Words from Joshua's mom

Update from Nadene: (March 9)

Joshi's asleep with baby bear &getting his blood transfussion right now. His oncologist came by and he believes if he keeps on improving the way he is right now, that he won't need the feeding tube. He also said that his wbc, white blood cell count, is up from 0 to 54. He also said the tumor is much smaller & softer, which is great news! PTL! We love you and thanks for your continued prayers and support! ~Nadene {JLF~Matt. 18:5}

Joshua had to go back into the hospital because he had sores show up. And we know that with a low immune system, this can be fatal. So they are doing better and being encouraged. Here is a part of Nadene's update that I loved:

To our amazement, there is something called Magic Mouthwash. Joshua's mouth is doing much better since we started using this wonderful invention of medicine! Joshua felt well enough that he wanted some KFC last know...Kentucky Fried Chicken. I put in a call to Pappaw Bean and about 30 minutes later Pappaw was knocking at our door with the special delivery for our special little man, Joshua. This reminded me of these verses in the Bible...and they have been of great comfort lately. "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asked receives, and he wo seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8 I would encourage you to do a word study on this because the verb tenses in the greek version implies that it is a continuous action...meaning do not stop asking, seeking, or knocking. I just love remembering the Word that I've learned and want to encourage you all to get in the MEAT of the WORD!
