A Day with Lots of Help

Loved Ones,

Ray's vomiting continued to increase last night and this morning and with that and the mouth sores, his doctor stopped the continuous chemo pump today. So far it seems to have alleviated some of the vomiting. It may take a day or two before any related symptoms are relieved.

Ray had a few minutes tonight where he wasn't hooked up to a pump or IV pole. He was happy to be free -- even for a minute.

We are praying for a good day tomorrow, now that the chemo has stopped. And, we pray restoration and healing for Ray as he sleeps.

We had SO many helpers today. I think four different people shoveled or snowblowed our driveway in the ever growing snow. All family members and friends that arrived were put to work! And that helped to get us through.

We thank you so much for your prayers.

"This is what the Lord says: Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing...But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds." Jeremiah 30:12, 17

not alone and not afraid --
