Oncology has confirmed the type of cancer in Davis’s body is a form of Rhabdomyosarcoma which is a solid mass tumor cancer.
Davis is currently in the process of having his port put in as well as a bone marrow test to make sure it hasn’t spread to his blood. Though his blood work has been normal, they are still running this test to be sure.
Tonight or tomorrow starts the long journey of chemotherapy. It will begin with 2 days of chemo followed by a day of flushing his system then they are expected to be able to go home. The future at this point looks like at least 10 months of weekly chemotherapy.
Here we are. One more step has been taken in our process. We now have a name for this evil. It’s amazing how the grief and anger can wash over you at once, all the while having this fighter wake up in you that says we are going to kick cancers ass. We will never be the same after this, for the better. My breathe is still the first thing I lose and yet I still find it by the Lords grace. I’m amazed at the strength of my husband and daughter. They are warriors. My beautiful boy is charming the socks off everyone he meets, in between bouts of “red rage” and exhaustion. This is just the beginning of a new life for us. Thank you for your prayers and support.
I’ll close with this....
Yesterday morning Davis was in a lot of pain and having a really hard time. After many attempts to provide relief and calm, I started humming How Great Is Our God (his favorite worship song). He immediately calmed and was able to finish the procedure in calm and quiet, steadying his breathe, and exuding courage. We serve a big God and He provides a peace beyond all understanding.
