Update - Thursday PM

There still is not much change in Rachel's pain tonight. We were hoping the procedure would help things a bit; but that has not happened. It has been hard to see her hurting and not be able to do anything to help her.

She still is having a lot of trouble eating. We meet with the doctor tomorrow. They told us we would be discussing a feeding tube at this visit. She has lost a lot of weight here in the past 3 weeks. However, she is swallowing better than she was - so I am hopeful that we will be able to give it a little more time before having to do a feeding tube.

All PT and OT therapy has been canceled until the doctor clears her to resume again. This is hard; because she needs the therapy to get strong for the start of school. In some ways we are loosing ground that she had gained in the previous therapy sessions now that she is back in bed completely.

We are looking to God for answers. Thanks so much for all your prayers. The many emails and comments that you all have sent have been either read to Rachel or she has been able to read them on her good days. They mean so much to her and to us. Thank you! We can sense your prayers and know that God is working even though we are unsure of all the details. What a mighty God we serve!!

Through the love of God, our Savior,
all will be well;
free and changeless is his favor,
all will be well;
precious is the blood that healed us,
perfect is the grace that sealed us,
strong the hand stretched out to shield us,
all will be well.

Though we pass through tribulation,
all will be well;
ours is such a full salvation,
all will be well.
happy when in god confiding,
fruitful if in Christ abiding,
holy through the Spirit's guiding,
all will be well.

This song had me broken and thankful last Sunday in church as we are facing and dealing with Anorexia with our 15 year old Chelsea. I thought it may bless you too. While we don't understand the "why's" it is good to remember that because HE knows "All will be well!"

Still praying!
