A turn

Within hours of when I posted last, Abby developed a pretty bad headache along with the usual vomiting. She spent most of the evening last night on the couch. We all prayed fervently that the Decadron we gave her between the times she got sick would be absorbed enough to remove the headache. Even little Elizabeth asked to pray for Abby's headache.

We praised God this morning when Abby's headache was gone, but she was left with some more significant weakness on her left side and spent most of the day sleeping. This evening she asked that we all read the "funnies" (comics) and play a round of Scrabble. That was a fun time together.

We now have her on 6 mg. of Decadron a day (instead of 4 or less which we were hoping for). We will see our oncologist tomorrow some time to discuss the increased dose.

Please pray that we will continue to keep our eyes on the God who holds the future and knows our trials.

Will be praying for you guys...:) I find this verse from Isaiah very comforting: "Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Isreal, "My way is hidden from the Lord, and my right is disregarded by my God"? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, and His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might He increases strenth. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted. But those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint. from Isaiah 40
