We are celebrating....

GRANT'S END OF TREATMENT!  Woo hoo!  Please join us for a Ft. Worth Cats game on Aug. 26th to celebrate "no more chemo".  The game is at 6:05 p.m. at LaGrave Field (301 NE 6th Street, FW, TX 76164).  We have reserved a block of tickets.  If you would like to join us, you need to call 817.332.CATS to purchase your tickets.  You just need to mention Grant when you order so you will be seated in our section.  The tickets are $5/person and $5 for parking.  We are so excited for Grant and look forward to everyone coming out to celebrate with us!  Hope to see you there!

We are proud of you, say we are proud of you!

This is a picture of Grant at the clinic about to be poked.  Can you tell?  Wow, how far we have come.  The picture above that is of Grant's team winning the championship game after Grant's walk-off triple the day after the clinic visit.  This is one tough kid (that loves baseball).  
Grant's clinic visits have been more of the same.  His counts remain high.  Dr. Heym says we aren't giving up on reaching that optimum range, so he continues to raise his chemo doses.  Grant seems to be handling it fine.  Now for the best news of all:  Grant only has one more month of chemo!  He has one more clinic visit on July 30th for his last dose of chemo there.  He will take his at-home chemo until Aug. 20th and then..........., that's it!  No more chemo!  I can't believe it is so close.  
Grant is ready to stop taking medicine every day.  But, he can't remember his life without it.  I am so excited and scared all in the same thought.  God has been so faithful through this entire process and I know he is still holding Grant right in the palm of His hand.  
Love this boy!!!
