Update on Jack

Thanks for the prayers for Jack. Today I found out that they're going to keep him on his current chemo. They don't like to use it because sometimes, the child will develop leukemia from it. But they're at the point where they don't have many choices. The steroids and other medications that he's on are helping the dizziness and double vision, so that's a blessing, though they too have side effects. His counts are starting to come back also so that's good.

They are going to keep him on these medications for two weeks and then check his counts and do another MRI. They're hoping that at that time they might be able to get him into a clinical trial somewhere.
Jack's Prayer
Venerable Louis and Zelie Martin, Servants of God,
You offered many prayers for your own sick children.
We unite our prayers with yours for Jack's healing.
May God look favorably on your intercession and, in His Mercy, grant us our request.
May His will be done in all things.

Venerable Louis and Zelie, pray for us!
