Remember the juice bar escopade from yesterday? Well, disaster has been averted! I was able to go and get 15 bags of juice bars today. That should last him for a while. I found them in the freezer at the store and told the kids to load up every bag they had. That might have been a little excessive but I am not going to be unprepared again!
Trent was not doing so good this morning. I called Katie, the Huntsman nurse, and told her what was going on. She immediately ordered a bunch of prescriptions for him and suggested a CT scan in addition to the MRI tomorrow. She and I both were a little worried that he was not going to be able to make it down there for the appointments. But after I got off the phone with her my dad came home for lunch and Trent asked for a blessing from him. He reaffirmed the blessings that had previously been given and then blessed him that he would be able to eat and keep the food down and that he WOULD have the strength to travel to SLC and have the scans done tomorrow. After the blessing he counseled Trent that he needs to stop worrying about everything else and concentrate on healing. AMEN TO THAT!!! I have been telling him that for a long time but I understand it is really hard to do.
So I loaded him up with fluids and meds and left him to sleep for a while. When I came back he was asking for Dominoes Pizza for dinner! Hallelujah! Of course, I ran out and got it and he was able to enjoy it-once! After dinner he even sat up and watched a movie with the kids while Mom and I tied his quilt. By the time Dad came home Trent was looking much better and feeling better too. Right now he is happily eating one of his MANY juice bars and looking forward to tomorrow. Hopefully we will get SOME good news. It doesn't have to be awesome, but some indication that there is improvement would be great. We are really hoping to hear that the cancer is shrinking in both the hip and lungs and that there is no involvement with the bones. That would last us for quite a while. Please send up the prayers for something positive tomorrow!
