“We believe in prayer
We believe in the power of healing
We believe faith can move mountains
We believe in hope, grace and mercy
We believe in miracles”
I love these beautiful ladies and all they do for us.
I’m also thankful for Tom and Dean and Connie and my kids for all their help today.
Abbe, Kayla, Bree and Tanner arrived tonight and Paije and her girls will be here tomorrow. We love having family around.
It was a really difficult day for Amos and hope is what he needs today. Although we got news that his albumin level and liver functions both showed good improvement, his pain and nausea were too intense for him to appreciate the lab results.
I think his pain meds probably need to be adjusted upward again since their effect has weakened.
The most excruciating pain comes when we are draining his stomach and we get close to the end of the fluid. It creates some kind of internal suction that puts his pain level at 12 on a scale of 1 to 10.
This afternoon when he was feeling dispair, I suggested we pray together. He agreed and he offered a plea for mercy from his pain. He soon fell asleep and his brow finally relaxed for a few hours of relief.
