"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

This afternoon

I just spoke with one of the Palliative Care Doctors.  This afternoon we are going to give Rachel a suppository because she still has not had a bm since Sunday.  If she comes through ok, we will try and do this regularly - hoping that if the amount of bm is lower and more regular, it will put less strain on her heart.  We are timing it when the Doctor is more available to be here. Please pray for us.

Thank-you to everyone who has sent notes, and gifts!  I put pictures of some of the gifts on the blog but there have been so many many more....you keep giving in a wide variety of ways - and we value each of the many ways you are expressing your love for us.  Thank-you for expressing a desire to come see Rachel too - We love you!! and we would Love to Share her but we feel a need to spend this time as a family as well as getting some regular normal day stuff done. I know you understand.  We know you are loving us from a distance.  Keep praying.  Thank-you:)
