Much has happened since my last blog post. But yet, not much has moved. Please forgive my absence. And thank you for your continued engagement, following, support and especially prayers. Here’s the short story: Liza’s PICC line was put in on Friday, October 2, as I mentioned in the...

PICC Line and Packets

By Scot Pollok on

The last couple of days saw some important activity. Yesterday, Liza went to the local St. Luke's Hospital for her PICC line (Peripherally inserted central catheter). Because of Liza is such a hard IV stick and the imminent stem-cell infusion, we thought it a good idea. In fact, it was Liza's...

Last Day of September Update

By Scot Pollok on

Please forgive me my long absence here in the blog. I know its a good way to "lose readers," but I'm still planning on updating this regularly so that we don't lose prayer. Whether you are a part of our church family - Faith Bible Church in The Woodlands, TX - or not, I hope walking in this...

Fav Doctor and Fav Nurse

By Scot Pollok on

7:07PM Tuesday - This afternoon, Liza had another ketamine infusion with Leslie, our favorite nurse and by now our good friend. For over an hour we caught up with Leslie on all the things that happened and didn't happen in California. As a highly experienced and brilliant nurse, she gives us...

Sunday Evening Update

By Scot Pollok on

8:37PM Sunday - Forgive my blog absence for the past couple of days or so. We were all consumed with landing back at home. There is also not much to report.  As I said before, coming home is welcome and healing, at least in a small way. Being with our kids is clearly the best part. But...

Home with Mixed Emotions

By Scot Pollok on

8:31PM Friday - About two hours ago we arrived home with a very complex mix of emotions. First of all, we both - especially Liza - are thrilled to see our kids again. She's never been apart from them for so long. It is also good to be in our home. Home is healing. Our pets and bed and bathroom...

First Night out of Hospital

By Scot Pollok on

12:44PM Thursday - Last night was relatively simple, except for one surprising detail. Liza rested and I got her med schedule worked out in little cups written with the times and meds written on the side. With just a few phone alarms, the night went pretty smoothly. In my opinion, Liza's pain...

She's Asleep in the Hotel

By Scot Pollok on

3:34PM Wednesday - Liza is now sleeping in the hotel bed, hopefully soundly. I arrived at the hospital just before 10AM because I wanted to clean up the hotel room for her arrival. Plus, the visitor check-in line was very long, so I had to employ my experience of the hospital layout and maneuver...

Three Sets of Corsets and a Walk

By Scot Pollok on

12:43PM Tuesday - When I arrived this morning, Liza was lying flat in bed in average spirits - good but not great. Her night was just okay, but we'll take anything that's not painfully horrific. Abby did a great job caring for Liza yet again.  I ran for coffee and when I returned, Dr. Louy...

An Oldie Comes Back Around

By Scot Pollok on

I've taught this passage before and mention it often. I've known and know people who have lived it. Liza has experienced it. So have I, our kids and our extended family. So have many of you.  It flies in the face of the casual idea that God doesn't give you more than you can handle. I...
