Well, in a pleasant change of events, I’ve had David with me in the new apartment since Sunday night. His dad has decided to go back to work, and has agreed to let David stay with me more often. It’s been good getting into a routine with him.
On Monday, we got off to a sluggish start. He doesn’t do too well with mornings these days, but we got out of the house for lunch, went to Giant to fill a prescription, dropped off recycling, and went to school to sign some papers. Tuesday was much the same. We started with lunch, then to the library to work with his homebound teacher. They both felt like a lot was accomplished so that was a good day! Also, we checked out a cool Star Wars craft book that we may have to explore in our “down” time.
Today, I’m still waiting for him to gather the energy to face the world. The plan is to go to school to go to his 4th block class… 3rd block if we are lucky, but that’s not looking so good at this point. His best hours are the evening, but unfortunately, most everything with school is over by 2:15 pm.
Tomorrow, he goes back to VCU for an MRI to check the status of his tumors. We haven’t been seeing any new symptoms, so I’m praying for some shrinkage. I’m not sure when we will get the results from the MRI, but it probably won’t be tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted. We’d sure appreciate some extra prayers for a good scan. We are ever mindful of God’s presence along this path, and we know that so many of you are lifting us up. Thank you so much for that.
