Choice #2 is the only thing, IMHO. I will say a prayer tonight and again at 0730 tomorrow.
God Bless

I am horribly sorry for ruining everyones evening with my drama, The messages and words of hope have kept me going.
I certainly don't think that you ruined anyone's evening. You're doing everything you possibly can to save your son's life. Your family will be in my prayers tonight.

All of you will be in my thoughts and prayers, especially your precious son. There are no easy answers in the path you and your beautiful family must walk. Trust the choice you make, love each other -- that's all we can do during uncertain times. May our Father in Heaven hold you all near. Believe in miracles!

As I sit here with my two month old I can't imagine being in your shoes having to make that choice. I wish the best for you and your family and you and yours are in my families thoughts.

I am sure your son will get better.
At least you have a treatment available and with a chance of success. The rest is up to God. Whatever happens, stand your ground and steer away from drinks. God bless you and your family.

Deepest, most sincere prayers and best hopes and wishes for you, your wife, and baby during this awful time of trial, 11b. When I hear of things like this, I have guilt feelings having good health for so long, with only a stroke, bad back, and assorted gripes to complain about. Harrowing as this procedure may be, I feel that that little boy will be vastly improved, and I think you made the right choice, with only the strength of my convictions to support them. Be strong for your family. They need you.

You’ve ruined no one’s evening.

In fact, quite the opposite in offering us a lesson on how precious every second with our kids really is.

Prayer sent to God to watch over your boy and your family this morning, and the days beyond. Have faith in the Lord, and have faith in your son to fight through this. Godspeed.

Man, that is about one of the toughest things a parent can face.

Thanks for having the strength to come here and share with us. Hope everything goes well for your family. Prayers out.
