Brock Rocks

“Amen!”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 3:07 pm

Yay!  Brock got to go to church today for the first time in…I honestly can’t remember how long.  And!  He did fantastic!  Which is really surprising, given the fact that it’s steroid week.

B had a clinic appointment last Wednesday. 
– c diff is gone!  praise the Lord!
– he got iv chemo through his port
– his blood pressure has been kind of high the last several months so they’re referring him to a nephrologist we saw last january when he was inpatient.
– they finally decided to let us give him an appetite stimulant.  he literally eats nothing so hopefully this will help.  we start that on tuesday (after we finish steroids)
– he goes back in 2 weeks for lab work and then 2 more weeks for chemo and a spinal tap

Brock is saying SO MANY new words lately!  I love hearing him talk.  He’ll try to mimic almost anything you say and he consistently says mama, dada, sissy, ball, up, down, bye bye, papa, remi (our dog), thank you, hot, cold, baby, love you, elmo, go, hold, all done, uh oh, car, bird, phone, and amen (he’s obsessed with praying lately).  No one can ever eat around Brock without him clasping his hands and trying to tell them to pray first.  I’m sure it doesn’t sound like a lot of words for a 2 year old, but just a few months ago he wasn’t saying anything!  Next step: walking.  I hope, because MAN he’s getting heavy to carry around.

Praises:
– we’ve been home for so long
– he’s had a few colds but hasn’t had a fever over 101 and had to go to the hospital
– that he’s making so much progress with speech

Prayer Requests:
– that everything’s fine with his kidneys/blood pressure
– that he will EAT
– that he’ll start walking

  1. Hallelujah!!!!! I’m so happy for all the new speech he’s showing. That is a big deal. So happy he’s making such huge progress and I continue to pray for him until the Great Physician has made him completely healthy and whole. Praise God!

  2. Wow such great news! He will be walking in no time. Look at the difference from his talking a few months ago. Asher was evaluated by soonerstart to be at a 10 month level. He’s been walking for a while but just says hi and momma (only when he’s mad) considering what brock has been thru I think he’s doing amazingly well.he’s one tough cookie!
