I wanted to let you know that Will will have a CT scan of his chest this morning at 8am (particularly looking at a place on his sternum) and some other imaging as well. This should give us a clearer picture as to where the cancer has spread in the body and what can be done. They decided not to do surgery on the spinal column and will do radiation instead. Radiation will start this morning after they get the results from the imaging and make a plan. We should be meeting with all the teams today and tomorrow and should get a better idea of what we are dealing with and the prognosis.
Will needs a miracle. There is nothing really else to be said. The doctors are confident that the cancer has spread to different locations and because of the different locations it makes treatment very difficult. We need the cancer to be gone when he gets these scans tomorrow morning.
I don’t want to be naive about what we are potentially facing…a nightmare that I can not even begin to fathom except in spurts that breaks me into pieces. We truly need the scans to come back negative and we truly believe that this is possible. That if the Lord so chooses he could heal Will tonight from all of this cancer and restore him to health completely. The hard thing to swallow is that he may not choose to do this. But, until then I will pray, and ask that you pray if you will…that God would show us the power that he has over death, over sickness, over cancer, over everything. As the Lord has healed so many throughout history, that he would choose to heal Will as well and that his power would be the only explanation to such a healing. That he would give us all many more years with this beautiful man. I know that the world is a better place with Will in it. We need him. I need him and I can not imagine a world without him in it. Will you pray? Will you pray that the cancer is gone when they do the scans. And that we would see a noticeable difference in Will’s strength and energy in the morning. He is sleeping now, I pray that the Lord would be renewing and healing him with each breath and when we awake, healing would have taken place in his body.
Thank you once again for walking with us, for crying with us, for holding us in the light, for praying. As difficult and scary as it is to write and to pray this… Lord, may your will be done.
