Well the medicine is flowing. It started at 2pm. So far no side effects, but time will tell.

Blake's been in good spirits today. His neck pain from the insertion of the port is subsiding. He used his crutches and went for a couple of walks. He made some foil-backed paper with the teachers in the hospital school and started making a sculptural origami mask!

Jen was home with Victoria for most of the day. They had a great day together. Jen made a tasty meal and brought it to the hospital where we all ate dinner. Jen made lots, so we shared with some fellow patients, one grandma, and the staff. Go figure! It's hard to slow down my wife!

Praise to God for his tender mercies. This road is is difficult. Yet we see moments of blessing and His goodness in many ways.
