Hi all.
Melissa here– Jake’s busy making SpiderMan-red frosting for Foard’s birthday cake.
Just wanted to update yall and give you incredible pray-ers a new list.

Pray for no more fevers!
While were were at the hospital today, she (conveniently) spiked another fever, and it continues now. The doctors aren’t worried, but we’d love to see it go.

If we have to endure a fever, at least we get some good snuggles in.

Pray for no more port drama!
Her port has turned… again. So she continues to have all her needles & IV a la hand/elbow. So frustrating, and feels like such a waste to me. The doctors say that they’ll just leave it alone for now, remove it during surgery if they have to, and come up with a different plan for the last two rounds of chemo. Bah.

Pray for surgery on September 24th!
We just received word of the date today.

Pray for my dad’s arrival in Prague!
He’s flying standby and hopes to be here to help Ooh-la-la run the ship during E’s surgery.

Pray for Foard’s birthday (September 18th)!
The Lord is so kind & faithful– it appears that everything is timing out just right so that we get to celebrate Foard’s birthday without an accompanying hospitalization. But we have to hold that in an open hand. I think missing his day might put me over the edge, so pray that we’ll stay hospital-free until the 24th!

Thank you again– we are reminded every day of your faithfulness and your prayers (especially when we cannot pray ourselves!) We are blessed beyond measure.

    • Hi Melissa!! We have been praying regularly for you all and that precious baby girl :). I love the snuggle picture!

  6. Hang in there! Glad your parents are able to be there with you. Love to you all from Georgia.

  7. Can’t wait to see pictures of this “super” birthday! Oh that precious Eliza just folding into you Melissa! Such a great visual of Jesus’ ministry on earth to the little children and those who were sick. May every detail fall into place for the family, especially Eliza! 🙂

  8. Big prayers for healing and a great birthday party!


  9. so sorry the port has been so problematic…when they work, they’re a dream! and when they don’t…well, they’re not…praying for ports to work well is totally within my skill set 🙂

  10. Prayer and positive thoughts are being sent your way without ceasing from Jackson, GA for precious Eliza and the entire family. Praying that the port issue can be resolved, fever will come down, other rounds of chemo and surgery will go smoothly, and that the birthday boy will have the entire family at home for his celebration. God is holding you tighter in his arms as your earthly world seems to be coming apart at the seams and as you already know He has great big loving arms! Love to you all! Janie, Tommy, and T. Carmichael

  11. Praying for you guys! Let me know if there is anyway to help!
