This is just a little update on how we are all doing.
About 2 weeks ago Kargen had an MRI which showed that all her tumors had grown some. Her cancer is not as aggressive as origionally thought so this slow growth was good news-if cancer is ever good news-right?
We went to Disney World the Monday after and had an amazing time, I have few seconds to spare right now but will try my best to get some pictures posted sometime. The kids were exhausted and so were mom and dad : )
Since we have been home Vaughn, Emmaus and Silas have all started school. They are doing good and love it!
We are also going full blast into Gerson Therapy with Karagen. This is very intensive, if you want more info, go to the link or google it. She drinks certain juices every hour, receives 5 coffee enemas a day and her foods are completely organic, cooked from scratch and prepared carefully to not deplete the vitamin and mineral content. We rise at 3am every day to give her an enema, this is to stop her tumors from poisoning her body. The theory behind the therapy is to bring the liver back to it's highest functioning state, to rid her body of toxins and to stimulate her immune system to destroy the cancer cells, digest them, then eliminate them. We are a little overwhelmed right now trying to juggle everything, Gerson Therapy is a full time job, and we already have full time jobs. This therapy is to last 2 years at the least, but if God uses it to save Karagen's life it will be worth it. If we lose her anyway, it will STILL be worth it!!!!
God had provided the needs of buying her groceries and her medicines and supplements. We simply could not sit by and do nothing while we waited for the tumors to take over her body. The coffee enemas take her pain away and the juices give her energy, Karagen transformed before our very eyes on this therapy. A HUGE answer to prayer was the only doctor in the US has agreed to be her doctor and oversee her treatment. So far she has charged us NOTHING! Our goal is to save enough money to fly Karagen out to get further treatments from her.
Today I was given a rare gift-time alone at home. Three children are in school, a lady in our church is watching Jachin and GraceyAnna, and Jonathan took Karagen to her doctors appointment in DC. I am trying to catch up on housework and laundry, the things I have very little time to do when Karagen is home due to the therapy.
Thank you everyone for your continued thoughts and prayers!
