Prayer Request

My mother-in-law, in her battle with ovarian cancer, has already been through surgery and a round of chemotherapy. She was doing well, but with only one treatment left in her second round of chemo, she took a dramatic turn for the worse.

She was admitted to the hospital on Monday morning with pneumonia and began to decline rapidly. By that afternoon she was moved to the ICU and listed in critical condition. In addition to the pneumonia, she has been diagnosed with a skin and blood infection.

Thankfully, she has somewhat stabilized. She is currently on a ventilator, but the doctors hope to wean her off of that soon.

Throughout all of this it has been a blessing to see her faith remain strong. We have a sovereign God who is in control of all things, and therein lies our hope.

Still, it's never easy to see a loved suffer, and it has been especially hard on my wife. We would appreciate your prayers for healing and comfort. Thank you.

I lost my mother to cancer a few years ago.

Praying for you and your family brother.

I don't remember how I first stumbled across your blog, but I have been reading it for a while now. I don't often comment because the topic is one where I can easily find myself getting "sucked in" more than is good for me as a woman!

But I did want to comment here, to let you know that I am praying for you and your family.
