QUICK PRAYER REQUEST
We finally got approved for the final PET Scan. CJ will have it at 7am tomorrow! (May 10th) For anyone up doing your devotions at that time PLEASE add CJ to your prayer list that morning. I know you expect me to say pray for clear scans but I am asking everyone to pray for Gods will to be done. Nothing more...nothing less! His good and perfect will! That is all we want.
CJ is not really nervous this time. At least not yet. Tomorrow morning may be a little different. He is more nostalgic this time. More like, "Wow, this could be the last one."
Last week, we were at the hospital and ran into a close family friend that CJ has known all his young life laying in this very machine. She prayed and supported him through his battle and now she was just entering her own. She was immediately followed by his poppa Enzo. He told me he could not believe they were laying in the same machine he has been in so many times and was about to be in again.
After this PET scan, provided the results are all clear with no new evidence of disease, he will have the port removed. As much as he looked forward to this, he is realizing it will be another milestone in this journey. He told me the port has become a part of him and a part of the whole journey. It will be "good but weird"to part with it. That is a child's version of "bitter sweet" Imagine that!
It started as a race to the finish and somewhere along the way turned into him opening his eyes to what God had placed all around him, even through cancer. His advice to people just getting diagnosed used to be to hold on, trust God, you will get there! Now it seems to be, don't only focus on the finish line or you may miss some amazing people in the race with you and unexpected blessings along the route. Imagine that!
Thank you to everyone who has prayed us through. Those who have been with us from the first PET Scan until now, those that have joined us somewhere along the way, and those that have stuck with us till the end. We appreciate every prayer. Every thought.
We will meet you at the throne of Grace to pray once again for CJ!
