Brock Rocks

Sick now and BIG day Friday.

Hi friends. Thank you for letting me pop in and out of here so sporadically and still coming back to check on my boy.

Oh it’s been a week. First Reese was sick. With lots of ralphing and diapers and ralphing and laundry and showers.


Then I made the mistake of telling Jay how shocked I was that in the 3+ years Brock’s been on treatment and alllll the times our family has had a tummy bug, he’s never gotten sick. Amazing!

You can guess what happened next.

We’re on day 3 of Brock being sick. The worst part is he has a fundoplication which makes it virtually (but not completely) impossible for him to vomit. He’s been vomiting over his fundo, which irritated his stomach/esophagus enough to cause it to bleed. Aaaaaaand that’s how he and Jay ended up celebrating New Year’s Eve in the ER.


They gave him some fluids and Zantac and sent him home, 6 hours later. He’s spent most of today on the couch.

Brock gets the majority of his calories through a feeding tube at night. Because he’s been so sick, he hasn’t gotten any formula since Saturday night. Pray with us that he can tolerate his feeds tonight.

Thankfully, Jay, Jaycie and I haven’t gotten sick. (Although Jaycie was pretty sad when the boys had to go to the ER on NYE.)


Brock gets chemo tomorrow and I have more to tell you about what’s happening Friday but it’s late. Tomorrow, friends.

Please pray for our friends, The McLaughlins. Their 7 year old daughter passed away right before Christmas. Our hearts have been so heavy for them.


  1. Sorry to hafr Brock has the bug, out to the prayer chain so we will be praying, didn’t realize he was still getting chemo.
