He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

A Little Blood Never Hurt Anyone

Joshua recieved his blood and platelets today. His platelet count was down to 11 so he was in great need of some of those. He very well may need more of them by the end of the weekend. We have another appointment scheduled for Tuesday for a count check to see how he is doing. We are waiting for his ANC to get back to 1500 before we can stop giving him the GCSF shots in his legs. He knows exactly what's coming every night. He is finally at the age where he can tell us his thoughts. His comments are usually, "I don't want an ouchie" or "It's gonna hurt." Breaks our hearts.

Adam and Noah got to spend the day swimming and being outside. They are both so exhausted by the end of the day that they usually crash and crash hard. Sort of like Jeff and I do but we at least try to climb into bed first. Noah's soccer coach called today and he will soon be starting practice. He is really excited. Jeff and I are really excited for him as well. I can't wait to watch his first game. Of course, Adam will be doing his best to get out there as well and won't understand why he can't play. The twins love to kick the ball around too and are actually really good at it. Look out world when all three Czorapinski boys get on to the field.

I love the new site! It is like growing up just like the kids! Joshua, every time you say Aunt Paula it makes me smile. I love hearing what you have to tell me and show me. Noah, you are always my buddy and I can't wait to see you in a soccer game. You are going to be great. Adam, you are just so loving and I appreciate you loving my cookies. I promise I will make you more cookies soon! As for you Ami and Jeff, what would I have done without you and your family all these years. You are my family and I thank you both for welcoming Mike into it. You both me the world to me and I know no matter what we will all always be there for each other!

I like to color choice and the layout of the new site! Of course, having pictures of the boys is great too! I especially like how you can tell multiple things at once all onthe same page. This was an awesome idea. KUDOS!

LOVE YOU, JOSHUA!!
