Dad Update 10-16-07

Dad went to Loyola yesterday to begin more chemotherapy. He is still fighting off the MRSA infection and now is fighting a stomach/intestinal infection as well. The discouraging news is that they did NOT begin administering chemotherapy as planned. The reason is because it is no longer effective. Doctors tell him there is no hope down that path. Thankfully, there is a clinical study out there that he may be a candidate for. We are still waiting for more information. Please pray that God will continue to provide dad with physical and emotional strength through this battle. Additionally, the prayer is that he will be a candidate for this study and that it would be effective.

As I got into the van the other day, Rod had WMBI on. The program was talking about Philippians 4:6-7. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." I only heard a few seconds of what the man was saying about it as I wasn't driving far. What he said stuck with me as simple as it was. Don't worry about ANYTHING but pray about EVERYTHING. I just need to keep giving it to God and his peace will help me through the day.
