Saturday, May 3

Well, I don't really know where to start. This blog was set up for us by my wonderful friend Jenelle. She also wrote the first post. Mike and I want to thank all of you who have been praying for us and our sweet baby boy. This is so incredibly hard for us, and we want to use this blog to be real and to update our friends on how to pray for us. We have met with ALOT of doctors and have been given more information than we can digest. Carter had a CT scan at St. Johns on Friday that showed there was a 5.5cm tumor in his chest, behind his heart. They immediately sent us to Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis. We chose to go to St. Louis because this is where my (Gina) family is. Evan is with my aunt and is having a GREAT time. Evan does have a stomach bug so he cannot come to the hospital to see us but we will arrange to see him tomorrow if need be. There is a chance we will get to leave the hospital and go to my grandmas and then come back later this week for surgery. Carter had another CT today to see if there are any tumors in his stomach, the surgeon just came to talk to us and he doesn't think there are any more but radiology will have to confirm that. It sounds like they will do surgery sometime this week and remove the whole tumor. This is not definite but a big possiblity. We are SOOO greatful for all of our friends and family who have been praying for us. We can not express how much we appreciate all of you. We will try to update as much as possible as this will be easier than trying to call everyone. Please feel free to call us or send us e-mails if we can't talk we will tell you.

Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7

I tend to worry a little sometimes so this is one of my favorite verses. We are in prayer for you, thankful for what God has already done but still bringing requests to him on your behalf. Let us know if we can do anything else.

John, Annie, Ellie and Josie

P.S. - Gina, you could have found a better way to get out of playing softball with us if you really didn't want to play. ;) Tell Carter to be B&T!

Dear friends: You are in our prayers.
Ps. 56:3 say "When I am afraid I will trust in You". May our Father be merciful and give you sustaing grace as we ask for His healing touch in Carter's life.
With love, Billy, Regina and Zack
