Monday, July 18th

Well, this has been the craziest week!   Wednesday, I got a phone call from the social worker at the hospital where Jacob has been.   She informed me since we are refusing radiation for Jacob, they would be filing a petition for court.  I was in shock!  Well, not totally.  In shock for the fact that my son in CANCER-FREE!!!  Anyway, Friday morning comes and I am woke up by the sound of Child Protective Services knocking on our door.  I was disgusted to find out that the hospital lied and said that he would have a 0% chance of survival if he didn’t follow through with it (that number was NEVER given to me).  Second, they with-held the fact that his PET Scan came back clear and he is, in fact, cancer-free.   I am disgusted by the fact that they were deceitful.  What happened to parent’s rights?  We are not being foolish and not taking further action with Jacob.  We are taking him to a place to build up his immune system, get some healthy weight back on his bones and he will have multiple therapies to heal his worn body.    The fact that they want to give him almost 2 months of radiation plus 6 months more of chemo – both of which cause cancer – when no cancer is present, is completely shocking!  Please be praying for all of us!  Jacob is scared and worried!   He already told me that if they make him do chemo and radiation, that he will kill himself!  Satan sure is working overtime, but God is in control!!! 

On a good note, we’ve been enjoying our time at home.  We spent the day at the beach on Saturday with some friends and had a blast!!!  Jacob and Caleb loved it!  A guy that Ken knows, lent us his jet-skiis to use.  I think Jacob is in love!!  🙂  It was a beautiful day!  Now if we can just stay cool……


Please keep us in your prayers!  I’m sure it’s only gonna get harder before it gets better.  Please pray that justice will be served and that the judge will see the truth!

    That was very disturbing to read how you are being treated by the hospital. Wish I could go put knots on that social worker’s head, but that would’nt solve anything. We will continue to keep him in our thoughts.God Bless.

    God’s peace, Jane

    Just want you to know that I continue to pray for you, Jacob and your entire family. Our ladies’ bible study at the Chapel also prays for you.
