April Update

We knew we were fighting a winless battle but we fought. 
With Jesus at our side, we fought. 
And we lost. 
(Note- Jonathan is still alive...)

Tuesday we discovered that Jonathan's grade 3 brain cancer morphed into grade 4 glioblastoma and it won. This didn't surprise us, we could see it coming. Jonathan wasn't responding to treatment. Tuesday we decided to discontinue treatment and Hospice was called in. I've told the kids. We cried. I let them yell bad words. We cried some more. Henry cried into Jonathan and said, "Dad, I think you'll have the best time in heaven." 

God is still bigger than this and Jesus can fix it. 
He's just not going to do it this side of heaven.
My prayer request is that God is merciful.
