Brock Rocks

Brock had an appointment yesterday to check blood counts and to get iv chemo. He did great and all of his labwork came back normal! The fungal lab from two weeks ago was 0.2 – exactly where it needs to be. Praise the Lord! We’ll keep checking it every two weeks and he’ll have a ct scan in January to check on the status of the infection.

He has to go see the eye doctor at the end of January. We already know he has vision loss in his right eye because of the fungal infection, but we found out yesterday that one of the anti-fungal drugs that he’s been on for 2 years can damage the eyes as well.  Pray that his vision hasn’t gotten worse since we checked it last and that he will continue to adapt to the blindness in his right eye. He really does so well with it that Jay and I never even notice it or think about it.

Have you guys heard about this? Your kids can take a letter to any Macy’s store to mail to Santa. For every letter they receive, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $1 million. We’re extremely thankful for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and this is a fun easy way to give back!

Please pray for some very dear friends of ours. They have two daughters that are terminally ill: EK who is 6 years old and LB who is 2 months old. They both have the same genetic disorder. LB is in the hospital right now because of failure to thrive and because they can’t get her seizures under control. EK is at home right now but she’s sick as well. This family also has two healthy boys. My heart has been so heavy for them. Jay and I know how extremely difficult it is to be living in the hospital during Christmas time. It’s hard to see your sick children hurting and it’s hard to leave your healthy children behind at home. It’s hard to not be 1 family under 1 roof. Please pray for EK and LB’s health. Pray for strength for the parents and pray for understanding for the 2 healthy children at home.



  1. Good morning sweet precious Brock, thinking of you and asking the Lord to surround you with His loving healing protection, especially for your eyes. May the Lord keep EK & LB safe and protected in His healing hands as well.

    Hope this video will bring some smiles.

    Isaiah 58:8
    Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
