Jeff, Kirt, Brian and Rob took on the clippers Saturday for Team Justin. Together we raised $3,000 for childhood cancer research! Thank you so much for your support and generous donations. Our hope and prayer is that someday there will be treatment for all types of childhood cancer as well as better treatments with less difficult side effects.
We saw Justin’s oncologist this morning and spoke at length about his apparent anxiety I have noticed. His doctor confirmed that he is indeed showing signs and symptoms of stress and social anxiety such as increased heart rate, refusal to speak to others and reluctance to be away from me. Justin’s doctor wants us to meet with the clinic’s child psychologist to discuss strategies to help Justin work through his feelings. It is not uncommon for children with a traumatic medical diagnosis to experience these symptoms.
Please pray along with us that Justin’s heart will be touched with a calmness and peace. And for wisdom handling this new layer of an already very difficult journey.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3
Grace be with you, my friends.
