Update on Malachi
Malachi is living with us as foster child but I have known the family for a long time. He is gradually getting to where he can move around slowly without too much pain. He is still all bandaged up from the surgeries and lines. Next week on the 31st he will have a bone marrow biopsy again. We are only able to continue as foster parents through the 31st of this month because my wife must return to work. She has not been able to work since this began five weeks ago and she must work so that we can maintain our own health insurance.
I spent eight hours yesterday in a courthouse hallway waiting for a hearing in family court concerning the chidren's custody. The judge basically did a Judge Judy imitation and it was difficult to communicate to her the seriousness of the situation about Malachi. He will probably need to go back to San Francisco in order to obtain the treatment that he needs. This will probably only require a couple of weeks and then he can return to Oklahoma to take the medication. There are various trials of treatments going on across the country all the time but the one that has the medication that was effective for Malachi is not offered in Oklahoma. It is a sad situation and the father because of his substance abuse has severely complicated the situation.
Thank you for your prayers it is a heart wrenching situation for us. You should hear Malachi pray as he prays as someone who has known the Lord for decades of time.
Thank you for your prayers!!
