Jake Update 6/22
I don't think I like this post already. We got the call and well, I don't know how to word this...Dr. Gilbert said Jake has cancer and they are narrowing it down to which one. With all the biopsy stains they have done, the last set of biopsies they could do turned up with some of the answers they needed, but they ran out of samples. They are going to surgically remove the rest of the lymph node, but not until Friday.
A lot of crying today, but, that's just what mom's do. We'll get through this. I just need to go to the temple and get my booster shot, then I think I can make it through a few more days.
Jake is still doing ok. A lot more swollen in the foot now. A little nervous. Appreciating the treats he has received. He has a good attitude. He let me kiss him on the cheek today, but only because no one was around to see it. (hugging is still ok, but kissing is crossing the line. lol)
We have an awesome ward and neighborhood and lots of family who love us. If we have to go through something challenging like this, God has sure blessed us to live in the right place! Thanks to all who have shown their love and concern so far. My sweet friend, Emily, (in my primary class) already told me about the camp she went to and that kids with cancer went there, so Jake could go next year!
Thanks for your prayers! Keep em coming!
