Many of you will remember praying for Peare Frazier. Please pray for him. This is an update from his mother: Today was much anticipated and unfortunately, we did not receive good news at the doctor with my son. His AVM has more than doubled in size. The lump on his neck is suspected to be Mono (a virus which causes inflamed lymph nodes), although only one is bulging, the inflammation extends down on both sides of the neck. The lump on his neck has been there for at least a year (which is atypical for mono). He is being referred to an infectious disease specialist here in Dallas (appointment pending). As for his AVM (Arteriovenous Malformation), in his leg, his doctor said he was going to have to consult with an outside specialist for next steps. We left today optimistic on the outside, but low key defeated on the inside. He’s already had multiple surgeries to shrink it in the past 2 years with no luck. They will call next week to schedule an appointment with the infectious disease doctor. Follow up for his leg is TBD, after extended consultation. I will continue to keep you updated on any upcoming appointments.—
Please continue to pray for Ray and Donna Cook. They met with the doctor yesterday and he went over the CT scan. He was shocked at the size of Ray’s thyroid and it has grown into his chest area.

Now surgery will have to be rescheduled when the cardiologist can be there. We are praying it might happen sooner. We are hoping to have some news next week. Continue to pray for wisdom for the doctors, surgery scheduled soon and peace for us as we wait. It has been a long process but confident we are with the right doctor. We are thankful for all the prayers and know God is with us.

The promising new chemo drug our daughter-in-law was taking is not working. A CT scan done Friday shows KaCee’s cancer has significantly spread. The oncologist is putting KaCee back on a previous chemo that effectively tamped down the cancer but devastated her body. KaCee has been prescribed Neulasta, a wonder drug to keep her white blood cells from cratering. Unfortunately, because KaCee’s diagnosis is terminal, insurance does not want to pay for Neulasta, which is very expensive. Please pray they can get the Neulasta approved.
