We need your prayers for Joel tonight. His blood pressure has dropped today and is a real concern for prayer. His hemoglobin is acceptable at 9.6, and his heart rate is 127. We would also ask that you pray about his fluid retention. He is experiencing some swelling around his eyes and also the rest of his body. We know that the LORD can handle all of these things and we are casting our cares upon Him. Thanks to so many of you that are standing with us in prayer and faith.
Here are a few verses that were meaningful to me today. Psalm 17: 7-9: “Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, from the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.”
There are small steps that are being taken towards us leaving the hospital. May the Lord work out all the details in His time. He has sustained Joel two weeks since he had the seizures around midnight on January 4. I am so grateful for my little boy, and for his life that is precious to me, and to the Lord.
