Second time's a charm


Well, let's hope the second time's a charm!
Week 1 of training starts next week.  Yikes!

You may remember that last year I tore my Achilles and was unable to run.  We still managed to be one of the top 25 fundraising teams for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, where Keegan sees his rheumatologist, Dr. Punaro.  I have signed up as a fundraiser again this year, but they are structuring the pages a little differently it seems.  I will let y'all know when our K's for Keegan team is set up for donations. 

 Thank you to all who responded with interest in K's for Keegan tshirts also.  I placed the order last week, and we should get the initial set soon.  Due to the number that ordered, we were able to score an awesome discount.  I included a few extra of each size, so don't worry if you missed the first round.  If we get more interest, we can place a second order too!

Keegan has had a pretty good week.  He seems to have rebounded a little bit.  His counts were mostly back to his normal (still low but his "normal") last Friday, so we stopped the GCSF injections.  We will draw labs again tomorrow, and we're praying that they have stayed stable.  Yesterday, he completed his evaluation with the neuropsychologist.  She will be able to help us interpret the news from the neurologist of the atrophy seen on Keegan's most recent brain scans.  Obviously, Gray and I are nervous to get her results next week, even though we know what is probably coming.  Knowing doesn't necessarily make it easier to swallow.  As always, we would love for you to join us in prayer for good news on both fronts.  Thank you so much, y'all.  

Let us run with perseverance the race before us, 
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfector of our faith.
For the joy set before Him, he endured the cross, scorning its shame,
and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Consider Him who endued such opposition from sinners,
so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
-Hebrews 12:1--3
