Spotlight Saturday: Julie Morrison

PLEASE PRAY, for this family!!!!! My heart is in a state of shock right now, not really .... I just don't want to face the reality of the situation, but I know that God works through all situations and this is no exception. Here are the codes if you feel lead to put this on your blog, and oh how I know she would be so blessed by your kindness if you posted about this on your blog!!!!!

Friday, June 12, 2009 12:52 PM, CDT Well, we went to the doctor today and it was not what we wanted to hear. I will just tell you what they told us. The CT scan showed that the cancer is drastically worse than it was a month ago. It is in her kidney, liver, both lungs and chest. The doctor said that he is stopping chemo because Julie is too weak and the cancer is too agressive. He said that he would have to admit Julie to give her chemo and that if he did, she never come out of the hospital.

He said if we wanted a second opinion he'd do what he could to help us. But, he said that no matter where she goes, the diagnosis is the same. He did say that he has seen miracles and he knows God is capable, but medically speaking we should switch from treatment to quality of life. If we pursue a second opinion, we feel that would take away valuable time from the boys, family and friends.

Next, he recommended hospice. We should have a visit from them in the next few minutes to explore our options.

He told us we needed to consider what we want for a living will.

Lastly, he said he did not like to give time frames because to often you are wrong. But, he wanted us to know what his experience was telling him. Based on how aggressive the cancer is spreading, he said she has days to a couple weeks.

Again, Julie and I both know God is bigger than any doctor. However, we must keep our eyes focused on him. I will try to keep you posted over the next few days and would love to share a miracle with you. But, the best gift of all is the past 24 1/2 years being Julie's husband. She is the love of my life, my best friend, the mother of our boys.

Please continue to pray.
