Yesterday was a difficult day for Mike, Gabriel and I. Gabriel was in constant pain from his surgery and was taking codeine every four hours. However, this morning he seems to be responding to his Port a little better. His white blood count has been lowered. Leukemia causes over development of white blood cells. The doctors are very pleased with his progress. Gabriel has not had any fevers for two days. This is great news! Thank you to everyone for your prayers. God is so great! Continue to pray for peace and strength for Mike and I. We are seeing positive changes.
We are trying to cope with Gabriel's cancer, but can be difficult as our son's beautiful personality is in hibernation at this time. He is angry, sad, frustrated and barely smiles. This breaks my heart every time I see him. He smiles occasionally! We also realize that life is very different for us. We are also seeking God for direction in our life concerning our family. We are told that we will have to be on constant alert for fevers upon our return to Mt. Elgin. We have to be within one hour radius of London as we have to get him to the hospital quickly if a fever occurs. We are struggling with this potential as a result of where we are currently living. Please pray for direction in our lives. We are very thankful for want God has done for Gabriel. We thank Him for the progress that Gabriel is making. Thank you so much for your prayers.
