And still counting. Justin was not able to have his routine monthly physical exams and blood draws in April and May due to the effects of COVID-19.
I remained calm but extra vigilant about watching for suspicious symptoms.
He continues to struggle with physical strength and stamina. But he also continues to improve little by little, slow but sure.
However, despite chemotherapy drugs being repeatedly injected directly into his spinal and brain fluid, his mind remains sharp as a whip. He continues to surprise me with high level reading comprehension, impressive vocabulary and calculating math problems in his head.
I am incredibly thankful for this, especially since my own mind seems to be growing dull as a butter knife.
I know there are much bigger issues than one little boy’s journey through leukemia, so I thank you for any amount of small or momentary prayer. And I hope you are encouraged by the evidence of Justin’s healing.
God is bigger than cancer. Grace be with us all.
