We just spoke with Eric’s mom in the hall and she said that the doctors tell her Eric may not make it through the week. Some of you may remember that Eric spent a few weeks in ICU with Aaron. Eric has AML (like Aaron) but also has aplastic anemia. It seems to be the aplastic anemia that is the big problem for Eric. Anyways, we would greatly appreciate it if you would join us in praying for this family that we have been through so much with. It is awesome to see how Eric’s mom is trusting God. She has a faith in God that is absolutely amazing. Her most common phrase is “God has the last word on everything.”
Aaron will be finishing his last dose of chemo tomorrow morning. We hear that we will then be discharged to the Tiverton for about 3 days and then sent back to the hospital while Aaron is neutropinic (no white cells) for a couple of weeks. Please, also pray for protection for Aaron while he has no immune system. He had a pretty crummy day today–he felt nauseous and restless.
Many thanks to all of you who demonstrated so much love toward us through the fundraiser. Many of you put so much effort and work into making such a beautiful thing possible. It was such a blessing to be able to attend. We have been so blessed by God! Words fail to express how much gratitude we have in our hearts.
This trial that we are going through certainly has not been fun but it is so amazing to see how much good has resulted from it. It is certainly true that God can turn a curse into a blessing! Aaron and I know very well that we are serving God right now, just in a different way and in a different place.
Thank you for continuing to keep us in your prayers. We know that the joy, peace, hope and strength that we have is from God in answer to your prayers. God’s richest blessings to all of you!
