Hi All!
I am typing this to you from HOME~ yes, we were equally surprised, but they thought if Colin was able to function and felt safe enough to be at home that he could come home for the week, until next wednesday for more treatment. We have learned that all the Doc's have for an answer to Colin's symptoms is that it's the lymphoma...there were tests done to see if there was damage being done by the treatment and that was ruled out as a possibility.
Colin is home, comfortable, and he's happy to be here with the boys. Obviously we had to explain to Corban why Daddy doesn't have any movement in his face to show any kind of emotion. There is no smiles, only laughing from his shoulders and the sound of his voice. He cannot move his eyebrows, or scrunch his nose, or blink very good or move his lips very well. The boys are doing well with him though, he is still Daddy and Colin is trying to come across as normal as possible but it's very frustrating for Colin, to function normally without feeling that he is inadequate to communicate.
We are slowly processing our new information of transplant and the whole process, and we are gathering all of God's wisdom through each one of our parents and people who have more life experience and wisdom than we do, we head each one's advice and we know God speaks through the wisdom of His people.
The reason i am writing today is that we are planning a time of prayer for Colin, a time to pray for healing, to give God our worries and fears and ask Him to cover Colin with a protection that can only come from our God. Also just for direction and peace to what lies ahead. Tomorrow, Thursday, May 13, 2010, at Hillcrest Church in the prayer room at 7pm. There is going to be a time of prayer. We invite anyone who is available to come and stand with us in prayer, but also, if you are not able to be there, as we know many of our family and friends are in other provinces and cities. But we ask that at 7pm tomorrow night, that you stand with us in spirit and ask God for His healing hand to be upon Colin as well as protection and provision in all of the details and decisions that lies ahead. We thank you in advance for being apart of this in any way you can! We also realize this is short notice, we felt the urgency that each day can change in an instant, and Colin is home now, and we are around our loved ones and we don't want to waste any time in coming to the Throne of God on Colin's behalf.
Thank you for any prayers you can give on our behalf,
luv, Melissa


  1. Dear Missy & Colin:

  2. I won't be able to be there as I have a bad cold and don't want to risk sharing. I will however be praying for you as you go through this time.

  3. Hi Guys,

    We can't be there physically either, but know that we will indeed be praying with you. We also have illness in our house, and although we *shouldn't* be contagious by this point, we don't want to risk bringing you any yucky germs. We'll hope to be very virally effective in the Spirit on your behalf. :)

    Praying for wisdom, for peace, for clarity, and for healing (well, duh, of course!) We prayed for you guys this morning at WOW too.

    Lisa and Jeff

  9. Words cannot begin to convey how we feel for your sistuation. We will be praying for you. This walk is a most difficult walk.... how we all value "normal life at home". I pray life can be "normal" for you this week!
