Happy Fourth of July. Mason has been looking forward to Fourth of July for the last few months, but he woke up with a 103.7 temperature. He was too sick to take his morning Chemo. And slept most of the day. He still had a temperature last night but was able to take his nightly Chemo. It really helps that after July 6 he gets a 2 week break from Chemo. This morning he is fever free!!! And the fireworks were rained out, so hopefully we will get to see them tonight!! The picture below was taken on July 1, for Mimi's birthday. Thank you for all the prayers!
Mason watched Superman 2 yesterday, how perfect a quote for today:

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
-- Christopher Reeve

We pray that today brings sunshine and that Mason feels a whole lot better. He is such a TROOPER! You all are! Love, Aunt Gail

Wonderful picture. I'm so glad that Mason is feeling better and what a blessing to have a two week break from the meds. Couldn't have come at a better time. Maybe those fireworks were rained out for a reason, so that Mason would be well enough to see them the next day when he was better. I hope you got to a show. That Superman quote is definitely timely.
