Brock Rocks

The oncologist that we talked to yesterady said that there was some disagreement about how the xray from the ER looked.  He pulled up lots of recent xrays (before and after surgery and the ones from the ER) and he said he didn’t think the one from the ER looked any different.

He also said it could be withdrawl from the morphine that was making him so cranky so he wrote us a new rx and a weaning plan that we can do at home.

Brock’s been only slightly less fussy today.  I’m starting to wondering if it’s plain old separation anxiety.  He cries every time I put him down and that’s totally out of character for him.  Who knows.  We’re so used to dealing with sick-kid stuff that the normal-kid stuff doesn’t even cross out minds.

Thank you so much for praying with us during this time of surgery and recovery.  I am completely amazed and grateful at how God answered those prayers.  Things could have gone SO much worse than they did.  The fact that he didn’t need to be on a ventilator after surgery: miracle.  The fact that he his breathing wasn’t labored and he wasn’t in distress: miracle.  The fact that we were home four days after surgery: miracle!  God is so good and we’re so thankful for how he’s continuing to work in Brock’s life.  I pray that Jay and I are living our lives in a way to give Him all the glory for the things he’s done…and I pray that Brock will someday do the same.


  1. I think you and Jay are AMAZING parents. To balance the needed time with Brock and keeping Jaycee so well rounded. It is amazing. The Lord is with you every step of the way. Give both of those beautiful children a big HUG for me.

  3. You and Jay are doing an amazing job, I am AMAZED at your strength and your great attitudes about everything, i haven’t heard you guys complain once! God really does help us when we ask, it’s so awesome to see. (: So glad Brock is home, and Jett does the same thing sometimes so hopefully that is all it is!

  5. GOD: Miracle!!! 🙂
    You and your family are in our prayers everyday. Brock is a special soul and the Lord has a plan for him, and the rest of you(even if we cannot see it yet). The strength and faith you have even when times are tough are a testament to you both. God Bless.

  6. Maybe it’s just something in the air that’s making him cranky…. Sophie has been doing the exact same thing to me the past several days and I don’t know what is going on with her (except I think she’s cutting more teeth…. that seems to be never ending with her!). Anyway, I know it’s frustrating. If Jaycie ever needs a break (translation, if you just want to have one less kid to deal with for awhile) and she’d like to come play with the girls, send her over! Our door is always open! 🙂 Love you guys! Always praying for more miracles….
