First Pathology Report

Waiting for the biopsy

The first pathology report has come back on Logan's biopsy. The wonderful news is the reports show no cancer - thank the Lord! What it does show is a jumble of cells, apparently the result of the infection he has had. The word they are attaching to it right now is "pseudotumor". Another sample of the biopsy has been sent to a lab in Dallas, TX for further analysis. We meet again with the doctor on Tuesday to hopefully discuss the second pathology results and to talk about treatment for Logan. At this point, he's still on the IV Vancomycin via his PICC line and we're infusing those meds at home here on the campus.

Waking up after the biopsy


We feel like this good news is a direct answer to prayer, and we are thanking God for His goodness. Thank you again for your prayers and support.

The campus family here at Rio Grande Bible Institute has taken Logan as a special prayer burden, praying for him in the classrooms, staff gatherings, volunteer devotions, etc. Nearly everyone I pass on the campus reassures us that they are praying for Logan and for all of us. We are so encouraged by their prayer support.

Thank you to those of you who have sent cards and gifts our way to help with the medical bills that are enormous. We appreciate your kind generosity and may God bless you for letting Him work through you to supply our needs - as He promised to do.

Daddy and Logan working on painting a model car sent to Logan in an awesome care package from Monte and Connie Stetler and their children. Thanks, Stetlers!

Check out the tongue - that always seems to help when you're working hard.

May you continue to feel the peace that passes all understanding. Just a side note my sister, Tracie, is your prayer partner.
