Emily spoke with one of our doctor’s this morning. They had a very good and honest and hard conversation. He told her he is 95% sure Trey will not survive. Medically speaking, he just does not see being able to get the abnormal cells under control. Emily and I both feel though that if the Lord did a miracle now, our doctors would absolutely know it was Him. We are still trusting God for a miracle. The doctor gave us two options:
1. We take Trey home and keep him comfortable until the Lord calls him home; or
2. We try one more treatment option that might help get these cells in remission.
Emily and I are both in agreement that we need to try this new treatment. It is a 5 day chemotherapy regimen that has worked in some rare cases with children to get cancer in remission. It, like every other drug, carries significant risks and side effects, but it may serve as a quick bridge to get Trey into remission and to the next transplant. Emily and I feel strongly that we need to try this. So, we are going to, and it will begin tomorrow.
I cannot stress enough how much we need to trust the Lord. Emily and I, and our family, and all journeying with us, are in a battle…and we just need to trust the Lord! Please pray for tremendous wisdom for us and the doctors; pray for tremendous peace for our whole family, especially Trey; pray for an extra measure of grace from God…and keep begging, crying out and pleading with the Father for a miracle. Join us in wearing out the throne of heaven as we petition God to do the miraculous. We know our God alone is able and we trust Him to reach down from heaven and bring incredible life to Trey!!! Oh Lord, please heal Trey!
Our hearts are heavy! The emotional pain is deep! BUT, God is giving us what we need moment by moment. Emily and I are both at peace, and we know God will accomplish what is best for Trey…and NO MATTER WHAT, we will say, “Blessed be the name of the Lord!”
