We came back to the clinic for our results and found out they were good and we were indeed starting chemotherapy today. A mix of emotions were starting to come over me and I didnt know what to to with them. I wanted to see Craig right then so he could just hold me and tell me everything was going to be okay. I wanted to see the girls but they were with my sister having fun. I wanted all this to be over and for Ingram to be okay. I'm scared about how he's going to react to the drugs. I'm scared about how the girls are going to react to Ingram. I'm scared about how I'm going to react to everything!
All these things were going through my head as we were actually going to start what we've been talking and preparing to do since Tuesday April 12th when Lebonheur discharged us to the care of St. Jude. This was our day so far and it was only mid-morning, maybe 10am at the latest. Finally at 4pm the first chemotherapy drug was pushed and all those feelings from the morning came rushing back. We've been praying that with the surgery, radiation, and chemo that his tumor would be gone and never come back; and today at 4pm marked beginning the last stage in our fight for Ingram.
There are so many unknowns that could have us in the bottom of the barrel but we're still believing that God loves Ingram more than we do and that he's going to not only conquer the battle, but also glorify God in the process. We would ask for continued prayers for Ingram during this time, that all of these medicines work, and also that his body is able to recover from the harshness of the drugs. We would also like to ask for prayers for our friend Jayden and his family tonight. They are heartbroken this evening as they received their test results. Jayden is only 4 and has been battling cancer since he was 15 months old.
