Another Day at Home

Loved Ones,

Another day at home. We are so grateful. Ray's family was able to come and be with us for a belated Christmas gathering. It was great to be with them.

Ray was up and down the stairs a few times today and we were so glad he was able to be with us each time. A lot of exertion when you've been in the hospital! We are hoping the IV nutrition kicks in pretty soon to strengthen him. It was a long haul without nutrition, so he is catching up.

He is plagued by mouth sores, but we are doing our best to keep on top of them and hope that there is some relief soon.

Our prayer requests are many. This is a harder time so we pray God's peace, hope and encouragement for each member of our family including our extended family. We pray greatly for strength and courage. We pray for communication to speak the words on our hearts and to battle all of this together. We pray for wisdom and guidance as to how to spend every minute. And we pray for divine wisdom as to how to meet the needs of our girls.

We give thanks for our nurses and doctors who aid us every day. We are so grateful for them.

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9

not alone and not afraid --

Just found your blog (a friend of Amy WB)... I just prayed for your strength, courage, hope and perseverence. Also asked the Great Physician for healing. Thank you for your sharing - I copied all the the Scriptures and "not alone and not afraid" that you close your posts with.
