Update on Becky's Dad

Things here with my dad are about the same. They actually from our standpoint seem a little bit worse. Dad had a very rough day today. He was talking pretty crazy and shaking a lot. They said it was from the toxins in his bloodstream and maybe from all the medication as well. Tonight around 6pm they put him on a ventilator so that he won't have to work to breathe. It seems very scary for this to be the next step, but everyone thinks it is best. He'll be able to rest and allow his body to heal. His kidneys are functioning now at only 15% compared to the 25% yesterday. The doctor said he actually went a little downhill today, so we are just trying to trust in the Lord's perfect will. He is always good. I know this even though sometimes it's easier to focus on the circumstance. Please pray for us that we will grow in Christ by focusing on HIM right now and not on our fears. We thank you so much for your prayers.

Dear Beck and all,
Be assured you are in our prayers continually. God is sovereign, as you know, and will work His purpose in this situation. Keep us posted. The church is praying also. We love you. Give your Mom a hug for me.
