QV family,
Once again I'm asking for you all to pray for my son Cristian. Since his last round of chemo on Thursday, which was delayed for 3 weeks due to low ANC, he's been feeling horrible. He's barely eaten anything and his body aches to the point he crys out in pain. This morning he was running a high off to the hospital! He's been admitted and tests are being run... still waiting for results. Length of stay is uncertain atp. Wtbs, please keep Cristian in your prayers.


Christian's fever is down to 101... improvement from the 104 this morning. He's been given 2 antibiotics, a bolus for dehydration and 1 unit of blood...more to come.
He's very weak but asking for a smoothie...good sign. Thank you all for your prayers and kind words...they mean so so much!

Update 2

After a lot of tests and 2 units of blood, Cristian is feeling a little better. We finally got him to eat a little yesterday. He's neutropenic...low WBC count and his other blood counts are still low but better. His spirits are improving but he absolutely hates being in the hospital! Probably as much or more than I hate him being in the hospital! Thank you to so many for your prayers and kind words.

Update 3

Good news!! There is a chance Cristian may be discharged tomorrow!! His fever broke yesterday morning, thank the Lord! His blood counts are better but still low. He's still having pain in his legs, but not as severe. His dr will evaluate things tomorrow. It's a small chance, but we are hopeful. His spirits are much better... he's laughing, joking around and kicked my tail in Yahtzee and Uno a many times...then proceeded to laugh some more!! Many thanks and prayers to my QV family

Update 4

My son came home this evening!! I don't think the Dr would have allowed the discharge if my wife weren't a nurse. I was doubtful but hopeful this morning as his blood counts are still below normal. I thank the Lord God Almighty for blessing my son and family. I'm also thankful for the many prayers from my QV family. If it weren't for prayer, I don't think Cristian would have bounced back as quickly as he did...Wtbs, the 5 days felt like 5 weeks, but maybe that's just mom and me.

Prayers going up for your warrior. May God’s will be done! 🙏🏻❤️✝️

@TimusMaximus Heavenly Father I ask that you heal Cristian from this horrible disease and that you hold his mother, father and rest of his family in your hands and give them strength for whatever their future holds for it is your will that will be done. Amen. God Bless you and your son and all your family. ❤️🙏💪

@TimusMaximus I am just so sorry. I cannot imagine what you are going through. I read your toot and my heart just hurt for you. ❤️

Thank you for your sentiment. Cristian is in the Lord's hand and I know with all my heart he will get well. Wtbs, sometimes it's hard. Watching my son suffer is painful to say the least. He's my hero, my Superman! He has handled 'things' like a true warrior. Thank you for your prayers, I know they work!!


Lord, Tim and his family are broken with grief, fear, and uncertainty. Please give this family your healing powers.

They know the road is long.

They lift up this precious child to You, and ask for Your healing power to permeate through his frail body and return him to radiant health and strength. Relieve all the symptoms of this unpleasant illness that has invaded Christian’s little body. Guard this child from danger and may he respond to Your healing touch on his life. Amen


Many 🙏's that he feels better and the guiding hands of the Angels offer him comfort.

Hunger is a great sign...💞

@TimusMaximus Prayers and love to Christian,you and your family 🙏 ❤️

Beautiful post. God bless Christian, you and your family.

Hearing laughter from a person who has suffered so much is wonderful

Thank you so much. His laughter is much needed medicine for mom and dad!


That's great to hear, my friend!

Our children's laughter is indeed the most precious thing in this world, especially after something like what you guys are going through.

I wish you all many more years to hear his laughter, in much more relaxed situations.

Thank you Shaul. You are so right! When laughter from your child is replaced by pain and tears, it not only hurts, it leaves a void in your heart. Cristian is normally such a joyful young man. I'm so thankful to see his spark truly warms my soul.


How lovely 🙂

You sound like an awesome dad, and he sounds like a great son, and altogether it seems that you have a fine family.

You did well, and deserve only good in life.

May it be so from now on.

@timr @KathrynK @Mongo3804

Great news 🎉🎉
🙏🙏 Continues as recovery progresses.

@TimusMaximus 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️✔️✔️


Very sorry to hear about your son going through so much pain at such a young age. I will remember him in my prayers.
