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.
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.
