My Family Is Struggling (Updated)

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I knew he wasn't feeling well yesterday. He didn't smile when I took him his blankie. He didn't want his bus (his favorite of all toys). He wasn't jabbering or singing (a very loud hummmmmmmm). He's so ill emoticon

He isn't healing. Actually, his incision area is healing but his insides are not. If anything, he is worse. A test performed on Monday evening showed distention in both the small and large intestines. I was wondering why the Dr. that came in was questioning us about his biological/familial background with cancer. That word has never even been mentioned or on our thought radar. So, of course, when I got home, I did what you shouldn't do unless you want to be frightened beyond reason. . .I googled it! A distention in the large intestine is rare and is indicative of many things but the most prominent reason is cancer.

.Oh. My. Freakin'. Goodness!

Okay, it is hopefully something else, like diverticulitis, or a twist there, or whatever. . .


PLEASE GOD...DON'T LET IT BE CANCER! Not for him. Give it to me. I'll take it. I'd take his place right now if it would only bring him good health and bring him home! He's been through so much in his young life! I know God has his reasons and we shouldn't question so I'm not. I just ask that He let me take my brother's place. Let him be well.

***Thank You God!*** It isn't cancer but there is a definite blockage in the large intestine. His surgery has been scheduled for Friday afternoon.
And THANK YOU to all who have commented and lifted prayers for him and for my entire family. They are greatly appreciated and definitely welcomed!

    I see at the end that it's NOT cancer. THANK YOU GOD! :) What a wonderful thing prayer is. :) He will be in my prayers for his surgery and the family will too.

    Dear Father, we bow in Your presence to praise and thank You for the blessing on your son. Please be with his doctor's during the surgery and give them the knowledge and skill they need to do Your work and bring this child back to health. Please also wrap Your loving arms around his family and bless them with peace and calmness and the strength to get through this. In the Name of Your Most Holy Son, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

    emoticon My husband had stomach cancer and then a year later he had it in his vocal cord.

    Even if it is cancer, it is treatable! So don't be scared. You need to be strong, because if it is cancer, you need to find the best cancer hospital so he can get the best treatment!

    My husband had the late stages of cancer the first time (it runs in his family). He was on his death bed! And his mom took him to a hospital called City of Hope, which is a hospital and cancer research center.

    He is alive and well, and it has been 5 years since! So be strong, cancer is not a death sentence!

    Let's hope it is not cancer, but if it is, please know that there are many treatments that work! My husband is a twice survivor!

    My thoughts are with you and your family!
