Last Day


Good Morning Prayer Warriors,

Today is a happy/sad day. It is a happy day that Jesse will be waking up in her own bed this morning. It's sad that she goes back in the Hospital tomorrow for round two. With eight days of Chemo and around twenty days to recover that will be four weeks I don't get to tuck her in and kiss her goodnight in her bed. It is almost to much to think about. The time Jes had at home almost made it feel like this Leukemia was just a bad dream. Having to do her medications every eight hours wasn't a normal routine though. That brings me back to reality. I would gladly go through that for the rest of her treatments just to have her home. With me going back to work and Dakota not having her drivers license this next round will be even more challenging for us. We are praying for strength. Not having my wife and girls under my roof at night isn't something I deal with very well.

Jesse threw up several times yesterday. She didn't feel well enough to try to eat anything at all. Not a very good way to end the stay at home. This morning when I was giving her all her meds she felt fine so we will see how this day unfolds. Today will be a day of preparation. She will need to pack the clothes and things she wants to take to the Hospital. We will try to keep today a positive one because she really does not want to go back in (big surprise).

A special thanks to Erica and Michele for cleaning our house for Jesse's first return home. They, along with Kirkham Family and the Davis Family, also helped us out with bringing us a few dinners. Thanks also to Dee's mom & dad(and her sister) for the continued financial support. You all are very kind and we love you for thinking of us in this trying time. We are not very good at asking for things or help.
God bless you all and all the great folks that are supporting our family with prayer.

My heart breaks to see all of you hurting so badly. Last night was full of anticipation of what was to come, the sadness was already felt in the house as the day approaches for Jesse's return to the hospital.

I know that you all know that our God is walking this with you, carrying each of you through this trial but it doesn't change the fact that this just plain SUCKS! Its okay to say that. :)

I was reading this morning about the disciples in the boat and the storm that hit, they all freaked and Jesus slept because He was resting in His Fathers arms. My prayer for all of you is that you "sleep" in the arms of Jesus, let Him take this storm and calm it. Let Him carrying you, the harder it gets, draw nearer to Him, cling to His promises, He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Our family is here for whatever you need, God calls us to carry one another's burdens. That's literally carrying, walking with you, and helping to bear the burden you have right now.

No matter how long your on this road, no matter what you face, God is good ALL the time. He has Jesse in the palm of His hand and He has BIG plans for her.

Our prayers are with you, our hearts ache with you, and we love you all mucho mucho!

We have been thinking of all of you and the dread with which you face tomorrow. As each day passes, though, you get one day closer to closing the door on this whole ordeal. Jess, my heart aches for you. I can't imagine how much you don't want to go back tomorrow. Please know that there are so many people praying for you. We have passed your website on to so many people.
Hang in there. You aren't walking alone!
With much love,
The Turner Family

Jesse, praying your next round goes better than this past one did. God is with you, he will give you just enough strength for today. Just like when the Israelites were in the desert they got just enough Manna for today, and God provided enough for them the next day and the next.

Praying!

Good Morning Jesse and the Catron Clan. My heart goes out to you. THe Lord bless your heart for each additional day that you have to deal with this disease. I will continually lift you up from afar. I pray for Jesse's strength, emotional and physical. I pray for the ANC count to stay up and her not be weakened by the vomiting. My prayer is that her stomach is calmed and she has an ability to sleep peacefully each night. I ask you Father to give Jesse, even for twenty minutes the rest and comfort of hours. You are God and nothing is too small for your greatness. Stay strong and lean upon Him. You are a great team Catron family! Thank you for the encouraging words and example that you are showing us.
Love,
Sammy

Hi Girlie :D

I know it's been awhile since the last time I wrote you, I had a hectic weekend,I ended up working all through black friday :( deff not something I would recomend lol it was crazy. Anyway I have been able to continue checking your blogs on a daily basis, and I am glad to hear that you had a great thanksgiving with your family, and that your stay at home has made things feel. . . . almost back to normal. (almost being the key word ;) I hope that for your last day at home you are feeling fantastic and are able to enjoy every minute of it. I pray that you do not find yourself nervous or anxious about this next round, but that you can find peace in knowing that you are, as Erica put it, resting in the strong arms of your loving heavenly father. I am praying for you everyday alongside countless others and I am looking forward to hearing that you are back at home a second time :)

With love

Oh I am so sorry you aren't feeling good Jesse! =/
I do hope you feel better soon. I don't like it when your sick.

It does stink that you're going back to the hospital again, it was great seeing you at home and feeling somewhat normal. You could just think of it as though your getting closer and closer to the end of all this.

I'll be praying for you lots!

Love you Chica!

Praying everything goes well for you this time around at the hospital. And, I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling so good. Just know that God is with you and your family and he'll never leave you or forsake you. My heart aches as everyone elses does too that you have to go back so soon. Praying also that the Lord continues to give you and the family strength. Just rest knowing that the Lord has you in the palm of his hand.

Today is a big day and my prayer is for God to watch over this family, help them through this next round in their battle, and please give Jesse peace and comfort as the good doctors and nurses work to heal her. Deep breaths, heads up high . . . hold on to each other and know that we are all pulling for you and praying for you. God bless.

Jesse girl! Love ya lots. Try to stay focused on whatever is good. I know that is hard because I am a whiner. You are an inspiration to me! You are good at keeping focused on the positive.

Today will take strength -walking through the doors that are related to pain and suffering - voluntarily. Much as Jesus voluntarily walked through the gates of hell for us.

I pray that this round will be easier for you with good results. And I agree with what Erica said so well!
