Staying Until Friday

Greg remains in the hospital, and the current outlook has him staying there until Friday. A colonoscopy is planned for tomorrow (Wednesday) to confirm the exact status of his intestine and they are focused on getting his digestion and aftereffects functioning properly again. Any resumption of chemo is pretty much off the table until he can eat and Christine can give a good report to G'pa.

Thankfully, Christine has been able to remain at his side apart from a trip home to get some necessary items. Please pray for her stamina and for relief of her pain as she ministers to Greg.

Please pray for the entire family and the church as we struggle to support both Greg and Christine: that our hearts would be filled with compassion, that our service would be unstinting and without selfish conditions, that we would find the balance both to support them and to take care of ourselves and our families, and that in this time of difficulty the Lord would draw us closer together when the stress threatens to drive us apart.

How blessed we all are to have each other in the Lord!!
