declares the Lord…

I wish there were some way I could avoid sending this update, but we really need prayer and we have held off as long as possible to get past the holidays and celebrations.  As you may know, Gray finished his cancer treatment on Dec. 5th and we were so excited to start making plans for 2012!  As part of his treatment completion, Gray underwent a battery of tests to confirm that he was in remission.  We got the results of his bone marrow biopsy first and were ecstatic to hear that everything was normal!  We then waited for Gray’s CT scan, bone scan and MIBG scan results believing that, at this point, the rest of the scan results were  just formality because cancer usually shows up in the marrow first.  Unfortunately, though, on December 22nd, Gray’s oncologist called with the scan results and the news was difficult.  The site of Gray’s original tumor, in his abdomen, had a spot that had grown and had also “lit up” from the dye they injected during the scan.  These two results caused concern in Gray’s doctor and so they immediately scheduled Gray for surgery on December 29th. We received the date for Gray’s surgery just before Christmas and so we did our best to enjoy our holiday and stay strong for our boys, but I think it goes without saying that what was to come was definitely present in our minds throughout the week. It was an emotional time for us.  At this time, we have elected to shield Seth from the possibility that Gray’s cancer has returned until we have absolute results, however, Seth DOES know Gray had surgery as part of his treatment.

There are a few different scenarios the doctors are looking at. They’ve told us this could be the return of Gray’s Neuroblastoma, although they have done their best to reassure us by letting us know that this would be extremely rare. It could also be a ganglioneroma, which is a tumor that is usually benign but can spread and become cancerous over time. Or, this could simply be remnants of calcified tumor which bares no cause for alarm.  Gray came through his surgery like a trooper, however they had to go in deep and his recovery has been difficult.  We thought we were just going to be admitted for one night but as of yet we have not been able to go home. We have been in the hospital for five days and counting.  Gray has recently spiked a fever, as high as 104, and the doctors are having a hard time locating the source of the fever.  He has been poked close to 20 times in the past couple of weeks and because he had his port taken out due to infection all meds most go through IV’s.  He has also developed blisters in his mouth and the doctor’s think he may have a virus.  They started Gray on 2 different precautionary antibiotics today and now we just continue to wait, praying his fever goes away.  We are also waiting on the biopsy results from last week’s surgery, which may not come in until Thursday because of the holidays.  I know God’s hand is on Gray and our entire family, but this continues to be a difficult time for us.  Just before Gray had his tests, in December, we were given the news that Doug’s mom’s breast cancer has come back and metastasized to her liver.  She will be starting oral chemo soon.  Our family needs prayer for strength and peace.  Our belief is that God is in complete control, however weariness can be a great adversary!  We love you and appreciate beyond words your prayers and support!

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher then the earth, so are my ways higher then your ways and my thoughts then your thoughts. As the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It WILL NOT return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:8-11

    Praying for your precious baby. I know that God will never leave or forsake us. I have 2 little boys that are 2 & 3. I will pray for Gray the way I would want someone else praying if it was my baby. God is our healer. Don’t grow weary in the fight, keep fighting & standing on the promises of Jesus. Praying for your family…

    Father, God, I bring Little Gray before your throne, in the precious name of Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus over this child, for Your Word says that by the stripes of Jesus we are healed. I claim complete healing for Gray in the name of Jesus. Satan, I bind you and all your symptoms, in the name of Jesus. I loose victory into the lives of these precious Children of God. I curse the curse of Cancer that is upon this family. You demon of Cancer, I cancel your orders against this familly, in the name of Jesus. Return to your father, Satan, and tell him Sis. Christine has canceled your orders. You have no place in this family. Satan, I command you to take your hands completely off of this family, off of this child and off of this Grand-mother. Satan, you are a liar and the father of all lies. I command you to shut your mouth and leave this family immediately and permantely. Victory belongs to God’s childen. you are healed, you are free in Jesus Name. Victory! Victory! Victory! Amen! Amen! Amen! Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus! Thank you, Jesus!

    Waiting is often very agonizing. You are always in my prayers. When we look throughout the Word, God was never early or late, he was always on time. I know that I have prayed that God would do it now for your family, in which I believe He is working, but now means that all the Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals, needles, meds, etc all go away for Gray. I know that the God of the Old Testament who made the sun stand still, sent fire from the sky, raised people from the dead, brought the Walls down with just prayer and obedience, parted the Red Sea, gave Sara and Abraham a child way beyond their years and saved Joseph’s family with the disobedience his brothers is still working miracles. I don’t understand the ways of our God but he is very calculated and never does anything on a whimwham. I still believe. I will always believe that Gray has the Hand of God on him and will one day have an amazing story of God’s healing touch. Be strong in the Lord and know that just because you don’t always hear from some of us only means that we are very busy praying for you!!!!!

    We will be praying in Nebraska also. Your family has been a blessing to so many of us. We were formerly on staff in McAlester, OK and have been pastoring in Nebraska now for 15 months. We will continue to hold you and Gray up in prayer.

  26. Kirk & Karla Ford January 5, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    Praying for you and believing that all will be well. Believing that this is just a scare tactic of the enemy, and it will end up being benign and of no concern.

  27. Kristi Northup January 7, 2012 at 10:39 am #

    Tears in my eyes. We share in the pain of this with you. My heart is heavy for each member of your family in a different way. I am on my way to Urbana, IL for the week of prayer. I will put Grey’s story in and many people will individually pray for you all this week. I will be praying. I hold this in my heart at every moment. Love you all.

    I began praying for you just before our daughter, Kara, had a recurrence of Leukemia. She had a bone marrow transplant just after Gray had his. Her sister was her donor. My heart is heavy for you. During our hospital stays and trials, we would read about and pray for cute little Gray. We pray for your strength and encouragement at this time!! We pray for Gray’s complete victory!!

    So sad to read about the latest. I pray Grayson is feeling better and recovering each day. I pray to God you aren’t looking at relapse treatment, but if you are, I would be more than willing to put you in touch with resources I have found that would be helpful. There are many options for relapse treatment, but they are complex and varied. Praying for your family, with hope,

    Just searched for an update on Gray and found this. Wanted to let you know that we at Celebration Church Tampa (AG) have not stopped praying for Grayson and your family. We especially focus on prayers at our weekly Wednesday and Thursday prayer meetings and have done so since the first week we heard of this need. We will not stop!Right now we are in a season of 40 days of prayer/fasting and I will be giving this update to our warriors. We will not give up!
