As some of you may or may not know, Jordan has recently been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Ewing sarcoma. I just created a CaringBridge website. I'm updating both the blog and the web page at the same time. Here is my very first entry over at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jordanschroeder copied and pasted into our blog:
I can't believe I'm doing this. We actually have a blog. This reminds me of our blog. Just this one is for sick people.
I hope to update this site and our blog simultaneously (thank you copy-and-paste). Some people know of our blog, some don't, some people know of Jordan's illness, some don't.
Selfishly, I'm trying to rally as many prayers as possible because I believe in the power of prayer and we are in need of a miracle.To clarify and make sure that there's no misinformation going around I should start out with a brief timeline of what's been going on with us of late. It shouldn't take that long; after all, it's been less than a month since I called the doctor's office to make an appoint for Jordan per request because his activity level had been decreasing as his pain increased. But it all seems like one very long nightmare and I don't want to right now.
Suffice it to say, it will take a miracle of God if Jordan lives longer than 24 months. So, that's what we're asking people to pray for. We're claiming the promises of the "peace that passes understanding" and the "joy of the Lord as our strength." I'm very willing to forgo feelings of peace, rest, hope, etc. I actually don't want a feeling, I want a miracle.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Phil 4:6
As you lift us to the Throne, let your request on our behalf be for a miracle of healing in Jordan's body. Thank you.
