Bad News...

Mom, dad and Narthea are on their way to the hospital. Dad had an MRI done yesterday, and the doctor just called an hour ago saying there's several new lesions, and one is not in a good spot (though, of course, if you have lesions in your brain, none are in a good spot), so dad has to be admitted to the hospital for the fourth time this year. When they were leaving, he was very, very upset about having to go. He cried and said he's tired of all of this. He kept saying over and over, "I don't wanna go." Narthea went along just to help mom, my grandparents are going up there later to bring her back home.

Please pray for the three of them and their safety, and for dad to have a peace of mind, and know that God is with him.

"Be still, and know that I am God..." Psalm 46:10

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34


For those who are new to my blog and might be confused right now, let me briefly explain: My dad has MS, and sometimes he has trouble with his walking, speech, vision, and can't think clearly (he has many other symptoms, but these are his most frequent ones). Sometimes they cause him to have to go to the hospital. There is no "treatment" for MS, but steroids help with his symptoms and swelling, and dad was/is about to start a new medicine called Tysabri, which we are praying will help.
 
I'll update all of you on my dad's condition as soon as I hear from mom!

I am praying for you. Just remeber that you are not the only one. My mom has been having breathing problems for around a year now. She has been admitted to many times to count. But she is pulling through. I am so proud of her.I am sure your dad will pull through too.

I admire on how you can tell the whole world about your dad's probablems. I can't do that with my mom's situtation.

Always praying,
Zoe

Paul talking in reference to his own physical ailment... (2 Cor. 12:9 NASB)
"And He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me."
