Back in the Hospital

Loved Ones,

We are back in the hospital, this time for three to five days.They are doing their best to discover the cause of Ray's vomiting, suspecting that it is either a fungal infection down his esophagus or a stomach blockage. They will do a stomach scope and most likely some IV nutrition along with lots of medication.We are glad for Ray to have IV medicine as even the liquid forms are not staying down today.

We pray for God's wisdom and timing for the scope. We want it to be done tomorrow but have been told that it may have to wait over the weekend.

If we begin the IV nutrition, we pray for protection from infection as Ray is at risk given his low white blood cell counts.

We pray for God's hand on Ray to heal him of this disease and all these symptoms.

We pray God's hand on our girls that they will be protected from sadness and anxiety while we are gone.

We pray for rest for Ray and all of us tonight.

We pray that all of this will go smoothly and that Ray will recover quickly so that we can be home for Nora's birthday next week.

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

not alone and not afraid --

kristin and ray
