Please keep praying for Mom. Although she is almost over the most critical stage and is slowly starting to feel better, the leg is still quite painful and the blood clot could still break off. Her leg is no longer swollen, and it only turns purple if she walks for more than a few minutes. She slept well last night for the first time in four nights.

I've been forced to get over my ginormous phobia of shots, injections, and anything to do with needles. I think I can finally give her an injection without blacking out. We hope she will be able to cut down soon to just one injection per day.

Grandma is here and has been a huge help. Also, our church has been wonderful! They have brought meals, driven us to appointments, and offered their complete support. We are truly blessed and are so thankful to have this fellowship. On top of all that, we know there are people praying for us all over the world. Thank you!

GOD IS ALWAYS GOOD. He uses these things to teach us and draw us nearer to Him.

"It is a dreadful truth that the state of having to depend solely on God is what we all dread most...It is good of Him to force us; but dear me, how hard to feel that it is good at the time."
~C.S. Lewis
