To keep this easy, we will maintain the updates on Kendra's blog (www.preschoolersandpeace.com).
I updated this to the church website this morning:
They have prepared us for the long haul (both in and out of the hospital). Joe will be in the PICU for a good portion of next week at least. He has multiple systems affected. They have completed CT Scans, Spinal Taps, Viral cultures, and EEG and they want an MRI. He has a personal nurse in the room and a doctor within 10 feet of him and Kendra at his bedside.
Thanks for your prayers for us. For those wanting to pray for doctors: Dr. Montes and Dr. Kallas are making the decisions. Our nurses are: Lisa and Kelly.
Kendra's folks are at our house with the kids and I assume my folks will be heading home today. I appreciate everyone who has volunteered to care for our kids. We will be calling you!
I keep reminding myself that this is the same God I woke up with on Wednesday, He was in control then...and He is still in control now!
We covet the prayers of you and your children.
Many of you have called to ask how we are doing? I hate to take these verses out of the context of Paul's letter to the Romans, but this is how we are doing...
Paul asks the church in Rome: "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?"
