Brock Rocks

well, brock got everyone a little nervous/panicky last night when he dropped his sats to first 74 and then later 62.  we put him on oxygen overnight but he’s been fine on room air all day today.  we did an xray in the middle of the night and it looked pretty good for him, so i have no idea what made him desat.  maybe b/c his hemaglobin was low again.  he’ll probably get blood tomorrow.

his AGC was 20 today.  two. zero. (it’s supposed to be over 1,000).   pray that it starts coming up soon!

he got chemo today and started steroids again.

so keep praying everything that you’re praying…that the fungal infection won’t get worse, that he won’t get a new infection, that his AGC, hemaglobin, and platelet counts will all go up, that God will protect his different body systems during this time and help them to function properly.

body systems??  is that even a phrase?  i think the sleep deprivation is getting to me.

pray for jaycie too.  she’s really having a hard time with brock being inpatient this time.  it’s definitely harder (on all of us) this time around that it was before.  because we know what it’s like to be home now.


  1. We’re praying! I know that’s what I always comment, but that’s what we can do, and that’s what we’re doing. Please let us know if you need anything, and I’m sure someone can help. Even if it’s a little thing like mowing the lawn. We love you guys.

  2. Maybe I’ll just whip up that soundtrack for you guys to kick some butt (or ‘howny’ as Katie calls it)…hang in there, Hart family. You can do this! Martin family is pulling for all of you.

  3. Maybe Jaycie could have one of those wipeable boards in her room where she could draw pictures for Brock when he comes home or draw her family, her school, whatever for Brock. Sometimes drawing out their feelings helps.
    Lately I have felt like I’m a kid in the backseat of God’s car being impatient and nagging him about things I want to happen in my life. My devotional today was from Genesis 13:9-13 about Lot making poor choices and how Abram let God choose for him and how Abram saw it in its true light.” I’ve always felt you guys have seen this situation with Brock in it’s true light. This is not to say that you haven’t questioned, screamed, cried and begged God for Brock, but that at the end of the day, you’ve always put it in God’s hands. Brock’s life, no matter how long it is, will have been and will always be a witness to the glory of God. You have done this for all of us…led by example…and our faith has been strengthened by your witness. Every parent wants their child to be happy, safe, healthy and whole. Brock’s life has been about fighting for survival. Don’t give up. Rest when you can and don’t let the sun go down without telling the people you love that you love them.
    Praying for peace beyond understanding for you, rest in the Lord and, as always, healing for Brock.
    With love,
    Vicky and Sam Bass

  7. praying for you, jay, jaycie and brock. totally expecting God to heal and provide! and i completely thought body systems is a legitimate phrase. also, reading this blog is like science class…i learn something new everyday! hang in there, you are such beautiful woman! (i love being told i’m pretty, don’t you?!)

    • thanks friend. i usually like explaining the science-y part…but i’ve been to weary lately. i just think “eh, if they’re lost (and care enough) they can google it.”
