"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

Rachel just had a spell - the worst one since our drive back from Manitoba.  She had been sleeping for about three hours and I was feeling a bit nervous about that so I woke her up and it started soon after that.  Dave's mom played with the kids downstairs and Dave arrived just in time to help give her the first dose.  We gave her the maximum amount.  Her breathing was especially 'rattly' this time.  Our palliative care doctor suggested taking her outside to see if the breeze would help her to breathe. Not sure if it helped.  It seemed like forever until she started pulling out of it.  This is so hard.  I was having such a good day and our world was just rocked again.  Thank-you for your prayers.

I always love hearing the great updates like the one on Monday. But I always hold my breath - because I feel like that means another bad one is coming... I am praying for you and your family, and that cute little peanut...
