Well Andy became really weak since weve been in wv. We had a morning of major confusion and he was incoherent so we headed to the hospital.
he was admitted over night and ended up being dehydrated and sugar was sky rocketing... so the good thing was that we were able to get control on those things. Andy is in no shape to travel back to nj so wv here we your magic!
we'll be seeing a cancer doc next week and seeing what the next step is for andy.
all we know is that tumors have shrunk in spine but the brain has increased...and maybe why hes been acting like hes experiencing dimensia...were back at his moms now

This war is not over and were not giving up by any means but it is heart breaking and gut wrenching to see him this way.
Prayer warriors rise up....God is still on the throne

Bye Bye Tumors!!!

Ok so today is a go0o0o day for us!
Andy had 2 mris this week  the full spine and the full brain...we dont have the brain reports yet but the 2 sections of the spine he got done was lumbar and thoractic....
Where there once were tumors on the lumbar are no more....not docs words but the report says there clean and no abnormality demonstrated! yessssss!!! Thank U Jesus!!!! Glory!!!

The throactic is much more difficult to understand at the end it says minimal disc changes.....the docs originally said that it would be a longshot for anything to decrease they just wanted to stop growth so andy could live for a few i will take minimal on that part....!!!

Im so thankful for Gods healing touch on Andy....

My devotional this morning talked on miracles and the end note said
dont settle for the ordinary but expect the extraordinary!

God is still in the blessing business!

Well Today was a positive day!
When Andy first got his sugar tested at sloan a little over a week ago the doc was really concerned it was pretty high... And he had to increase the steroids for andys headaches which would raise it more so he wanted us to get a primary so he could start on insulin asap....

We couldnt get a appt until today and andy has been on the increased steroids...his sugar was 170 i believe and just needs to take a pill to bring it down some....

Our first breakthrough...Hallelujah!!!

Andys sloan doc wants andy to get mri's this week so he can have his own copy since he will be treating him....
so i will keep you updated on the results...

Andys spirits are great....We are in prayer alot together and when he enjoys when i read Gods word to him and is really being blessed by the book....suprised by healing....

He's looking forward to his parents coming in for the weekend so keep them in prayer as they travel.

Every Day is a gift from God

Well we came to NJ to find physical healing for Andy. What we have gotten unexpectedly is Spiritual healing!
God has really been pruning us and  rising us up to not only be fighters but spiritual soldiers...
After praying we felt that This isnt just a war of flesh and blood but a Spiritual one too... So we have been under Quarentine so to speak...

We have  given up things for now that have any negetive influence on us at all.  And Spending all our time in the word,speaking it over Andy and in Prayer together...We have never felt more encouraged and closer.We have a lot of people that think this is whats right whispering in our ears all over but we want to hear from God and be lead by only him . Because only HE knows whats best for us....

In doing that I have seen a major physical and spiritual change in Andy...Hallelujah!
When he first came to NJ he couldnt get out of bed to sit through a meal and yesterday we were at church with friends laughing,praying and having sweet fellowship until midnight...God is so faithful...Everyday he is restoring Andy more and more...

As many of you know we have been waititng for Gods leading on where the next step to live is and we were praying super hard because we want it to bo so God lead ...and a place where we can grow so spiritually strong together...A place of refuge...

Mom is moving out in days and as far as yesterday still no place to go...Yes, i admit i was getting discouraged because in just a week God has provided everything else we have needed and have transformed our prayerlife and walk.

As i was driving today i heard that snipet of a song..."hold fast, help is on the way!"

Then my phone rang and it was Robin with news that someone she knows had cancer and knows our story and our struggles and wants to get us a place to live.....not only that but talked to the mayor and a few higher up and want us to open an account so they could help pour in some finances.

We are so richly blessed....Im so Thankful for Gods healing touch on my husband and the wonderful doors he has opened....Theres alot of fundraisers that are going to be coming together so i will keep you posted on those when i find out more...

Keep us in your prayers that we will be so sensitive to what God wants in us and through us....That we wouldnt take a step in front or behind but that we would walk hand in hand with him...

God has placed 2 very special mentors in our lives here that have invested in us,taught and  lead us in the right direction....Such kindred spirits that when were together we draw stregnth from one another...Thank You God for your many ,many blessings!!!

By His Stripes We Are Healed....Thank You Jesus!

Wives...1 peter 3:1-4

Wives, be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the Word,they will be won over without words by the behavior of thier wives ,(2) when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

(3) Your beauty beauty should not come from outward adornment,such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. (4) Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in Gods sight.

Dont know why i was led to share just wanting to be obedient!

Our 1st Doc Appt in NJ

Me,Mom, and especially Andy had a very long day yesterday. We were in Sloans Basking Ridge branch all morning. When we met out nurse we immediately felt a connection. She was very personable and informative. She gave us a lot of information to read up on and look into. We did not leave her empty handed.

Then Doc Gavrilivick came in and was very straight forward with us,He wanted us to know how andgry Andys cancer really is and what we need to prepare for.
They  have decided that Temedor is the best drug option for now because of the brain penetration.
We asked some very scarry questions

Whats andys life expectancy?
Is there a cure?
Whats going to happen?

He was very honest with us and told us Andys Cancer is the worst...agrressive and angry...  and when the cells grow and form tumors they cover the worst possible places they could.
They're hope is that this drug will stop growth and extend his life and if it shrinks ...THATS A BONUS!

but that worst case scenerio hell be gone in 2 case with treatment and all
3-6 months to live...That this cancer was so rare and dosnt usually grow to the places that Andys has its all experimental at this point...but that the cancer is covering his spine and brain at this moment.

That was hard to swallow...Thank God My mom was with me....I cried like a baby in that office.
We knew the cancer was rare and it was a longshot but for a doc to stare at u in the face and say that...wheeew   I couldnt contain myself.
I had to leave when andy was getting his tests so i could collect myself. I try to be as strong as i can for Andy but sometimes i cant control it.

The doc reccomended being here so they could start treating him and getting us as many resources for help as possible.

When me and Andy talked we both knew we needed to be here.
We both felt very comfortable and very well informed before we left that day.
we left with folders of all kind of information and teaching on the chemo pill hell be taking . We did not leave empty handed thats for sure.

We spent the day crying, holding each other,praying and crying.

I know that we made the right choice. And one reason I deleted my facebook was because this is a very crucial time for us and have been hit by negetivity on there from people that we thought were very close to us and didnt want to hear anyone tell us we made the wrong descision.

His cough isnt due to nemonia(i know i spelled it wrong)
its due to cancer progresion...results from Chest scan

Andys blood sugar is high and thats why he is so thirsty all the time and the steroids will make it higher so today I will be finding him a local family doc so that we can monitor it before it gets too bad.

Still believeing God for our miracle....We will never give up our Faith and our Hope!

I have so much more to say but there is a 1 yr old that wants to wake up and play.

Psalms 4:4-6
"Stand before the Lord in awe, and do not sin against him. Lie quietly on your bed in silent meditation.
Put your trust in the Lord,and offer him pleasing sacrifices. Many will say that God you wont help us.Prove them wrong by letting the light of your face shine down upon us.
