Friday Update

Good Morning,

Clent got everything he asked for , on his Birthday- Bacon sandwich and Dump cake. (Thank God for a simple cowboy) When it was all over he said "I got everything I wanted, but it was my worst birthday ever" I promise I did not burn the bacon :) It is just that Jesse is so miserable with nausea and mouth sores without her pain pump from the hospital, that it is really hard to enjoy anything. She cannot take oxycodine because you have to take it on a full stomach, and Jesse has not eaten in over 3 months. We feel so helpless, not being able to take away the pain.

She did make it through the night without throwing up :) But, I hear her right now in the bathroom making up for it :(

Thank you church family for reaching out to us on our big move day. Words cannot express our gratitude for being Jesus's hands and feet. We love you guys!!

Much Love,

Team Catron

Three months is a long chica... wow. I'm praying that you get at least a few days at home that you actually feel good. Just think, at your dad's birthday next year, you'll be long done with chemo, feeling a lot better, hopefully with a head of beautiful hair, celebrating and pigging out on cake!! Focus on the end of this, you're almost through, focus on the end, He'll carry you through. Go Jesse, you can finish this out.

I don't know what dump cake is, but Dee got off easy making a bacon sandwich! ha Here's to next year being a much better family birthday! Jesse cured, no aches & pains for Clent and your family back to "normal". Wish we could be there to help in the move too.

Hope you have a good weekend and Monday brings good news!

Love from the Rieger Family

Paul asked the Lord three times to remove the 'thorn' from his flesh. And Jesus said to him, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in (your)weakness." And Paul wrote'when I am weak, then am I strong', because he rested in the strength of the Lord. ---It isn't easy, but it is possible.

It was good to say Happy Birthday to you last night,Clent, and to talk at Jesse for a minute. I would have loved to hear you say, "hey, how's it going?", Jesse, but I didn't want you to try talking. My heart is shredded in pieces of pain because of your pain. I love you so much, and it hurts so badly because I can't do anything, in myself, to ease your pain. But I know the ONE who can, and is control; and continue to ask Him that His timing be very, very soon for your complete healing.

We can't allow anything to distract us from remembering that our lives are all about Christ, not ourselves. Satan will send everything our way to cause us to lose our focus, if we let him. He likes to get us centered on ourselves, and how rough life is. We need to count our blessings, praise Him for His goodness, and think on good things.---I like Lauren's idea of thinking a head with positive thoughts.

Grandpa sends all of his love and prayers also. He would like to be able to gather you up in his arms and love the pain away.

We love all of you, and pray God's blessings and peace for you.

Dear Jesse,

Again, we are praying for your full recovery and look forward to the day you are completely healed.

I hope you feel better soon.

Jesse... more and more of my online friends have written to tell me that they are praying for you or encouraged by this blog. I know of a few that have donated to your account or reached out in their own communities to help others in their local areas.

Love ya

Hi Jesse, It's been a while since I sent a message. I read the blogs and I am continually blessed and encouraged that you have these awesome parents and sisters, friends, church family etc. to be there for you. Everyone wishes they could take away your pain, but since we are uncapable of doing anything to make that happen we can pray and love you thru. You guys are an amazing family and I just pray rich spiritual blessings over you all. God will reward you for your faithfulness in that you have not denied His name. This is a word of encouragement to your family: II Timothy 4:7,8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith, Finally there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness,which the Lord, the righteous Judge will give to me on that Day and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing." Hebrews 6:19 "We have a hope as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast". May the Lord bless you and keep you and make his face shine upon you.
Love, Renee & Ray Alvarez
