As expected, Trey numbers are going down. This is a good thing, but it also means he is HIGHLY susceptible to infection and even the smallest infection could be very serious for Trey. Please pray he stays incredibly protected during this time. He has two more days of chemo left and then we watch and see what happens. We are praying desperately for the abnormal cells to stay suppressed right now…and thankfully, so far they are!!! Glory to God!
When Trey was on the Campath recently, the Campath would knock the abnormal cells down for a day or two, but then they would come right back up. So far, with this current chemo treatment, they cells are staying very low! We just need them to stay low when the treatment is over…which will hopefully allow Trey to get to the next transplant! Please Lord we ask in faith!!!
Another good thing is that Trey will probably be off ALL oxygen today. This is a very good thing. His lungs have healed nicely and he seems to be holding his own. We pray his lungs will keep staying healthy.
So, here are the big things to pray for:
1. No infections!
2. Bad cells to STAY suppressed!
3. Lungs to keep healing!
4. For him to get out of bed and strengthen his lungs and legs!
5. For his appetite to increase! We need him to start eating and drinking!
I will say…so far things are looking good. Of course, we do not ever get too excited because things could change in a heartbeat. However, we are trusting in our UNCHANGING God to meet our every need…and to keep holding Trey.
I read these Scriptures this morning…and I can say I know this to be true!
“If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life (Psalm 119:92-93).”
