Jenn and Jeremy received the results today from the MRI and lumbar puncture, and sadly, they were not what we’ve all been praying for. There are cancer cells in Avery’s spinal fluid and the prognosis is not good. They met with their doctors at St. Jude’s this afternoon to decide what their next steps would be. They are going to begin a new chemo protocol called ICE at St. Jude tomorrow. This will involve 4 days of chemo and then they will come home to Kansas City where they will continue this protocol from Children's Mercy. She will get the chemo every 4 weeks. Most importantly, though, they will be home, together as a family.
The coming days, weeks and months are going to be extremely difficult for Jeremy and Jenn and their families. I humbly ask that you pray for them. I ask that you pray for peace as they make decisions that no parents should have to make. I ask that you pray that they find comfort in whatever decisions they do make. I ask that you pray that they get to enjoy every second they have with that sweet, sweet little girl. And most importantly, I ask that you pray for a miracle.
