We celebrated Noah's birthday this past Saturday with our family. As you can see in the pictures below he was able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and the birthday decorations some friends put in the yard. We even took him to the "kiddie carnival" where the Lion's Club was having a plate lunch fundraiser for him. It was a good weekend. And our house is now covered in EVEN MORE toys and balloons from one end to the other! Noah was really excited to have so many people in the house at once - he went from person to person hugging and soaking up the love. He definitely enjoyed all the attention he was getting! His actual birthday is Sunday (2/28) but since we have his third chemo treatment on Wednesday, we knew he wouldn't be well enough to have anyone over to celebrate this weekend.
Please remember us in your prayers these next few days as we prepare for the trip to Birmingham, the treatment, the side effects...pray for Noah's body to respond well to the drugs, for his appetite to rage, for his taste, for his temperament, for him to feel no pain. I had some blood drawn today, and I forgot how it hurts. This little guy was getting stuck in his arms twice a week for a while. He's tougher than I am! We appreciate all the help that has been given to us, and all the prayers for healing and comfort. We will update on Noah's condition while in the hospital. God bless you!
