Monday Report

Loved Ones,

Ray had a well timed procedure to drain fluid from his abdomen today. We were so happy the fluid was pretty stable through the weekend and we got into our local hospital just as his oxygen levels started to be impacted. It was very successful and we are thankful. He is doing pretty well, tired from his day but otherwise ok. The 5FU and mouth sores etc. will hit soon so we pray for a little bit of respite until that storm begins.

Tomorrow is our 8th anniversary. The girls and I watched some of our wedding video today and it was precious to recall those days. We pray for joy tomorrow even amidst the challenges of our present time.

We continue to pray for our girls as Ray's struggle is really impacting them. We pray for wisdom in all things related to these precious lights of our lives.

We continue our prayers tonight for restoration and healing for Ray. That he would grow stronger daily and that this chemo would work miracles by God's grace.

"O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago."
Isaiah 25:1

not alone and not afraid --
