Daddy Update!

god's word healing

Daddy is not on his HepC medication because he’s been so sick with pneumonia. He’s finally over the pneumonia but his white blood cell counts, red blood cell counts and platelets will NOT rise.

His infectious disease doctor (nice title) told Daddy to see his oncologist (because Daddy did chemo with him and this doctor understands the blood cell counts, etc.). His oncologist told him that he may not be able to take the HepC meds because the chemo burned out his bone marrow. BURNED OUT HIS BLOOD MARROW.

However, the oncologist also told him that he doesn’t know much about the HepC meds and it was really up to the infectious disease doc. The infectious disease doctor doesn’t seem to excited about putting him back on the HepC meds. He doesn’t think Daddy’s body can take it.

If he can’t return to the HepC meds there is NO alternative medication. His liver will continue to fail.

So, what’s next?

They are waiting another week or so (November 3rd, maybe? I can’t remember.) to see if his platelets/blood cell counts go up. If they don’t rise they will do a BONE MARROW BIOPSY. *shudder* Daddy said this is a heinous procedure. They literally drill into your bones. UGH.

Then? Who knows.

Here’s what we’re praying for:

1. Total. Healing.

2. Daddy’s platelets and blood cell counts would return to normal.

3. He can be put back on the HepC meds and finish them off without a hitch.

I know 2&3 seem totally different from 1. The point is—pray that he’s healed. By a miraculous miracle or miraculous medicine. Either one is fine with me.

I’ll close with some scriptures because I need to remind myself of the Truth. Not what I see…

“Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.” Psalm 107:19-21

“…I am the LORD, who heals you.” Exodus 15:26b

Thank you for praying!
