My son has been battling lymphoma for the past 7 months. His doctors were telling us that he was doing great, wonderful, 8 treatments and then a year of monitoring. Now they are telling us they want to do a stem cell transplant. Something inside of me is telling me no, not to do this.
We are at a great hospital, although not one of the leading lymphoma hospitals. I am concerned that because my son is young and has a better chance of recovery versus an older person, that they may be wanting to do this to up their statistics.
We do have another appointment in one of the leading lymphoma hospital here for a second opinion.
My trust is with God, however, these doctors frighten me. It seems they are more concerned with strictly the medical and don't realize there is a real person here with this illness, not to mention a ton of friends and family who care for him tremendously. I am so confused and slightly angry with their change, when all along they have been telling us that things are going great.
Today, they caused my son and me doubt, confusion and fear.
Please pray with me that this new doctor will be understanding, honest and faithful and realize it a human he is dealing with that has this disease. Please Pray for peace, understanding, knowledge and complete trust in the Lord for us, especially my son, that we may know that He is guiding and directing us. May this decision that we will eventually have to make come from God's love.
Thank you and may God bless you all abundantly.
