Up Date on Arthur

Hi I wanted to let every one know about Arthur's new location for care and his condition at this time.
Arthur is now going to Legacy Emanuel Children's Hospital in Portland Oregon. The last time Arthur received chemo was 30 days ago. Most of the time Arthur is scheduled to receive chemo every two weeks. At this time the Doctors are waiting as his blood counts have been to low to start any new chemo. He was taken to Emanuel today with a fever. Most likely he will be coming home tomorrow as he is still not well enough to receive treatment. Arthur has been through so much pain with the treatments non stop digestive problems and his struggle to gain weight and strength. Not a night has gone by in 7 months, that the family hasn't had to get up with Arthur to attend to Arthur's pain and multiple diaper changes.This is just a glimpse of the struggles the family faces every day. They know that with out all the wonderful support they would not be able to provide the care their sweet little Arthur's needs.
Thank you for keeping Arthur and family close in prayer, as always staying strong in the healing power of prayer, Arthur and Family
