Great news again! Don't you love seeing that? As much as you enjoy seeing those words, I enjoy writing them even more! Yesterday was a busy and difficult day again because Dominic had to be NPO (nothing by mouth) for 6 hours, which ended up being 11 hours, oh well, it was an important MRI and test of the cerebral fluid to make sure there is no infection and guess what? Everything lookes very good! Thank you so much for praying for this intention!
I wanted to make sure and mention my thanks again to everyone for EVERYTHING you have done for us. Do you know just how much it means to get your messages of encouragement and love? So many times your insights and verses are exactly what we needed for that moment. All of the cards and gifts, you have no idea how many times Mark and I say, "WOW,my goodness, can you believe it?" All of the meals, the care for the children, I could go on and on... honestly, this is the most memorable and inspiring Christmas/advent we have ever experienced because of all of the love you have shown.
Walking around on this floor, seeing all of the sick children, I feel guilty that we are receiving so much. I think practically every single child here has a situation more dire than ours and my heart breaks for every single one. I feel inspired of course to pray for them and their families, in fact there is a father in the room with me right now breaking down, bawling his eyes out about his son, there is so much suffering here. His son is suffering so much and he cannot take it away. Maybe he is the next prayer intention? Please pray for an 11 year old boy named Matthew. He has bone cancer in the jaw and so his jaw bone was replaced with his leg bone. His father is so grateful for any prayers you can give, he prays for peace for his son.
I want to share a great gift we received last night from a friend Christy Cool. Christy took the time to put Dominic's pictures to music and well, it got both Mark and I bawling. To have such a tribute to our son and family, we are so humbled. Thank you so much Christy for this gift of love!
