Treatment Day

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is Lincolns weekly treatment

 day. What this means for the family is they will get up

 and be quiet as possible while Lincoln sleeps in, hopefully until time to leave.  Lincoln 

isn't allowed to eat or drink so everyone will avoid food and drinks 

around our little super hero.  Sometimes they will 

even fast with him.  Imagine your little guy not being 

able to eat all morning into the afternoon every week!

   I have three kids of my own and that would be very 


Before they head to Portland they will put numbing cream on his port site and load up the 

van.  They will arrive at Doerbecher's children's hospital in Portland around 10.  He 

always goes though getting his height, weight, blood pressure, etc. checked, and by 11 

it's time for the procedure...  If he passed all his tests.

  If everything is a go, he will have a spinal tap and 

chemo tomorrow.  Sometimes they have to come back again on Thursday too. Talk about

 a long day, I will check myself next time I complain about my day!

Today Lincoln is still coughing and his nose has started to run again.  This means Lincoln is

 at the mercy of the anesthesiologist as to whether he goes under for his procedure. 

Please be praying all this evening into tomorrow that Lincoln is well tomorrow at his

 hospital visit and that 

everything goes as planned.  Pray for his parents and for rest.

It amazes me how when I talk to Jenny, Lincoln's superhero Mommy, how positive she is. 

 She is an amazing women who stands firm in her faith in God.  This is a recent post of

 hers on facebook.  

"Let me show you My way for you this day. I guide you continually, so you can relax and enjoy My presence in the present. Discipline your thoughts to trust Me as I work My ways in your life. Pray about everything; then, leave outcomes up to Me. Do not fear My will, for through it I accomplish what is best for you." 

His ways are always best. We pray, but do we really leave the outcome up to Him or do we try to handle in on our own and in our own way and time. Again, His ways are always best, trust in Him."

Thanks you Jenny for being such a great example to me as a 

Mother.  You really are a superhero Mommy!  Praying for 

your family!
