Update on Luke

Thank you to all for keeping little Luke in your prayers and thoughts. He is still at the hospital but Meghan and Ben were given new hope this week. Luke's tumor has a favorable histology which basically means the cure rate is much higher than an unfavorable type. He will undergo chemotherapy for six weeks with the hopes of shrinking the tumor in order to surgically remove it. We were able to spend some time with them on Saturday and Luke had his moments where he forgot about the circumstances on hand - he put puzzles together and even counted for us. As Meghan puts it, "it's the little things that they rejoice in!" This will be a long process for both Luke and the family - please continue to keep them in your prayers and thoughts! We know our God has His hand in this situation! Below is a message from Kennedy to Luke. She woke up from her nap on Friday with Luke on her mind. I quickly caught her message to him!
