Friday morning

Midday Update:

Heart monitor is off, and the stitches are out from my biopsy site. The EKG and chest x-ray came back looking fine. I'm not sure why I had an accelerated heart rate last night, but it's not altogether uncommon for me. The fever I had was very low grade so we won't be making any major antibiotic changes.

Sometimes the nights are so long. After posting last night I started in with a fever -- low grade, but enough to start the usual pre-emptive strike of chest x-rays, blood cultures and antibiotics. In the meantime they feel my heart rate has been too high, so I am also on a heart monitor this morning. I'll keep you updated. In the meantime, please pray for Livi. She's a little one battling so hard right now, and my heart aches for her this morning.

WE will be praying for you today and for Livi.
I was glad to see that you did not need a transfusion yesterday and that you were able to have a restful day.
I am reading a book by Randy Alcorn right now called "Heaven". It is pretty neat. If you are looking for something to read while you are in the hospital, maybe someone can get a copy for you. I have been having a hard time putting it down and that is unusual for me with a non-fiction book!
Many blessings to you today!
Love, Gina

Praying for you today.

"The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."
Isaiah 40:28-31

My daily scripture reads:

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord, even the Lord, is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation."
Isaiah 12:2


Prayers for you, Amy. And of course, prayers for sweet Livi.

Amy, want to share some of my daily studies this morning.

The following is from "The Daily Word". The abundance of God enriches my life. I am blessed beyond meassure. I meet each day with the certainty that my life is full and complete as I affirm the truth: All that I am, all that I have, and all that I give are provided by the abundance of God's universe.

I give thanks for the abundance of God and the richness of the universe. Whether health, shelter, finances, safety, or friendship is my focus, I know there is more than enough good in the universe to provide for me.

I am inspired to bless others, and in return, my own life is filled with unlimited blessings. I receive all this in faith and with gratitude. Freely sharing with others from the abundance of God, I contribute to a cycle of giving and receiving. As I give, the universe responds with greater abundance.

I am blessed beyond measure.

"See if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing." - Malachi 3:10

I will keep these words in mind as we pray for your return to good health. Love, Papa & Meam

I have not written or replied before but have been following your blog for about 6 months and praying for your family. I know we will never meet in person in this lifetime, and yet the courage with which you face these challenges has touched me in a real and dramatic way. Thank you for being willing to share your journey!

My prayers and thoughts for you and Livi,
