Crappy Day

I don’t want to type this. I want nothing more than to be able to give a positive update. I’m so very sad. The bone scan from Friday shows another “hot spot”. We’re told there’s a 50/50 chance that it is more cancer.  This time it is in the same (right) leg, but at the very top of his femur near his pelvis. Again, he has no pain there.  Again, we are on the rare path. We go back to Children’s Mercy for another MRI tomorrow and then return to KU on Thursday to learn results and course of treatment as well as have the cast removed.  If the MRI is inconclusive, like before, we will have to do another surgery to biopsy this area – so possibly two surgeries at once. If this 2nd spot is cancer, Mason will have to do chemotherapy as well as surgeries.

To top off the day, on our way home from the hospital, we found out that Alli got a concussion at school. Because we don’t get any cell service on this KU campus, we didn’t even know. We are grateful for friends who take care of our kids when we can’t, friends who leave supper on our doorstep knowing we need it but don’t want to talk, and friends who bring by groceries knowing we are out of almost everything. All of this happened just today. God is definitely showing up through His people. We will also be grateful to never have another day as crappy as this one. It’s not even 6 pm and I need it to be over.  Please gather your prayer warriors for us.

  1. I just can’t ‘like’ this Amy. Nothing worse than watching our kids go through something that we can’t ‘fix’ my heart hurts for you…I’m praying


  2. I have been waiting to hear how today went. Praying hard for positive answer and a start towards full recovery. One day at a time, one hour at a time, and one minute at a time. Continued prayers for answers, healing and full recovery. Always remember, God is in the miracle business and the greatest physician of all. Sending lots of prayers, love and hugs!


  3. I’m so so sorry for the newest news Amy and Matt!! I will never stop praying for your lil guy! Wish I lived closer so I could relieve you once in awhile to go do your errands etc. I can only imagine how your world is spinning right now. God performs miracles. Don’t ever stop believing. Sometimes we have to stumble and fall before we can get back up and dust ourselves off and finish our race. So I’m believing Mason will be running to the finish line and defeat this. God Bless your lil family sending hugs and lots of positive vibes. Love to all.


  4. Hurting for you. Praying for you. Believing with you. He will bring you through these deep waters and this awful, crappy day. Mason is loved with an Everlasting Love.


  5. Thank-you for sharing. You were put on our prayer chain at church yesterday and reading your story now. Prayers are coming from our house to yours.


  6. My little Joe! Wish I could be close enough to hold you when you’re down and hug you when you’re crying. Keeping you close in prayer & knowing God’s loving hand will always be with you!


  7. Once again, your message brings us to our knees in prayer. May His strength surround you during this uncertain time for you and your family.


  8. Oh Amy, you’re right.. a crappy day. I’m so sorry that the news today was not what you/we were hoping for… I continue to pray for your family, for wisdom for the doctors, and peace for you all!

    Psalms 33:20-22 Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
