Spinal tap, lab results, and more chemo

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 9:04 pm

Thank you for praying for Brock today! The spinal tap went really well. The best part is he only has two more to get!

Last month they drew blood to test for a growth hormone deficiency and for thyroid function. Both of those came back in the normal range.

We’d appreciate your prayers this week as Brock starts a round of high dose steroids. The side effects are no fun. Also, please pray that God would protect him from any illness. His immune system is lower than its been in awhile (his AGC is 1800) and they’re increasing one of him chemo meds (methotrexate). Between that and the steroids I expect his AGC to drop even lower – putting him at a greater risk of infection.

Thank you for praying with us! I’ll be back later with updates about his feeding therapy.

Hope you’re enjoying your summer. School starts in 1 month. 😦

  1. So very grateful to the Lord that the spinal tap went well and trusting God to keep you going strong, sweet precious little buddy. ❤

    God's Heart is for you
    Think of it…You belong to a God
    who has no limitations.
    His provisions are endless,
    His blessings are measureless,
    and His generosity is boundless.
    All that is in His heart (for you)
    flows out in waves of love.

    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.
