For all my friends who have been praying and supporting me while caring for my brother, I wanted to let you know that the doctor told me this morning that his scan was not good. He could continue to do chemo, but it will only detract from his quality of life with little likely benefit, and the other option is no treatment and likely feeling better and being able to do things he enjoys for the nex...t few months. While I do believe in miracles and will continue to hope for that, I want to be practical as well - as I see death as but a transition to something better. I ask you to pray that his remaining time is peaceful and happy, that his pain is minimal, and that he is able to enjoy every minute he has left. Further, I ask you to pray for my physical and mental strength; pray for wisdom that I will speak the right words that will prepare him for this next journey, will give him hope for whatever comes; and for continuing joy as we walk through this time together. Thank you.
