Kristi sent her family a picture of herself and an update this morning. She is "always" smiling. I told her she reminds me of Philippians 4:4-9 " Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS, I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, WITH THANKSGIVING, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will gaurd your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
As you pray today, please pray that her blood count will not go any lower. It is low enough this morning to consider giving her a blood transfusion. Also pray that her pain medication will give her relief from the needle entrance and from the pain of laying flat on her back. The pain medication is causing an allergic reaction making her itch on her legs, which she cannot reach so this is driving her crazy. They are going to give her benedryl to counteract this so she may sleep well ALL DAY!! This would not be bad, since sleep would help pass the time and she did not sleep well all night. Pray also for Billy and the kids as it is hard to be concerned and unable to be with Kristi. Pray that the radiation destroys every spot of cancer and that God will protect Kristi from any long term effects from this radiation.
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth in named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man. Now to HIM who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to HIM be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen Ephesians 3:20
Thank you for your love and friendship to our family. We are all finding encouragement and strength in your posts on the blog and personal calls and emails. God is so good to give us HIMSELF and one another!! We thank God for you!! Danina
