To update you on my friends’ little boy: He is doing well and had a good night last night. They are tapering off his meds so he has times where he is conscious enough to want the tube out of his throat! He is frustrated by not being able to talk! His parents ask that we pray for him as he will have to deal with the pain and the restraints–very difficult for a ten year old boy, to be sure. Of course, we are all praying for a full (and quick) recovery. Pray too for my friend and her husband (and their other children)–for strength and rest and that they will be able to support and encourage their son. My friend’s husband writes:
Pray that God will do his work in me as a Dad through this challenge. The Word says He works all things together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose. Pray that I will be that guy who lets God work in me and on my heart to make me the Dad he wants me to be.
