Hard Day

Yesterday the doctors thought we may not get the results until Friday so thought we may want to go home for the! A few hours later, they said that the results had come in and that the original diagnosis had been accurate. They admitted him today and will get started on chemo tomorrow. The loss is hitting Jordan big time. He is processing and doesn't want to hear the happy outcomes from the nurses or the great stories of others like him. Fair enough. They are probably meant for us as parents.
And then the afternoon we ask a nurse the average first time out-of-town stay for chemo and she says up to 5 weeks. The air was sucked out of the room.
And then we say the room - sterile, tiny and old. Oh my - such a change from the cheerful, beautifully decorated clinic we'd been in. And I (Darlene ) am a bit claustrophobic.....oh Jesus....seriously?
We choose to thank God and then all burst into tears. So grateful for a private room. God is good. The staff is wonderful.
So the good parts are hard to find today, but God is good, even when it is difficult.
We rehearse the truth and are living in the facts. Thank you so much for standing with us.
