Our 7 year old son, Landon, starts his bone marrow transplant in Cincinnati, OH this month. We would also like for prayers for our family as we face many challenges leading up to the transplant.
I feel like I've been struggling and struggling to start a life here, and it just seems to bring one dead end after another, after another. I finally got something of a job at the end of last year, and I am grateful for it and enjoy it, but it's not really enough to make the ends meet...barely. I'm constantly needing to rely on others to take my child to school for me, and am getting to a point where it's becoming hard to find someone. I'm a single mom, and I have to work. I'm doing the best I can to take care of my son and me, but it seems like nobody cares.
I have been on this board for a while, and thank you for everyone who has prayed for us. My husband and I struggled to put him through school. He graduated from the graduate school in May and now has his teaching degree. I have been so proud of him, it is a hard thing to do in your 40's to go back to school, but we knew it was the path God wanted him on so we made the sacrifices needed to get him through. But he has yet to find a full time teaching position, he works 3 jobs right now but we are still struggling money wise.
My son totalled his truck last week, and if God hadn't been watching over him he would not be here today. He feels so down on himself and feels like his life doesn't mean anything. Please pray that God will give him strength and insight for his life. Thank you.
My 15 year daughter was recently diagnosed with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), a VERY painful disorder. She had a very minor injury in June of this year, and the injury healed, but the pain got worse. We finally received a diagnosis of RSD. The big problem is she is a PEDS patient with an adult diagnosis. We have recently found a doctor that agreed to take her on and that specializes in RSD. We start spinal injections on the 13th of this month. It is literally a struggle for every day life for her due to the pain. Please say a prayer that the injections work, and that God give her strength to get through this. This is something that she will have to live with for the rest of her life.
