I am usually posting silly or funny posts. Even when I try to be serious, it just slips out. So I need to warn you that if you are only here for the jokes, you should skip this post and go look for something lighter.
I have some friends who go to my church who have just had shocking news. Yesterday morning their 5 year old son, Harry, was diagnosed with a massive growth pressing on his optic nerve. They took him into theatre last night, and had him under for most of the night. They discovered that not only was the tumour malignant, but it was even more massive than they had first thought. They removed most of the hard tumour, but have not come close to removing all that is needed. Apparently there is more than just the one growth, and it is too widespread to get it all.
Now today we hear from the experts that radiation and chemotherapy are not options. So we are not sure whether they are going to have to go back in to try and remove more of the growth, or if they are going to leave it like that.
Little Harry is one of the cutest and sweetest little boys you could ever hope to meet, and this is just killing everyone who knows him. He is being so brave.
If you can spare a moment, please pray for him; but also for his parents who are taking immense strain as well. They really need to be lifted up.
