    Student #1
    Some of you know I have a senior student who lost his ability to walk and was diagnosed with cancer in October. He finished his last treatment last week (a 2nd dose of high dose chemo and stem cell transplant). Please pray this treatment results in a forever remission. His isolation ends just in time for him to walk across the stage at graduation!

    Student #2
    She is a junior who was in a car accident going home from school. She was wearing her seatbelt but still partially ejected from the car. She has a broken neck and currently has no movement from the chest down. At this point, the extent of her expected recovery is unknown.

    Prayers for both of my students and their families would be greatly appreciated.

    We've had a rough year for our tiny school.

    Both of these students are 3 hours from home getting the best care possible. I visited both yesterday and their strong spirits were shining.

    Bluhhhhhhh - can I just go throw up. My heart is hurting.

    Well, he walked across the stage at graduation, but ...

    Even after 2 stem cell transplants, the cancer is growing in several places. They are restarting chemo, adding radiation, and maybe drug trials. The chemo they will use this time is one they tried before and caused a near-death reaction upon administration.

    I just don't know.

    As for the student who was in a car accident, she has some arm movement and is now breathing on her own. She is making progress.

    I just don't know.

    We are now at the hospice stage. I can't believe this is how it is going to go for this kid. His family and doctors did EVERYTHING possible, ... and still, it isn't going to be fixed.

    So sad. So incredibly sad.

    Sometimes God needs them more. He touched the hearts of many who never even met him, something many "great" people never accomplish. He has been a beacon for those who would consider giving up, and we may never know how his brave struggle has impacted others in a positive way to continue his fight against a killer disease. He touched your heart, and then his story touched all of ours. What a truly wonderful soul he must have been. He is at peace, but I wish I could make your heart easier, which, of course, I can't. Your teacher family is here for you. :hugs:
