i hate trying to think of a title for each udpate

– AGC was zero yesterday.  it’s up to 90 today.  thank you, God!

– his belly is getting bigger so we did an xray of it yesterday.  figured we might as well xray his lungs while we were at it.  nothing significant showed up on the abdominal xray.  lung xray showed a tiny bit of something on his lower left lung.  could be pneumonia (he’s already on the right antibiotics for it), could be a little collapsed from the thoracotomy (where they removed part of his lung).

– the skin around his g-j tube is pretty red and irritated.  so they cultured it yesterday and also did an ultrasound of it to see if there was a build of up fluid underneath it.  there wasn’t.  praise the Lord!  don’t know anything about the cultures yet.  they’re having the infectious disease doctor consult on him b/c of it.

– today is his last day of iv chemo for awhile.  yay!  he gets oral chemo until sunday and then that’s it for delayed intensification!

– he’s been really happy and playful the past two day and we’re so thankful!  he waves bye bye to everyone now (and if he’s tired of a doctor/nurse/therapist being there he waves bye before they’re even ready to leave).  he’s also started lifting his hands up in the air and shrugging his shoulders when you say “where’s daddy?”  or “where’s sissy?” or “where’s miss amy?”  or “where’s (insert any name/object)”  so. stinkin’. cute.  i’ll try to get a picture of it soon.

– God is so good.  on wednesday we got a bill in the mail from the hospital for $85.  we also got a refund check from my eye doctor for $95.  (i can’t even remember the last time i went to the eye doctor…much less paid him any money)


  1. I love seeing God give us exactly what we need exactly when we need it. And I LOVE! seeing him do miracles with Brock!

  4. Isn’t is just awesome the way God makes money appear just when we need it the most? So happy he did that for you and that Brock has been happy the past few days. The little guy should enjoy a time of happiness and joy for a season. Praying for continued healing and a complete and total restoration of Brock’s health.

  6. Even though I realize that we are helpless, I also know that all our hope and help comes from God. Father, please heal this precious little boy soon. The fact that he has survived so many things since October proves You are working mightedly in his life. Please continue to give wisdom to his doctors and nurses, strength, hope, and peace to his family and friends.

  8. God is good! GOD IS GREAT!!! looks like you are 10 bucks to the good. And I’ve been worrying about all the medical expenses you’v been incurring. And I’m so pleased to know Brock is developing his social skills. It must thrill your heart to see him happy. Praise God! Love Aunt Connie

  9. I follow your blog, ever since Emily Townley forwarded it to me and asked me to pray for you.
    I just want to let you know I do pray for you and I am ever inspired by your blog updates. I have never met you or Brock, but my heart fills with joy when you have positive news, and my heart breaks when it is less then positive news. I am praying for you and your family. You fill me full of faith and grace with your updates. You have such a positive outlook on everything and I know that isn’t easy.
