20th Day of Induction

Yesterday’s spinal tap results have come back and there is still leukemia in Jesse’s spinal fluid.  This is the third time in a row it’s come back 1%.

The doctors feel his body has built up a resistance to the spinal injected Methotrexate and they would like to add the chemo AraC to the combination this Friday.  Well, that brings up a concern…

It was the Methotrexate & AraC that was given back at the end of January that caused the renal failure, chemo toxicity and neurological damage.  The only reason we are considering it is because it’s a small dose and the Methotrexate they have been using is not enough alone.

We have until tomorrow to decide.

    Dear Jesus, please give Jesse and his family the discernment to make the best decision about whether to proceed or not with the AraC. Guide them into the right decision. In Jesus Name, Amen.

    Dear Lord, please give Jesse and his family a little extra measure of strength. We feel near the point of exhaustion, and you are the one and only who provides the relief Jesse, his family, his friends so deperately need. Thank you Lord for your gift of healing our unexpected, continous enduring suffering and pain. We accept your grace, your mercy, your love one day at a time. Our hearts are light, our faith in you is forever. Lord, we grieve for the suffering Jesse is facing. We all want earthly treasures, but we gladly give them up for your gift of healing, your blessings, your eternal love for your servant Jesse. Give the power of healing to the physicians and caregivers who minister to your children. O God, stay very close to Jesse and his loved ones and give them your blessing. In Christ, hermann

    Jesse, My very good friend Scott E. shared your story with me. My heart is heavy reading your journey. There are so many kids fighting when they should just be enjoying being kids. My son Lane fought a horrible “monster” Rhabdomyosarcoma for 2 1/2 years. Wanted you to know that we will have you in our prayers. I’m also sending in the most caring group of individuals you could ever meet to cover you in prayers, they are “Team Lane”. Prayers & hugs to you & your family.

    Hi Jessie,
    I saw a prayer request for you on Facebook so I came by to let you know I will be praying for you and for your parents to make the correct decision concerning which direction to walk in. Know with so many people interceding for you the decision you make is the one God wants you to do, have faith in Him.

    My Father,
    You are the great Healer and Creator of all. You are in control and as You Word says if two or more people agree on a thing it will be done. Daddy, there are more than two people agreeing on Your guidance for the decision to be made concerning the direction in choice of medicine to be taken. You, my God, control the process and show Jessie and his family the right choice. Blessings Lord, I ask for Your blessings to fall down on Jessie and for Your Holy Spirit to burn this leukemia out of Jessie’s body. Let Your living Spirit pass through Jessie’s blood system and bone marrow and cleanse him from this disease. Thank You Father. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

    Praying and praying,
    <
