A Quiet Day

Loved Ones,

Ray had a quiet day filled mostly with sleep as he recovers from the chemo. We are glad he was able to rest. He has a lot of fluid accumulation but no vomiting. We praise the Lord for control of the vomiting and pray that the fluid will be manageable until we can get it drained. We are glad so much of these things can be done from home: fluids, chemo, IV nutrition, IV meds, etc. And, we are glad for nurse sisters to help out as we have learned that home health means you do a lot of it yourself!!

With Ray resting it was really nice to be with the girls who did karaoke and played. Our highlight was build a bear where the girls made bears with a special message from daddy that they can play back by pushing the bears' hands. Treasures.

We pray for rest and restoration for Ray and all of us. We continue to pray for wisdom and freedom from anxiety. We are grateful for this weekend together. We pray that God would work healing miracles through this chemo.

"May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. As smoke is blown away by the wind, may you blow them away; But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.
Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds -- his name is the LORD— and rejoice before him.
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Summon your power, O God, show us your strength,
O God, as you have done before." Psalm 68:1-3.19, 28

not alone and not afraid --
