This came on our prayer chain this morning. Information from this post.
Brian has been admitted this evening to Sac*red He*art Ho*spital in Pen*sacola. Prayer is needed as tomorrow (Wednesday) he will have the medi-port put in to use for blood work and chemo. He will have to be sedated during this procedure. He will also have an MRI and a Cat Scan tomorrow to determine the extent of the effect the blood disorder has had on his organs and bones. Please pray that the damage and affect has been limited to his skin. Please also remember Freddie and Carrie and Brian's siblings: A, W& O.
There is a praise in all of this - it turns out that Brian's pediatric oncologist is Ricky & Julie Le*Fil's (a couple from our church who are now in Pen*sacola) brother-in-law and therefore Freddie and Carrie have been able to get lots of direct and extra access to him in all of this and feel good knowing the doctor is not a complete stranger.
Depending on the results of the tests tomorrow the chemo could begin as early as the end of this week. The amount and frequency will also be determined based on the results of the tests tomorrow (Wednesday) as well.
Brian is doing great in all of this but tomorrow is going to potentially be a tough day for him and Freddie & Carrie.
I always stand amazed at the way God works. This family has not been living in Pen*sacola long. But here they are not only with a doctor who has seen other cases of this very rare blood disease, but also have a friend's brother in law as one of their doctors!
Please lift this entire family whenever you think about them. Thanks!
