30,000 + 2 worshiped on Sunday Morning!
Thanks to live streaming we were able to attend worship with the National Youth Gathering in Detroit. It was wonderful to worship through this technology and hear the word, and celebrate what looked like a busy,tiring, energetic, challenging Youth Gathering. I still am amazed at how we can worship with various congregations, via, computer, and live streaming. It really is wonderful when we are not able to “get out” and worship in person.How much Jeff will even remember I do not know, but I am amazed at how he can manage to get through all the remote controls, and technology challenges in the blink of an eye, while I still try to figure out how to turn the TV on!
Today we went into the clinic for regular blood work and fluids. It is always good when they can give him some fluids IV because I get the evil eye when I bring out another water bottle. This round I tried to mix it up more with power aids, and some flavored water so that he would drink more because we did have some hot days. Jeff is trying to wean himself off the pain pills and the anti nausea pills so that he is more alert and moving back in to the everyday world instead of “chemo land”. It can’t happen overnight so we take it one step at a time. I threatened to put mittens on him last night because where he gets the injections in his stomach starts to itch as the skin blisters. But he fell asleep and left the burn patches alone. We do not want him getting an infections in his skin due to scratching.
Thanks for all of your prayers and support on this wild journey! It really means a lot to us!
