Devestated

I wrote a post about the P Family awhile back here... They are part of our FRamily (as my BFF cookie puts it) and they need our help. Their 5 month old Bryson has been sick off and on for about a month now and after numerous doctors visits he was finally admitted to the hospital last night for dehydration and an abnormal blood count. After a thourough examination the hospital doctor noticed a hard area on his stomach. An ultrasound and x-ray were ordered and this morning a CT was done. They've found a tumor growing on his kidney and they've determined that he has Stage 3 cancer. We are completely devestated and in shock. His parents are going through every parents worst nightmare...they feel completely helpless and hopeless.

The plan is to do a few more tests, get a biopsy of the tumor, start chemotherapy and then hopefully remove it. I've seen how prayers have helped MckMama's baby Stellan and Kelly's baby Harper and I'm asking for your prayers for Baby Bryson. The hubby and I are doing everything we can for our dear friends but Bryson's health is out of our hands.

I know that you don't know who I am, but I just happened to stumble upon your blog from another friend's blog. I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for them!

PS: I am engaged to a sailor in the Navy and will be moving to Virginia to be with him in about a month. And I'm going to school to become a nurse. I just thought it was very ironic haha.

Being the mother of 3 boys, reading about this PRECIOUS little angel boy has broken my heart. I'm going to put him on our Prayer Chain at my catholic church. God Bless Bryson & his whole family!!!!!

Don't worry meow, your not the only one. TLove and I lost it last night in the parking lot. It really bites. It's not fair. I'm having a hard time not losing it in front of my boss either. It's amazing how such a little guy can make an entire world stop spinning when he is hurt. I don't know what to do. If something happens to him, I am afraid I will lose the little bit of faith that I had remaining since my dad died. But nothing is going to happen to him so I don't have to worry about it, right? This is just a test, an awful test, but we will all pass and will do so with flying colors, especially BDawg. TLove sent Daddy P a text and I like what he said in it. He said that BDawg came early because he was fighting to be with them sooner, so that's why he knows that he is strong enough to fight and stay with them longer. I forgot my phone at home so if you need me you will have to get a hold of TLove. He should have my work number too.
