-God's Protection over Brandon with these complex issues
-The blessing of health care and the ability for treatment. We have some of the leading specialists in numerous fields consulting and visiting. The nurses have been absolutely phenomenal.
-God providing us strength. For Brandon's body, mind and spirit. For us caretakers to be his strength alongside him.
-Support God has provided to us through putting a need of ours on your hearts to meet, be it prayer, meals, child-care, lawn assistance, cleaning, fellowship, errands, chores, cards, gift cards, overnight help and more. Friends and family have been an essential part of this journey.
-Hope. Our hope must come from The Lord and His promises to us no matter what the circumstances. It's an extra blessing when our circumstances can give us some tangible hope as well. Brandon is slowly but surely turning the corner from this 5 week nightmare.
-Aria. What a blessing. She brings so much love and joy to us. She is a motivation for Brandon. She is a laid back baby, and nursing has gone very well despite all the odds against us.
-My health, again, despite all odds, has been fine. My lupus is in remission, a rarity after birth and among such intense stress. God has blessed us tremendously with this.
-My husband. He is so strong. The way he has faced this is truly inspiring. He has handled every step of this with faith, kindness, love and grace. God has used Brandon to strengthen me in this battle. His faith is so strong, and he is sharing it with everyone who is around him. God is working through him in beautiful ways.
-Pray for God to continue to bless us in all the ways expressed above.
-For healing from surgery with no complications and his GI system returning to optimal functioning
-For the cancer to be stagnant in this time of healing from surgery.
-For wisdom for all the doctors treating and consulting on Brandon's case.
-For continued progress in healing daily.
-For direction from God on our next treatment steps, and for Him to open or close doors to other treatment facilities and make all the pieces; timing, finances, etc. come together.
Thank you and God bless you all!
