John 1:10-12

“He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,”
 
Remind us daily that God turns wounds into scars and that I need to use those scars and reach out to others.

5/29 STEWART: Well, Keith is in the 0.5% and has to stay at least 1 more day. His white count rose again. Repeat scan and cultures. With all the ins and outs of hospital stays and visits they are checking on other possible infections. If scan is good they may pull his drain tube and send him home tomorrow. Disappointed but he is in the right place. So we’re being joyful in Hope that he can come home tomorrow. Not doing well on the patience part. Know God is in control and our faith is in him to provide the knowledge to his medical team. 
 
AM Short update. 99.5% chance he comes home tomorrow! Took the heart and O2 monitors off tonight. Doctor said no antibiotics needed after discharge. He had a good breakfast and decent lunch but then his poor shrunken stomach said no more. Boost for dinner. Expect to hear cheers when we’re in the car and headed home.
 
5/28 STEWART: Thank you Lord! All went well, took 1 hour and Keith is doing great. He actually had an appetite. Doctor said if things stay on course he should come home Monday. Drain in for a few weeks, IV antibiotics now but home on oral ones. Had some pain early one but even that has decreased. Thank you all. Cathy
 
5/26 STEWART: It has been a week since Keith came home. He has definitely got the resting part down pat. Routine blood work today that caused a small flurry of activity. Blood drawn and home. An hour later we have to go back for type and cross. He’s down a few pints which he will get tomorrow morning. His white count rose so one chest x-ray and urine test later, home we came. Chest x ray looks good. Last night his temp hit 100. Tylenol and fluids worked well. Today it rose to 99.7 so hoping tylenol works again. Since his normal temp is around 97 to 97.5 we have a few concerns. Something is brewing. See the surgeon tomorrow afternoon for possible staple removal. His incisions look great. He just likes keeping us on our toes. God has given us so many blessings thru this journey and we are thankful. Say an extra prayer for us. He really, really doesn’t want to go back to be admitted. His appetite is non existent but drinking his calories. Weighed 135 at discharge and 138.8 today. Small victories. Cathy

5/19 RACHEL T.: Father God, you are my provider. You promise protection and provision for me, so I come to you today asking for immediate and practical help. Lord, I need and ask for your intervention and help. I ask for relief and a specific solution to the problem. Bring the right people together to solve this in a creative and timely way. Lord bring hope and faith and a relief from fear and a sense of despair. You promise in the Bible to “make a way where there is no way.” This is time for that kind of miracle! Cut a new path through this impossible jungle. Save and then bless this home! Your name is “Provider.” You love to prove yourself in this way. We humbly acknowledge that without your help, I am helpless. But with you I pray, ‘I can’t, but you can, please do, thank you!” In Jesus’ name I pray.” Rachel

He will remain in ICU for another day as his hemoglobin and hematocrit are low. He is wired for sound! Everything is being closely monitored and he is otherwise stable.

4/9 JOHNS: It looks as if Jeff will be released from the hospital Monday (Tuesday at the latest), if all continues to go well the rest of today & into the morning. He is anxiously looking forward to getting home and continuing his recovery there. He’s really not in much pain, which is a blessing. Life style changes will include changing his eating habits & no longer being able to lie flat to sleep. Again, thank you all for your continued prayers, encouragement & well wishes. Becky
 
4/7 CPC: Our sympathy is extended to Rev. Philip Makari and family. His nephew has passed away.
 
4/5 JOHNS: Update on Jeff: A minor set back today for Jeff. He is struggling to get his lungs inflated after the surgery, as they had to deflate the right one during surgery. Another drain tube had to be inserted to get rid of accumulating fluid in the chest cavity. The good news is that the cancer in that area is gone. Praise the Lord for that! Thank you for your continued prayers. Becky
