A prayer request and some praise reports
Psalm 68:19 NIV
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens.
Information from: Chelle's email concerning Wayne, Joy's Facebook page, Joey's CaringBridge page.
He has been having radiation and will actually be done with it on the 8th. But for right now it is making him sick and unable to eat much. They are hitting the cancer hard and some of the lymph nodes are right beside the esophagus. Sometime in mid December they will do a pet scan to see how things are going. Wayne could really use some prayer today as he is having a hard time right now.
Thank you Chelle for keeping us up to date.
Thank you all so much for your love, support, prayers, and encouragement. We are humbled by the way our God is using our little girl. Your stories and words speak to our hearts everyday. We are blessed!
Joy is doing well enough for them to try to wean her off of the bypass (ECMO) machine. They have just started doing this now. Please continue to pray for our Joy, we can SEE GOD in this room!
•he has had no more seizures!
• (consequently) sodium holding strong at high 130's with last reading at 140. Really good!
•we just moved back over out of PICU to HemOnc floor. Always the last stop before heading home
We still have concerns and he has benchmarks we need to hit before anybody feels comfortable taking him home, but we are certainly moving in the right direction.
...Thank you TEAM JOEY for praying for us.
Psalm 103:1-5 NIV
Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Thank you for reading and joining in to pray for these sweet, precious people.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels.”
For the sake of my family and friends,
I will say, “Peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your prosperity.
