Not So Good News

Welcome to the roller coaster that has become our life. An oncologist came in tonight to go over the CT scan results. There is still an MRI to come but Jess didn't feel up for it, so they will try again tomorrow. The CT showed new stuff and all of it bad. Jess has a broken collar bone because of cancer breaking down the bone. She has new tumors in her lymph nodes in her abdomen. There are new tumors in her lungs and over twenty tumors in her liver. Lab results revealed that her meta-port is infected and will probably have to be taken out and she has too much calcium floating around in her blood. That calcium is causing increased pain and Jess just took medicine last week that is supposed to keep her calcium levels down. Jess is also anemic so she probably need to get more blood. She meets with a radiation oncologist tomorrow to see what can be done radiation-wise on her lower back.

Isaiah 41:10

"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."

Lifting you up in prayer right now. I know the Lord of all comfort and the God of all compassion hears our prayers. He is holding you up with His righteous right hand. May the joy of the Lord be your strength and may you find comfort in His promises.

In Him,

Lisa Smith

Jess & Jake,

As I'm thinking of you tonight, I keep hearing the words to this song...

"I loved you then, I love you now,
I will love you tomorrow.
When this world breaks you down,
I will give you strength to stand,
Look to me, take my hand and just believe,
Before this day ever began, I loved you then."

Praying that you'll feel the overwhelming love and peace of Jesus...

We love you,
Gina & Steve

"Breath of heaven,
Hold me together,
Be forever near me,
Breath of heaven.
Breath of heaven,
Lighten my darkness,
Pour over me your holiness,
For you are holy.
Breath of heaven.

...I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan.
Help me be strong.
Help me be.
Help me."

Yes Lord, Help...
It is all I know to say now, Lord.

My heart cries out -

Well, I will have to say, this report knocked me to my knees....literally. I had a mini/major melt down, then a wise sister reminded me that God is in control and we are to be faithful. It is so easy to claim faith when all is well. Jessa, rest sweet girl, knowing that we have you covered on every front with prayers. As Lisa quoted Jesus, "Fear not, I am with you," and He is always true to His word....always.

I love you to Heaven and back, Jessa,

Sweet Kaylor Family,

I pray that you feel God's Almighty presence every second of the day today...that you find comfort in the shadow of His wing...that His joy will fill your hearts and the overwhelming peace that comes from knowing His promises will sustain you, for He is The Great "I AM".

In Esther's Words from BSF, "The Lord sees our barren souls and writes a beautiful story for His glory". I pray that His Power will be revealed on this day.

Your Friend,
Lisa Smith
