Wes and Jackie provided this update for Nate and requested these specific prayer requests. He went back to Children's today to start another round of Chemo. This is a treatment of Cisplatin which has caused him to throw up more and become dehydrated. Nate no longer has the feeding tube and is chewing food more now. Please pray that Nate continues to eat so that he does not have to go back to the tube. The Dr's will let him go home on Thursday this week but it will depend on if he continues to be sick and if he is dehydrated. This treatment is also known for hearing loss and the Dr's will test for any hearing loss as well. He has already lost the ability to hear very high pitched sounds, so please pray that he does not lose any more hearing. Following this, he will return to the every other day of outpatient chemo. He is also trying very hard every day with his physical therapy that he goes to at Our Children's House. Please continue to pray for Nate, Wes & Jackie during these days ahead. "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Pet 5:7.
