I just wanted to write a quick blurb to ask for prayer. James had an appointment yesterday at MDA, and we found that the upcoming treatment is not what we had thought. It was a simple misunderstanding, but anyway, James will have a brief respite from intense chemotherapy until next Wednesday. Then chemo intensifies and new chemo drugs are introduced. His counts will drop again during this time and he can potentially get sick (leading to hospitalization). Thus, we will not be able to travel during Thanksgiving or Christmas to see Joy's family and we will not be able to return to church anytime soon. Though we are sad, James' wellness is our first priority. We will be posting more about his upcoming treatment schedule soon, but on to the second prayer request.
We received a form letter yesterday regarding the newborn blood test that was performed on Adrianne one week after birth. This letter said that she may be at risk for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). This is not good, and this letter is not a confirmation that she has CAH. We will likely need further testing. PLEASE pray earnestly that this test is WRONG and that Adrianne does not have CAH. As I write this, my heart is heavy and we feel overwhelmed. We know God is so good and in control. We have to give this to Him because we are truly unable to take this on without Him. We will keep you updated as we find out more. Thank you for your prayer and ongoing support!
