Missy

Over the past several weeks our family has quietly been struggling through very difficult days. We found out that Missy's cancer has started growing again and that her treatment plan was no longer working.  There was a trip to the NIH and a new plan was set.  We are now in the window of time where we wait.  We wait to see if this new medicine has an effect.  We wait to see what the future holds.  There isn't much more to say on it than that.  We are waiting.  Holding our breath while we see if this treatment is effective.  We are huddling together as a family, praying for healing and praying for peace in our hearts over this time of unknowns.  We are enjoying our time together, laughing and crying and trying to not spend too much time thinking of the unknown future, but enjoying the now.  All while praying, praying, praying...

I haven't mentioned this on here for several reasons, but mainly because this is all very personal for Missy, and I didn't want to talk about it until she was okay with me doing so.  I am not sure how much I will talk about the details of this battle here, but I will ask you if you can, to please pray with us. Please pray for Missy, for my parents, for all of us, as we wait and see.

I will continue to blog like normal, because it is an outlet for me, and I enjoy it.  But know as blog posts go up about pumpkin patch trips, preschool, and things at work, that the major thing going on in my life right now is this.  And this is all very hard on our hearts.

  11. Hello Sarah, I'm so sorry to hear your sister has the cancer growing again. If you ever do want to talk about this, our online community allows for usernames so you can protect your identity. Goodness knows caregivers also have a huge burden to carry, there's so much to tackle emotionally.

    In any case good luck to your family. You are in my thoughts. ~Catherine
