Lisa here. Happy New Year! Last night was another good night for Brad, and Jenny as well. We are all so thankful for good rest for them! Today was a quiet day around the Wims'--which I think is welcome in some ways. For positive news, Brad spent most of the day only on the nasal cannula for oxygen supply, as opposed to the higher oxygen flow face mask. While he continues to feel very tired, we are encouraged by each little improvement that we see, and thank God. We ask again for prayers on behalf of Brad's spirit--his courage, strength, and peace. He has struggled with this disease for so long, and he longs for his health, strength and restored body. I know those of us around him can see the little improvements he makes every day, but only Brad knows how it feels to fight against something so devastating to your body, and to feel so helpless. Talking from an in-law point of view for a moment, it was amazing and awesome to see this family so close and connected, as we all wept and pleaded before God for Brad's life--what a blessing to be part of this family!! We pray for Brad to continue to make progress every day, and for him to see and feel that progress, and be reassured that God is working His miracle. We pray for Brad to have the wisdom, peace, patience, and comfort of knowing that God WILL heal him, even if it's on His time. Thank you all for your continued prayers, and please keep the words of encouragment flowing. Snail mail cards, emails, texts--send Brad (and Jenny, David, Sandra) words of encouragment whenever you can. More tomorrow.
