Update and Two More Prayer Requests

{If you're confused, click HERE}
Dad isn't any better, but we are so grateful because we finally got his IV steroids (a few hours ago, when we should've gotten them two days ago), and the nurse came out to give them to dad. She's here right now. Everytime dad gets up he pukes. Mom did some research online and found out that with some MS patients puking is a symptom. It's rare, but it happens. We're praying that after dad gets these steroids we'll see some progress. He's very, very weak, we have to help him go anywhere, and like I said, he throws up everytime he gets out of bed. Please continue to pray for him!

Also, my mom called my Me-ma (my dad's mom) this afternoon and we found out from her that my aunt Sherry is dying (she's my dad's, step brother's ex-wife). I don't know all the details, but she has been battling cancer for years and apparently the doctors have been trying to give her some pills (I think it was pain medicine) and she keeps throwing it up. [If I heard my mom correctly] They put her on an IV to try and get some medicine in her, and they might send her home on hospice. Please pray for her 3 children, my cousins, to be strong and trust in the Lord. I won't give you their names, but my aunt's name is Sherry. God can do anything. He can heal my aunt right now if He wants to. We're just praying, praying, praying that God's will be done. I'm quite close to aunt Sherry's youngest daughter, who is my age and I know this will be (and is) very, very hard on her. She does not deal with loss very well, so please pray for her.

Now, the third prayer request. My Me-ma also told us that my other aunt (my dad's, other brother's wife) is going to the emergency room. We are not sure why, Me-ma didn't have time to explain, but I do know she has had severe health problems, in the past. Please pray that everything will be okay and the doctors will be able to help my aunt.

Thank you so much for the prayer and support through all that my family and I are going through! It's tough, but with God we'll get through it.

I just wanted to let you know that I've been praying for your dad lately, and now I'll put your aunts in my prayers tonight (and other nights as well, if I can remember them) take care and trust in the Lord with all you soul, mind, and heart!

P.S. I have an aunt named Sherry too.

Hey girl... sorry your dad isn't doing well. I feel aweful for him. But feeling aweful isn't enough. I'm praying for him, my grandma is praying for him. And now that I put him on our prayer chain my whole church it praying for him. I'm also gonna call our Christian radio station, and in a couple hours, hundreds of thousands of poeple all over Houston will be praying for him.

I love you girl, if you EVER, EVER need someone to talk to...or someone to get your mind off of things, you know exactly where I am.

Love,
Bleah
