The good news is that she is now beyond the critical stage and is out of immediate danger. However, she does have some residual effects, and is just beginning the daunting process of rehab to address these issues. Our family continues to appreciate your prayers for her as she walks this difficult portion of life’s journey.
I would also request prayers for my uncle, with whom I was able to spend some time while with my family. He has been diagnosed with lung cancer that has now spread throughout much of his body. He is now under hospice care, and bravely living each day to its fullest.
As a Pastor, I am often called upon to support families during such times in their lives. This past week, however, my family and I have been on the receiving end of that equation. In the process, I have been reminded of just how much the love and support of fellow Christians means during life’s difficult times.
On behalf of my entire family, therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the voluminous outpouring of love and support that has come our way over the past week.
The numerous phone calls, text messages, cards, flowers, and the like have all meant more than we can say. Above all, we thank you for your prayers. They have been warmly felt.
The Lord willing, I will return to blogging the first of next week. Until then, may God bless you all for your understanding and forbearance.
