GRAYSON IS HOME!!!!!!! After being re-admitted to the hospital Sunday Gray is finally home again Thursday night!! During his stay in the hospital, Gray’s doctors ran tests to try and figure out why he was so lethargic and refusing to eat or drink. All of his blood tests came back normal! He didn’t even need a blood transfusion! That, we were happy about…but we were still nervous and anxious because Gray wouldn’t eat, drink or get out of bed. He definitely wasn’t himself. All we could do, though, was watch and wait. The doctors kept him on an IV and told us he was extremely dehydrated. Dehydration, exhaustion, side effects of chemo…whatever it was we had never seen anything like this before. The nurses kept telling us it was fairly normal but we couldn’t belp but be a bit nervous. It never gets easier to see your baby boy confined to a hospital bed without the will to even get up and walk around. Today, though, Gray made a miraculous recovery!! He ate, he drank and he had a dirty diaper!! Ha!! To most this may not be much of an accomplishment but Gray hadn’t had a dirty diaper in 10 days!! To us, this was a BIG deal!! We have to celebrate EVERY victory these days, even the seemingly small ones!! Today, not only are we celebrating Gray’s recovery but we are also celebrating being home together as a family. (Sigh of relief!) The scheduled hospital stays are hard enough to get through as a family but the unexpected ones are worse. Trying to balance caring for our sick child, giving quality and quantity attention to our oldest son, taking time for ourselves and setting aside whatever is left for each other?? Well there isn’t even a word to describe what that is like. Overwhelming, dauting, frustrating, exhausting…none of them do it justice. All of those feelings take a back seat tonight, though, as we are all under one roof, sleeping in the same house. And that’s just what we’re planning to do, sleep! Thank you all for your prayers this week and always. We are certain that your continued prayers are what have sustained us as a family during this time and what has helped Gray recover from his awful chemo side effects. We know the future holds more hospital stays, doctors visits and unexpected surprises (if you can call them that…) but tonight, if just for tonight, we will do our best to keep that from our minds.

    I want you to know that I have been praying for your family and little Grayson and I will continue to do so.

    Just this morning I prayed that the Lord would show up on the scene wherever little Grayson was and miraculously heal his body. I rebuked the cancer and prayed that every cancer cell would be completely gone.

    I reminded God of his Word, in John 4:46-50 says, Once more He visited Cana in Galilee, where He had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to Him and begged Him to come and heal his son, who was close to death. “Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.” The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” Jesus replied, “You may go. Your son will live.” The man took Jesus at His word and departed. While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.

    I am praying and EXPECTING a MIRACLE for Grayson.

    Oh this is GOOD news! I think about Grayson throughout the day and everytime I do, I lift him up in prayer. I’ve had an infant not be able to latch on properly for breast feeding get a bit dehydrated so it is a scary situation. God though is greater than our fears!

    Praise God for your victories! He is excedingly able to meet all your needs. The story of Abraham has been in my heart and soul for weeks now. God loved Abraham so much and promised him a child. Laughter came from many, but God sent him a son. God had a plan. He asked Abraham to take his one and only son to the mountain top for a sacrifice. When Isaac asked where the sacrifice was, Abraham told him God would provide. Just as Abraham was ready to end his sons life, God stopped him. He told Abraham to stop and not harm the child. God provided the ram for the sacrifice. God just wanted to know that Abraham was willing to give everything that he loved to God. God got his answer and Abraham became the Father of a great nation. I do not know my Father’s plan, but He has a plan for you and your family. I know that you are weary but our strength doesn’t come from the things of this world, it comes from Christ. If I could give you your miracle today, I would have done it before this journey started. Stay strong in the Lord.
    “These things I have spoken to you,that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
    Be ready…God is on the move. Can you feel it?

    I am SO RELIEVED that he got to go home. I am praying for rest for the entire family and a recharging of the batteries. I change a lot of dirty diapers and now I look at them completely different than before. (HAHA) Seriously though…I read a story once about what prayers might look like. They were described as beams of light, emanating from the earth up. Some were small rays, and some were strong, powerful beams. Just close your eyes, and imagine you are in space, watching all the prayers for Gray go up to heaven…
