Hi all.

Day 3 of chemo is complete.  We will be starting Day 4 of chemo tomorrow, alongside Day 2 of radiation.  He tolerated the chemo very well today.  Otto had a better night last evening.  He slept longer in bits and had less coughing attacks.

Today we discovered that his cutis is now forming on the inside of his mouth.  This can make eating a little challenging, so we are headed back to soft, easy to chew foods.  Otto is such a trooper!

Towards the end of the afternoon, we were noticing signs of some internal bleeding.  He's getting some platelets along with plasma to help with the bleeding.  We are thinking the bleeding could possibly be a result of all the coughing episodes he has endured over the last few days. 

We continue to pray for healing.  We thank you for your prayers, too!

Mark, Leigh, Otto, Tess and Lulu
