Thanks for all the prayers!  Ethan was discharged yesterday and was able to join us in taking Jordan back to college! 
Jordan settled in after a much needed dinner at Cheeburger and Yogoberries!  I would like a frozen yogurt place in Etown, please! J
Ethan is tired but doing well.  Please pray that mouth sores will not appear next week.  He also has a follow up CT scan and MRI next week which will tell us if the cancer has spread.  Up to now there has been no spreading that we can see, and we pray that these scans show the same.  Praise God for our faithful friends and family.  You are a blessing to us!  Love to all,

Our fastest admission ever yesterday! :) 

Everything went smoothly.  Ethan will not need to get another dose of the chemo that can cause hearing loss.  

The changes in hearing that he has had are at such a high frequency that there is no functional problem, but if he received any more of one specific drug, it could get worse.  
His doctor said that it was an easy decision to just sub in a different chemo drug.  

Too much detail, I know, but suffice it to say that this isn't a setback or major concern.  

Pray that Ethan will be discharged in time Sunday so we can all go with Jordan to take her back to college in the afternoon! 

Thanks for praying!

Update Wednesday, August 22

Well, Ethan has had some extra days at home because his admission was bumped a week. His audiogram results necessitated a possible change in chemo and his attending physician was out of town. So instead of last Friday, we will be heading to Hershey today. .. Not sure for what until we get there! We're thankful that Ethan at least got to go to his first day of classes today. He is taking two at a local Christian school and one at home. 

Huge praise that Ethan completed trig this week! One more nutrition lesson and we can update his transcripts and he is ready for college applications! Phew! Hard to believe!  

I'll post an update with news from today later. Thanks for your ongoing prayers that the mouth ulcers be kept at bay!! Pray for continued healing and no more delays. Thanks to you all!
