Tests are done... and we wait

It's sooo frustrating. Yesterday at 10:00 all of Clayton's tests were done. We've been told the Radiologist, Oncologist and the whole team reviews the findings then meets with us regarding diagnosis and treatment. This waiting time is the hardest. It's like we sit around knowing that all of these other people know what our future holds and what is going on with our son, but we dont.

We discussed driving back to Waco overnight, but decided not to in case the hospital called us for more tests, etc based on their findings. We are really missing our kids, they are missing us, and we want to be together as a family again. You just don't realize what a special gift being together is until you're forced to live without it. It's so hard. My girls are getting upset about not having their mom. Clayton is asking to go home.

Last night clayton asked me why we were at the doctor because his ear is sick, but nobody is checking his ear. They're checking everything else. Such a hard hard question to answer. He's scared, acting out and ready to move on.

As you can tell by the pictures, he's not sick, so this is confusing to him. So, please pray that we will have the best possible news tomorrow morning at 7:45. Please pray that we will be able to see our kids this weekend. Please pray that Clayton will have a peace in his heart right now too. I know he's getting scared. Our family REALLY needs your continued prayers. Love you all.


  1. Absolutely! Our entire family, both the Oakleys and the Schmidts are lifting up this 'holding' period. Thank you for sharing and posting what's going on and how we can be praying for you. We pray peace over your girls and Cort - comfort that they can watch and understand that their parents are AMAZING parents. We claim continued health in both body and spirit. We pray complete freedom from this illness and believe GOD IS BIG ENOUGH to handle more than we even know to ask for. ~Karen Oakley

  2. We are in continual prayer for your whole family. This was on my calendar for today and I thought of you: "The best thing I can know during a difficult time is that the One who allows the difficulty is the One who loves me more than anyone else in the whole universe does."

  3. There is a scripture that is so special to the Hunt Family. "I can do all things through Christ who stregthens me." Phil. 4:13 Put this on your heart, because I know you all have the strength of our God. Clayton and his wonderful family are in our continued prayers. Much love and God bless,

  4. We are in prayer for your family. I'm praying specifically for you to have wisdom in what you share with Clayton, insight into what he already has sensed or knows, and deep, deep belief that God is in control even when everything around us would indicate otherwise.

  5. Kesleigh, You have always been so beautiful, inside and out! I am truly sorry that you are experiencing so much pain over your child's diagnosis. You are such a strong person, even in the face of opposition and you have always been. Don't you let that big "R" word change who you have always been! Suit up in your Christian armor and you fight for that little angel with every fiber in which God created you and at the end of the day (and the beginning for that matter) rest in His arms and regain your strength. I can only imagine the gamut of emotions in which your heart and brain are cycling. Wasn't it you umpteen years ago that sang "Trust His Heart" at graduation?
    When you can't trace his hand
    When you don't see his plan
    When you don't understand
    Trust His Heart
    I will be praying for you and Chad (Thank God that Chad is such a Godly man - I love to read you bragging on him) for... 1. Peace in your hearts 2. Strength to face each day with your head held high in glorious confidence that only He can provide 3. that others will see your lights shine even in the midst of pain and confusion 4. that through all of this Clayton will walk away healed and renewed - to God be the glory ("great things he hath done" and WILL CONTINUE TO DO!!!) I love you Kesleigh, Kelley D. Warren

  6. The prayer offered in faith will make the sick well; the Lord will raise him up. James 5:15 We are praying for all of you, that Jesus will heal Clayton and provide peace to him and your famnily in the process. Richard & Linda Shields
