his counts were decent today- he got blood the other day and his hemoglobin was actually up from that count, as was his hematocrit. platelets are still dropping, which is totally normal w/ the disease....still annoying, but normal. we think the platelets were possibly high b/c he was on a high dose of IV steroids. now he is on a moderately high dose of oral steroids. but everything else was good (blood counts)....so it's fine.
i'm home w/ sawyer tonight, church is tomorrow. being here w/o ridge is always sad but hadn't really bugged me until the last time i was here- it's really hard to look in his room that we worked so hard on...knowing he should be sleeping in there, playing in there, talking/cooing/laughing in there....but he's growing up somewhere else. again, i know we are where we need to be. i know God is taking care of us. Sawyer loves the song "Mighty to Save" and asked me to play it for him tonight...so it is blaring out of the computer when i walk into ridge's room. all i could do in that moment was just fall to my knees and again beg for God to heal him....as I will continue to do, daily. we know we will have good days and bad, but our faith will not falter....it will not always be perfect, but it will always be THERE. We will always trust in our God...b/c....Savior, He can move the mountains...My God is Mighty to Save, He is Mighty to Save....Forever, Author of Salvation, He rose and conquered the Grave, Jesus conquered the Grave...
