Over the past weeks Nate has been complaining of extreme pain in his back and legs which was one of the warning signs the doctors told them to be looking for. They spoke with Dr. Bower yesterday and he wanted to move forward with an MRI today to see if tumors were found in the brain or spine which might be causing the pain. Radiologists stated that the MRI results did not show any tumors in the spine but it did reveal a tumor in brain, in the left forehead area. The Dr explained that the tumor location would not be causing the back pain as it is not in a location that would cause these types of symptoms. The Dr did not have any immediate answers and wanted to consult with a team of other doctors on Monday as well as the radiologist to confirm what they are all seeing and then discuss the next steps. Nate will likely have a spinal tap on Tuesday to test as well. Wes and Jackie and the family are all together tonight having a night away and they are both hopeful that God will see them all through this and the days ahead. Please be praying for the doctors that are overseeing the results and Nate's care that they would understand clearly what is taking place and causing the pain and how to best move forward. Please pray for Nate and the pain he is having that God would reveal the source of the pain and would comfort Nate and ease his pain. Wes and Jackie are both so thankful for all the prayers and words of encouragement that have been sent to them today. Let us all continue in prayers asking that the God of all comfort, comfort Wes, Jackie and Nate during this time . "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1:2-4.
