Weekend Update

Xavian had a good day yesterday. He's looking good and seems to be feeling well. He laughed, sat up, and wiggled about a lot today. His Methotrexate levels are going down at a faster pace than during the first attempt at Round 2, so that is a blessing. Allison, our nurse practitioner, feels like the Methotrexate should clear his system by Sunday, which will be good because Xavian can then receive the remaining chemo medications in the protocol.

Not much else to report at this point. There are a ton of wet diapers to change due to the fact that Xavian is being given lots of fluids so that he doesn't get dehydrated and so the Methotrexate will clear his system more quickly. I changed about six diapers each of the last two nights.

Keep the prayers coming. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
