One Little Request...

ok, so i am coming to you all today to ask for some prayer but honestly, it's having to do with us here at home. When we were headed home 2 weeks ago, i felt i was getting run down and sick, and sure enough i was, except, it hasn't gone away....Unfortunately the kids also got whatever i have had and we've been sick now the entire time we've been at home....please don't get me wrong, i do not want to complain, but i'm getting nervous for the rough road ahead and the time crunch to get us healthy before we head into what could be the most difficult part of our entire treatment. Miraculuously Colin has been unscathed from our germs, PRAISE GOD!!!! we have been so careful with washing and covering up and with Colin wearing a mask to protect himself, but our God is protecting him, i believe that whole heartedly!!!

I also need to say the biggest thank you to those of you who have been helping us out with meals, with us all being run-down and sick, you have no idea how much this helps, not to have to worry about that, God's Richest Blessings on you all, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I know better than to worry by now, and i don't want to down play any of you out there being sick, this cold/flu going around is a nasty one! So instead of worrying, i am just asking if you could pray a little pray for us to get better and to get strong for what we are headed into!
I won't take any more of your time, I do want to say that Colin is doing ok, still having rough nights with pain and having to take meds for that....we are anxious but we are confident that God is going before us, we are as prepared as we can be, and we know where our strength comes each for that we PRAISE God....for a few more days at home, we are so thankful for our many blessings!
Haven't heard yet for sure when our official start date is, but we are prepared to go whenever they call, or in the medical system, i'm calling tomorrow to see if they have any info for us...heehee, sometimes you gotta be a squeekie wheel, right?!
Thank you in advance for your prayers! I better go get Colin off to bed, he's sleeping beside me on the couch:)
Luv, Melissa


  1. You are all in my thoughts throughout my day - when I walk I pray for you, when I'm cooking I lift you up to God, when I awake in the night I say a pray for you. I'll be praying specifically for you, Melissa, and the boys to recover your health before the radiation treatments.
