Hebrews 4:12 - 5:1

12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens,
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.

15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-- yet was without sin.
16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Kenny was feeling a left out with the new admit of the chickens – and not to mention Rocky the Squirrel. If you will recall, the same thing happened when we got the Rabbits and the two Cats. So, I told him if it would make him feel better, we could put his mug on the blog today.

The doctor visit went well. The liver enzyme numbers are a little off as well as RBC, WBC, etc. I did get a Neupogen shot to boost my white count. That made for a tough night even with the pain pills. It some how effects your body and causes back, hip and leg ‘bone pain’. I may be getting a PET/CT scan next week. We will see.

Today is a new day, however. Have any of you heard the new song on 92.7 FM, “This is my New Dawn”, by a guy named Kirkley. It is an awesome song. Here’s the funny thing about the song. The other day, I was typing in all of the poems I thought I had lost a few weeks ago. This song came on – the very first time I had heard it – as I was typing in this line of a poem “…before dawn”. I thought that was a bit unusual. Of course, I stopped and then listened to it and have heard it several times since.
God bless. . . George

My mother used to get Neulasta shots to up her WBC which I believe is similar to Neupogen. Her dr. told her to take 24 hr. clairiten (over the counter) 2 times per day starting the day before her shot and for 2 or 3 days after. He said this would help prevent bone pain which is associated with the shot and that they didn't know why the clairiten works only that it does. It really did work for her, she never experienced any problems from the shot. Anyway, just a tip in case it works the same for Neopagen. My mom's dr was Dr. Hansen at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.

Hey George,
I'd take Christi's tip about the Clariton if ever you have to have another shot. Sounds like some good advice and one that has been tried and proven true.
I didn't know you had a Kenny. How long have you had him? My goodness, it's almost like you have a miniature farm including vegetables etc. It's awesome! I'm sure it helps keep your mind off of things having to maintain and cultivate everything. Plus it provides food for your family, including rabbit.(poor rabbits)
Know that we love and support you Big time and many prayers are going up for you each day.
Phil 4:6-8
