Our son is in trouble


Our son has a super rare brain tumor in the middle of his brain stem called:


Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG)


All Oncologists and Radiologist so far has ruled it a High Grade IV means that these are the most aggressive tumors.


Ian started to exhibit symptoms on Friday, April 15th.


His current symptoms include: 


Vision: He sees double when both eyes are open. He sees normal when each one of his eyes are closed. He has gone cross eyed. 


Speech: His speech is very slow and hard to understand (in Spanish and english)


Equilibrium: He can no longer stand on his own without getting dizzy or standing straight. He cannot walk a straight line and stumbles if not supported


All of these symptoms increase more each day it is is Stage 4 of 4 and aggressively attacking his 3 major systems: Nervous, Cardiovascular and Respiratory system.


Jesus Christ is the beginning and Jesus Christ is the ending. He is the first and He is the last. That means that Jesus Christ is eternal God. "And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End" Revelation 22:13 He is the author of my son’s life and rest in God’s will.  


“A GRAIN OF WHEAT MUST FALL AND DIE IN ORDER DOR IT TO BEAR FRUIT”. This is a quote Hannah and I have begun in prayer together as we endure the road ahead.  


One Keyword on our minds: WITNESS


We have many unsaved souls witnessing our lives, our support team and Christ's Church. We want to pursue God's glory through the response of faith and hope that can only be found in His beloved Son! Who knows our pain!


Although we don’t know God’s plans we have hundreds of witnesses, lost souls in Logroño and friends and family all over the world. Hannah and I want to continue to Find our identity in Jesus and serve him with all we are…Victorious in Jesus’ name!
