Loved Ones,

Ray had a tougher day today. Here's the rub on pressing forward with eating for nutrition's sake. If you eat when you don't feel like it, you throw up. Argh! But if you don't eat, you keep losing. Important when you've already lost 30 pounds. And, as we've learned, it's about all we can do to maintain, much less gain weight. So, a continuing prayer request will be to be on the right side of this balance. Making the most of the days where Ray feels good so that when he doesn't we won't be as stressed. And just keeping the weight on if possible!

The White Sox are killing us! We thought we were going to be thankful for good TV. We think not.

The girls had a great day, filled with art projects from friends. They danced in their Little Mermaid sprinkler with abandon.

We are looking forward to the coming week with hopefully the return of better days. From past experience, Tuesday seemed to be the day Ray turned the corner.

We thank you for your continued prayers for healing, and for all of us. We thank you for emails that remind us that God knows each hair on our heads!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of all 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. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows." 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

not alone and not afraid --
