Forbearance, Resignation and Grace

Justin woke up from anesthesia, ripped the breathing tube out of his mouth and said, “I want my bagel now.” And he got it, too!

However, we will not be going home this afternoon. He had two chemo treatments today. As a result, he is very nauseous and vomiting frequently. He’s back on fluids and IV anti-nausea medication.

We are hoping to get home in the next couple days. It really depends on him being able to hold down fluids.

Justin is walking a little more each day with help. It is still uncomfortable, but he is able to do it for short distances. He is fighting us, but we have to stay firm and continue to encourage him to walk as much as possible.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

Weary, oh yes. Giving up, never.

Praying for the forbearance necessary to get through this next round of vomiting. And the resignation to avoid giving in to carrying him all the time. And the grace to make it through more time away from home and our other boys.

Grace be with you, my friends.

  1. Had a good chuckle with the bagel story! Poor baby. Hugs to you both! God has a reason for keeping him longer….as hard as it seems. Love you! Text me anything you need (even if it’s just company:)
