Home again

Just wanted to give a quick update. The surgeon decided Saturday evening that he wanted to squeeze Christian in on Sunday morning,  so around 8:30am on Sunday morning, Christian went back into surgery.  The surgeon was happy with the results. Christian's leg wound was able to be closed and he was given a wound suction machine that helps to keep the wound closed and he will have all week.

Thank you for continued prayers and support. Christian will go back to Chemotherapy next week, so he will be in the midst of recovery from surgery as we march forward with the necessary Chemotherapy. 

While Christian is always annoyed with hospital stays and waiting around for tests, meetings and inpatient stays. I have to say, that for the most part,  he is still himself. He is enjoying the merging of all the sports seasons( world series,  regular season NFL, college football & the beginning of the NBA season). He still wants to argue and debate with his father about sports players and stats and he still loves playing his XBOX 1. He still is too loud sometimes and every bit of the teenager that he is. I'm thankful to see that throughout everything so far, he has not lost sight of who he is.

But, let me not portray anyone as perfect over here. He is struggling with all of this in his own way. Just like we all are. 

Peace, love & blessings

    Thank you for taking time out to keep us engaged and informed. Me and the kids look forward to the messages. I think at times Kennedy and Myles struggle with all the things they imagine Christian goes through. The post lead to meaningful discussion and heartfelt prayers. Love you all and thank you for allowing us to take this journey with you. #MarshallStrong

    PATRICE...THANKS FOR THE UPDATE ! Stay strong and faith based as you have proven to be throughout this ordeal. There is a child about three years younger than Christian who went through this same ordeal ( identical surgical procedure ) and is now featured in television commercials here in Florida running in his first marathon race. It's truly inspiring and promises great hope to soon see Christian back on his beloved fields and courts of sport ! We all must remember..."IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE IT WE MUST BELEIVE IT !"

    Thank God for all the positive outcomes so far. I know the struggle for both Christian and the rest of his beloved family is real, and the Lord PROMISED “I’ll never leave you nor forsake you...”. That is so evident. We stand united in prayer for Christian’s continued-recovery, knowing that “no weapons formed against us will prosper.”
