Once again after a rough day all your comments, prayers, and verses have lifted my spirits. How different my experience would be without the Internet. It is easy to feel like the world is the hospital room you are stuck in and nobody else in the world knows or cares what is going on. Then I see over 70 comments from people who do know and care deeply. Right now it is hard to have visitors because Joseph is no longer sleeping all day. In fact, he is barely sleeping at all. He was very agitated all day, except for his 3 hour nap after they gave him valium. Then he woke up and was pretty agitated the rest of the day. Allen is working on getting him more medicine (they had to wait on the doctor to order the valium for him), so hopefully valium or morphine will help settle him again.
I am spending the night at home and Allen is sleeping in there with him. I think I might be getting sick so I have been ordered home to get rest. Please pray that Joseph will sleep tonight and that Allen will too--and that I don't get sick.
We are meeting with the neuro-oncologist tomorrow between 11:00 and 12:00 to discuss the results of the pathology. I don't know what any of these words mean, but basically they will hopefully have found out what type of tumor we are dealing with and what the plan should be to treat it.
Thanks to each and every one of you. We feel overwhelmed in a very good way at how much our church family is doing for us and of course, our immediate family have dropped everything to support us and love us. Thanks Nana, Grandad, Mimi, Big Daddy and sissies and brothers. And thanks, Granny, for praying!! It also warmed my heart to hear that, SJ. We have also had the sweetest, best nurses in the whole world. One night nurse actually called our hospital room from home the next day just to check on Joseph b/c she said he touched her heart.
We will post again tomorrow once we have some more news.
