For those of you who are not on Facebook, I want to share my post from this morning. We have arrived in Knoxville with the family, settled in pretty well, and Scott had his first treatment yesterday (Monday.) I have been trying to find time to update everyone, but writing time is a challenge at the moment. But we have an urgent need for prayer, so I’m sharing my Facebook post here:
“Asking for urgent prayer. Scott began having some fairly significant side effects during the night last night — side effects that we have been told to expect, but not until later in his treatment. Because of this, we changed our plans for the day and I came with him to his treatment this morning where we will meet with his doctor to decide if something needs to be changed. (I had planned to just stay at the house and do school with the kids most days.) We are here now, but as we were trying to get Scott to the back for his treatment, we got a text from the kids saying that Caelyn is suddenly very sick. It sounds like another bowel obstruction. We expect that she needs to get to the ER at the Children’s Hospital here asap (unless this clears on its own as it did back in October), but we can’t do anything until we get back to the house. We have written to her colorectal nurses in Cinci and are waiting to hear back from them. We need a miracle. We really need this obstruction to clear out by itself. We need an army of prayer warriors just now. Please share.
We will update as soon as we are able. Thank you for any and all prayers.
