We have been extremely thankful to be back at home with the kids after a long hospital stay. Twice a day Karla gives me the antibiotic for the infection through the PICC line they installed in my arm. This takes about two hours each time, but once she gets me set up I can move around and work during that time. Karla has been a very quick study at providing for my medical care at home and interfacing with the doctors and nurses. I am incredibly thankful for her ongoing care for me and her willingness to learn and do whatever is needed. Daily I am thankful for God allowing me to have her by my side through this journey. We have been on this path of brain tumor, surgery, and infection for four months now. Pray that God would continue to sustain and strengthen both of us, just as He has been so faithful to do in the past.
Today we received the results from recent blood work that were a bit mixed in what they indicated. While some indicators are clearly normal, a few other indicators of infection continue to be concerning. Please pray that I would continue to respond well to the antibiotics, that God would remove all infection, and that I would recover quickly from the surgery.
We still face at least one more surgery to replace the bone flap that was removed from my skull and we will continue to monitor the site of the tumor over the next several months to make sure that there is no growth. Pray for endurance as we walk forward in faith along the road that God continues to place before us.
Thank you for your ongoing support and prayers,
