Prayer Updates

*Thank you for praying for Skip's grandmother yesterday. She did not break her hip, but unfortunately she is still not doing well. She was sent home and we are not sure how much longer she will have with us. All the restlessness has been diagnosed as Terminal Restlessness. I had never heard of this term, but I did my research yesterday and I think I have a good
understanding now.

My mother-in-law's best friend came to stay with her yesterday so that she could rest. I am so thankful because I know how tiring it has been for her the last week. Please continue to pray that these last moments that Nonnie has on earth will be free from suffering. She is not communicating at all and not eating, so I can't imagine it will be much longer.

My friend Debbie's daughter, who I told you last week has been diagnosed with advanced leukemia, has begun chemo and has responded well to the drugs. She had fluid in her lungs, but they seem to be draining on their own, and she has been blessed with wonderful doctors and treatment. She is in ICU and still needs your prayers to have strength and healing. The family has passed on the message that they see God at work and trust him for Amber. Continue to pray!

Such powerful needs. God knows these needs intimately, as I know you already know this. I pray that He moves in each situation and gives healing and comfort and peace.

I'll keep Nonnie and Amber both in my prayers, Susie. Ninety-two is such a long time to live - I truly hope her last days are peaceful and that this restlessness she's experiencing stops soon.

Rest well, Nonnie, in the arms of Jesus! Thank you Lord for the time you gave her to this family and to this world. My thoughts are with you Susie, and with Skip and his parents and family.
