have a recurrence of the fungal pneumonia. We want to try to keep him from getting sick with any thing, so keep him as healthy as possible & keep the Leukemia in our control. :O/ All this is so unbelievably scary! So hopefully in Jan we can see what our options are with transplant. The reason for this is once he had Fungal Pneumonia it can always pop back up, and it can prove to be deadly during transplant.

We had clinic today, his Leukemia blasts are showing up a little more in the past two weeks. This morning he had nausea, hopefully it is nothing.

Please shower my Jacob with prayer; that we can keep everything under control.

It would mean a lot to Jacob and my family for everyone that visits this site to go to http://www.colesfoundation.com/ and click on cash give away fill out with your info and choose Jacob’s hope, and if you can spread the word, that would be great, THANK YOU!!

I count my blessings each and every day!
