Brock Rocks

We’re still here. Things have been going so well for the past few months and honestly it’s been nice to not HAVE to update about anything.

There’s plenty I could tell you about, though. The 2 year anniversary of his diagnosis, Brock’s 3rd birthday, and what he thinks of his new baby sister who was born exactly one week ago. I promise I’ll be back soon to fill you in on everything.

Buttonight I’m asking for prayer for a few things. Brock has a spinal tap and chemotherapy in the morning. He also starts a round of steroids. Pray that the spinal tap goes well and that the side effects from the steroids aren’t too horrible.

Also, remember back in August when everyone got nervous about Brock’s fungal lab being elevated? Well, it’s high again – higher than we’ve ever seen it. I think it was 1.something back in August and the last one we tested was almost 5. Normal is around 0.2. They’re going to draw the lab again tomorrow. Please pray that it’s back to normal. Pray that the fungal infection isn’t getting worse. Pray for wisdom for the doctors about how to treat him.

Thank you for praying for us even though we’ve been so ‘quiet’ the last few months.


  1. Pray for you V

  6. I was just talking to my sister, who has also been praying for Brock, how long it’s been since I’ve heard something and said what a praise it is–there have been times that it took more than once a day to keep up even somewhat. Knew that baby must be coming soon, but can’t believe she’s here. I would guess that Jaycee is pretty proud, too. Praise the Lord yet again!!!! Will be praying on this fungal mess, boy, it would be nice to have it just go away. The Lord has been SO good. I’m praying for you all to have some extra strength to deal with whatever it is that it turns out life is throwing at you this time. Hug and kiss all three wonderful, beautiful blessings for me please.
