I had to leave Trey today to come back to Oklahoma for my mother in law’s funeral tomorrow. I hated to leave Trey, but really needed to get home to be with Emily.
I left Trey in good hands though. My mom is there, along with our children’s minister and Trey’s oldest brother, Caleb. He also has the nurse he is most familiar with and who handles Trey great. They all told me that Trey had a good day today. That was a tremendous relief for me and made me smile.
Trey has been having some fevers recently though, which I hope is related to the chemo and not an infection or the abnormal cells. When I left this morning, he still had a temp, but apparently rallied and had a good day. I am heading back tomorrow and will be there for a couple of days until Emily and I switch. I will be back with my church family on Sunday preaching a special message entitled: See the Unseen, from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. Please keep praying for Trey…these next 7-10 days will tell us a lot about what we are facing. Please pray the abnormal cells stay suppressed and that Trey stays protected. Pray God keeps working miracles in his little life!
Tomorrow will be a hard day though. Tomorrow, we will celebrate a tremendous life…the life of my wife’s mother. I grew very close to Cynthia in the time I knew her and had some incredible conversations with her in the final months of her life. Tomorrow I will be sharing about the far reaching impact she had in my life and the lives of so many others. Please pray that the Lord is high and lifted up and that anyone who does not know Christ will come to know Him tomorrow.
The service is at 10am at First Baptist Newcastle and I would appreciate your prayers. Cynthia was one of the most special people I have ever known. She will be missed greatly, but I, along with our family, celebrate the fact that she is completely FREE in every way in the very presence of God! I look forward to seeing her again!
