No Room for Brady...YET!

We got a call from the hospital...they are full on the wing where Brady is supposed to be. They are hoping to send some kids home today and will call us later IF something opens up. I'm frustrated and annoyed that his treatment may have to wait until tomorrow. Our plan is to call our oncologist if we don't hear from them by 2pm. Can't we Brady go to another wing/floor? There are MANY kids on that wing with RSV right now, they have to be in private rooms secluded from everyone else. It is just crazy to me to think that they put cancer patients in with kids that have illnesses he can easily catch. Ughhh....

I'll update more when I can later.

UPDATE: 3:45 pm I just got a call from the bed coordinator. It looks like we will have a bed today. She is going to call around 5 and let us know if it is ready. So Brady will be able to have chemo tonight. I should be relieved but now I feel sick. Right now he is a happy boy who is playing in the sunroom like he should be. I hate knowing he will not be in his bed tonight. Yes, I know it is what has to be done, I'm just going through my mommy meltdown right now. Matt will be bringing us up and staying until Brady gets settled. Please pray for Brady tonight. This chemo NEEDS to work, it just has to be doing it's job. Pray that we will continue to lean upon our strong tower in these days few days.

I'll be updating later tonight...


  1. Hang in there, Meg, and keep being persistent. It will all work out. I'm praying for you.

  2. Oh man how frustrating! Don''t worry, its all in God's timing....maybe there is an especially sick kid in the room he was to be in or something...Good luck!

  3. Hey Meg,

    Thanks for the update. You're doing a great job handling a tough and ever-evolving situation. Hug your kids. Take a few deep breaths and a nice, long drink of cold water. Keep taking everything one small step at a time. While it may not feel like it, things are under control and going well. We'll be thinking of your tonight.


  4. Meg&Matt-
    At least you know somewhat to expect. Everything was smooth sailing last time, we will carry you again when you are weak. i'm reminded of when Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son, but God sent a ram all God was looking for was obedience and a trust like no other in Him. God made mommies hearts, He knows when it's breaking. Look for the ram in the thicket, God will provide a way of escape from this evil cancer! You'll be looking back and wondering how you survived! love to you all.

  5. Hi Megan,
    I'm praying for Brady. I hope this next round of chemo goes well. Just wanted to let you know that Tighe had his 2nd MRI at the very end of the 2nd round of chemo. Our chemo is scheduled every 3 weeks, starting on Monday. So, the MRI was on the Friday right before the 3rd round started. That way they could see the most impact from the chemo and knew whether to continue or not. Best of luck to you all.

  6. Meg and Matt,
    My heart goes out to you! It doesn't matter if your son is almost 2 or 33; when they are sick or hurt and you can't really do anyting to make them better, it tears at your 'heart strings'.
    Jodi is right, at least now you know what to expect, not that it makes it any easier.
    Hang in there, our prayers are lifting you all up to new spiritual highs.
    Peace and prayers,
    Deb R.

  7. I'll be praying extra prayers for you guys tonight! I love the pictures. As a photographer myself, I believe it is so important to capture those moments as a family. Wish I lived near you, I would take some of you guys too! Stay strong, hope to hear good news soon!
