Update on Charity - Monday P.M.

"What then shall we say to these things?
If GOD be for us, who can be against us?"
Romans 8:31

  • A Praise! Charity was taken off her Blood Pressure medication this afternoon. Her blood pressure is stable now.
  • The Doctors have found that the bacteria that is in her blood is a certain kind that tends to congregate in the heart. They say she has a leaky valve, and are now deciding whether they should send a scope with a tiny camera down her throat to get better details of her heart. Please pray that if this is necessary, Charity will not be in much discomfort, and that they will find all is well!

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the Love of GOD which is in Christ Jesus our Lord!"
Romans 8:35 & 37-39

Charity update and prayer specifics

As of this morning Charity is about the same as yesterday but with seemingly better spirits.

Yet regard the prayer of Your servant and his supplication,
O LORD my God, and listen to the cry and the prayer
which Your servant is praying before You today.
1Kings 8:28

Please pray :
  • That the Thrush that is greatly troubling her in her mouth would be quickly cured so that she can be able to eat and get the needed nourishment to gain strength.
  • That the antibiotics would kick in and quickly destroy the bacteria (unfortunately the antibiotics are not helping with the Thrush problem at all!).
  • That her spirit would be encouraged to rise above all the pain and discouragement and to trust God to get her through all this!
  • That she would be able to get into a regular room soon (she is still in ICU) so that mom can stay with her throughout the night and she would be able to become more comfortably situated and we can visit her more easily.

We greatly appreciate all the prayers that have been lifted up for us and the help that has been offered! May our Lord richly bless you all!

"For where two or three are gathered
together in My name,
I am there in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:20
