Surgery postponed...

George postponed his surgery to have the port put in because since Wednesday he has not been feeling well. He has had an elevated temperature on and off and has been experiencing cramping and all that goes along with that. We have gotten his temp down but he is still battling the stomach issues and has not eaten much. Please keep him in your prayers, as I know you do. This is his week off of chemo so we are believing that he will be feeling better and be able to have the port put in next week sometime. I wanted to update the blog since he hasn't been feeling like doing anything.

Our eyes are fixed on Jesus and we realize that God never said life would be easy. The one assurance we do have is that He is with us in the midst of it all. We love you all and thanks for staying in touch through the blog.

Thanks for the update. Russ and & join you in prayer, as always. Please advise what else we can do at this time. Russ is in town until Monday morning and then out again the rest of the week. It doesn't sound like a good time for Russ to visit, but if I'm wrong about that let us know. When George is ready to have his port surgery, if he needs someone to take him, maybe Russ will be in town.
We love you both very much. Have a blessed day, and give George a big hug for us.

Hello George, my name is Stephanie Pike. I work at Colonial with Darlene. She gave me this link and I wanted to let you know that I am praying with you and your family. God has his way of working things out and he has his hands on all of you. Remember- "It was then that he carried you". Keep your head up and stay strong.

I read this in a little book I have and wanted to share it with you.
"And a man shall be as...the shadow of a great rock in a weary land."

Journeying one night in the wilderness of Central Africa in a section plagued by many ravenous beasts, we found no place of safety till we came to the shadow of a great rock, where we sat down with our backs to the rock and, building at our feet a great fire, found rest and refreshing for the next day's still weary journey.
O weary child, when thy strength fails and thou canst go no further, sit down and lean back in the shadow of thy Lord, upon Him. Build there in prayer the fire of FAITH and find rest and refreshement for thine onward march!

You and your family ARE mighty in Christ! As I found myself complaining today about (small stuff really) I was instantly convicted when I read today's blog.
Wil and I are continuing to BELIEVE and STAND with you!
You are VICTORIOUS!!!!
