3 appointments


We've got a full week of trips to the doctor: Monday was a long consultation with a couple doctors regarding future treatment options, followed by a scan of Isaiah's nasal cavity (checking for infection). Thursday we see the orthopedic surgeon regarding Isaiah's compression fractures. We're all having a tough time coming to terms with the complex and difficult realities of our situation. We would really appreciate your prayers for perspective and healing.

Consider it done! My class has been praying for all of you a few times throughout the day instead of just in the morning. If I were in town, I would come over and give you all huge hugs! Know that you are loved! If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask! I have a class full of kiddos and their families that are so willing to help!

Sometimes life feels so big. God is bigger, stronger, mightier and he holds us in his palm. You are in my prayers daily.

We are praying, all the time, I can't believe how often the kids think of Isaiah. Is there anything else at all that we could do? I hope you know you can ask. Love you,
Molly

I just returned from an amazing Children's Pastors Conference in San Diego. I have been so blessed and reminded once again these children are truly loved and embraced by God. I pray that God will carry your family and embrace you Isaiah with His strong arms of love. You are in our prayers continually!

Isaiah and family...

I meant to catch one of you yesterday at church... I just wanted to remind you all that you are covered in prayer daily in our house. Isaiah, you continue to be such strength to my boys. They pray everyday that you will be able to play some baseball. We all pray for your courage to withstand all these days of treatments and doctor appointments. Nate, Carmen and Sienna... we pray for your overall health... mentally and physically. We have loved the series that you are sharing, Nate. We have been able to draw so much strength from the messages. We pray that God will supply you with MORE strength and courage to keep up with all of this. Please know that you can call on us (even if it's just getting your hair done, Carmen) :0) for ANYTHING!

Love you all,

Tami

Haven't checked in lately. So sorry you are having a difficult time with all of this. I see patients come in daily and are so tired and exhausted from all the chemo and doctors appointments. I try to pray for your family on a regular basis. I know I skip some days. But you are always thought of. It seems like you have a ton of prayer warriors out there. Isaiah hang in there little one. Nathan & Carmen I'll be praying for strength for you. Sienna I'm sure it is just as hard on you too. Keep up the smiles. You are blessed and love by all of us.
I'll ask God for some good news the next time you post. It seems like you've been going down the wrong path, these last few posts. Isaiah stay strong - as you are a mighty warrior.

Love you all,
Roxanne Long
