Today was a tough recovery day for my little guy, but he did it! He hasn't walked the halls yet, but he has stood up and sat up in a chair. He's also now wearing his little Under Armour "Protect this house" Baylor shirt which always makes him feel better. And dear Jesus.. Please protect this little house of his.
We have had numerous nurses and staff stick their head in the door to see the kid whose kidney scan looked like it did and ended up defying the odds and proving the scan wrong. It's an amazing opportunity to tell these guys what a work God is already doing in him.
This morning we had our oncology team come in and check up on Clayton. The weekend team consist of a "Fellow", and 2 residents. As they were in talking with me, they were also sharing their amazement about the kidney situation. I then told them that many friends and family are praying for Clayton and as you all pray for clayton, you also pray for his "Team" which would be them. I told them to expect amazing things and be ready for greatness because God is greater. I noticed two of them looking at me like... Yeah.. Ok.. but one had big tears in her eyes.
This morning when Clayton was hurting while he had to sit up, I asked him, "Clayton.. do you want me to pray for you?" In his cute little voice he said "Yes." Well, on I went with a room full of nurses who were helping, praying for a little boy who doesn't deserve anything he's getting, is unaware of the danger inside his body, and who trusts in a great God to make his tummy feel better. Precious sweetness... Lord Please Protect my baby!
As a side note.. I've made a commitment that when we leave here, the Castles will be donating a room up on the 16th foor full of Pinatas, Bats, Dishes, Old Ceramics and a punching bag all for parents who need to just go somewhere, throw punches and delight in breaking things. It's going to be an awesome success and one that is much needed in this place. It's okay to be mad. It really is. Satan better flee from my baby because Momma's Mad!
Love you all! Please keep praying that clayton's cancer is already being treated even while we wait for Treatment. Please pray that God is already working his miracle inside my little boy.
