The Oncologist

Whitney, Pete and Pop met with Forester's oncologist for 3 1/2 hours today. It was a really horrible, difficult meeting because the doctor reviewed every possible side effect of chemotherapy, the statistical survival rate, etc, etc. We will post more details later but just wanted to ask for your prayers for peaceful sleep tonight and for Forester's surgery on Thursday. Apparently, the surgery to implant the radiation port will be 5-6 hours. He also has to have pre-radiation/chemotherapy medical testing and a pre-surgical appointment on Wednesday. It's time for Whitney & Pete to talk to him about the next steps. Please cover all of these things in prayer.

Forester had a great appetite again today, played videos games and even argued with Micah! :o) Also, Whitney got Tamiflu prescriptions for both of the boys as a preventative measure.

Psalm 146: 5-6

5How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6Who made heaven and earth,
The sea and all that is in them;
Who keeps faith forever;
