Way to go Team Eliza. We asked you to pray that E would be sent home again with good blood work numbers, not least so we could enjoy the day with our Charlotte friends. Done and done!
Around that table is a crew that added us to their agenda just a couple of weeks ago, and came less than 24 hours off the plane and the day before heading to an English camp they’re working at. They swooped into our house, loaded up the freezer, vacuumed up spiderwebs, tackled a closet and brought form and order to the garage. Plus we just had fun.
This is to say nothing of the even bigger team that loaded them down with supplies and goodies for us. Thank you friends. We are very well loved.
Thanks also to everybody who prayed for Foard’s eye. He woke up happy and not hurting, and was very strong and courageous both times I put his antibiotic cream in today. Sweet boy. He and Sam had a great time with friends today, and didn’t mind at all being fussed over by the Charlotte folks when they got home.
Eliza has to go in tomorrow and Sunday for more antibiotics for the port site, then more blood work Monday. Please pray especially for her eating and drinking. She ate well tonight, but we’re concerned about her getting enough fluids. If the pattern from last round holds, she should be bottoming out today or tomorrow in terms of how she feels, which affects how she eats. Pray that that passes quickly and that she’ll drink more for us tomorrow. And keep praying for the infection in the port to clear up.
These days where M and E go in, not knowing whether they get to come home, are hard. We’re usually pessimistic. M packs a bag just in case. I work some, looking at the phone every few minutes waiting for M’s special beep. It is such a great feeling when the news is good. More normal days. More nights in her own bed. More stability for the boys. More sane bedtimes for us (I tend stay up until all hours when M’s gone). The house just feels happier when they’re here. And we know the doctors are watching E so closely, so when they let her stay we know she’s doing well. Thank you for helping to bring this about through your prayers. Every day we see more and more signs of God’s love for us. He is good.
