And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Nate Update from his Daddy


UPDATE: Nate was put on several medications through his central line to calm him and ease the pain. He had a much more peaceful night because of this, but now pretty much just sleeps. His brothers, Jake and Luke, came up this morning and will stay all day. We are hoping as the day goes on with them here that Nate might become a little more responsive without the panic and pain he was having yesterday. We were told a Palliative and Hospice team would spend extensive time with us today covering a plan to keep him comfortable here at the hospital and if he continues to survive and is released. It was very hard for his brothers to see him this way and me and Jackie had to have some conversations with them that were very difficult. We did tell them that no matter what happens that God loves all of us and that Nate is being protected by God and Jesus and that there is no better place to be than in the protection of our LORD. We also all believe that there is a very real chance that Nate could pull out of this and survive and become stronger than ever....we have seen God do amazing things before in Nate's life and nothing should have us doubt that it won't happen again. We again want to thank the literally thousands of people out there praying and rooting for Nate...we feel your prayers and they do help...please keep them coming :) Also the doctors in Los Angeles and here are not giving up...yes, this appears bleak both Drs Finlay and Brown in LA said if he can just hang on comfortably for a few more weeks...there is a small chance that the strong meds he was given last week to fight cancer could very well start to work since they are time released and were our best shot at the time to hit this thing effectively. We still have hope and know that we are on God's timeline and that HE chooses when it is time. God has been there time and time again and can definitely heal Nate once more...but even if that does not happen here on earth, then Nate will be in heaven and there is not a better place to be. Please LORD, let YOUR will be done...the desire of my heart is to keep my son here on earth to be with me and my family and to heal him of this cancer so if YOU are willing, I plead with YOU to let that happen, but either way Nate is YOUR child and I trust that YOU know what is best for him...just please wrap him in YOUR arms either way and hold him close to YOUR heart.
