Brad had a difficult night last night....more fever...more coughing spells. We both went to sleep finally at about 5:30am and slept for several hours. Fortunately we have not had a night like that in a really long time. Brad did have a little more energy today....once we finally pried ourselves from the bed. He has had to rely on the oxygen mask most of the day.

We covet your prayers for good sleep and more energy tomorrow. We love you all.

Continual prayers for you all. I can remember a time I had the hardest time letting go and letting God do my worrying. It is so easy to just hold on to that worry. At a recent ladies retreat, we all wrote down our biggest worries and then tied them to a helium balloon and released the balloons to God...I'm praying so hard for you all. We love you.

I pray that you all are sleeping soundly right now and that the cancer will recede as you rest. I pray that the Lord will take away the cancer and significantly extend Brad's life (I'm thinking of the story of King Hezekiah). Lastly, I pray that you all have an unbelievable peace about the whole situation, and are able to relax and have a great day tomorrow.

Your family has been lifted up in so many different settings in which I am a part. I will pray for good rest for you both and relief from coughing. Thank you for sharing your story and keeping your friends, family, and even people like me who are only beginning to know you up-to-date. Your family is precious.
