Psalms 133:1 How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
Seriously, I am grateful today more for what God is doing for my older kids than for what He is doing for Ruby today. (And He is very present in Ruby's moment!) Today is the third day that I have not seen my kids in person. The third day in a row that they have gotten off of the bus with a different family and stayed with that family through dinner at least until Lehr could get them and take them home to bed. Even though these three particular families are close friends who happen to be awesome parents and who also have great kids that Eli and Maddux love, three families in three days is a lot of change-up for the kids. But I swear to you that the kids could not be in better hands. They are loving the glimpse into other families' every day lives and dinner routines, and they are being loved loved loved. And when I get a text or a photo at 2:30 each afternoon, my heart swells. How good it is, indeed!!
Good news: Ruby will not have a bone marrow biopsy at Day 14, as originally planned. Her numbers are good enough for us to wait until Day 28 (which *should* be after we go home!). So far, Ruby is tolerating chemo well; she is still eating and playing. She is more fatigued, but only slightly. She is not drinking much at all, but with her still being on IV fluids, they are not concerned about that.
