pray for melissa and doug

melissa's count continues to hold steady at 1.4. she is still having issues with nausea, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. she is also still struggling with loss of appetite. continue to pray that the medical team will find a resolution to this situation and that she will begin feeling better and stronger as a result.

my heart has been especially heavy for doug today. any time, i am faced personally with a situation that i feel i cannot handle, i immediately think of melissa and doug. i am reminded of the load that they are carrying and the grace in which they do it. i then realize that there is nothing that i cannot face, especially with the lord at my side.

pray specifically for doug as you think of it throughout this week. he is a husband who dearly misses his wife and wants her at home and healthy again. he is a wonderful father to their three children!!! he loves them so much. this week, he took all three(who are ages six and under) out to eat at a local steakhouse. sounds like they had fun. doug is also in the medical field himself. he is a surgeon. he deals with patients who are ill and sometimes dying on a regular basis. he truly has a lot on his plate. pray that the lord will renew his strength, encourage his heart, and give him a fresh hope!!!

love to each of you.....
michelle

While looking for who wrote LIFE ISN'T ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS... IT'S ABOUT LEARNING TO DANCE IN THE RAIN. your page came up.
I stopped a moment and read while listening to the beautiful song.
I will say a pray for better days for your sister and you stay strong.
Most people do not get what is important in life, you do....and that is Life!

So thoughtful of you to ask for prayer for Doug! Often, the spouse is somewhat forgotten. Father, please hold him up him with your arms. Give him wisdom and strength!
