Trusting God

Hi all-
We are in Springfield right now, with Gary's sister Jeanni and the family. Things have gone down hill with her, and we are just waiting for the final word from the doctors after they check everything to be sure there is absolutely nothing else they can do for her. She's on life support, kidney dialysis, etc. Most likely, they will be taking her off the machines today and she will be wholly healed.
We have been mostly concerned about her spiritual condition and for the family during this time. Praise the Lord, we found out that Jeanni had been led to the Lord by a friend she'd worked with in the past. There is much comfort in knowing that she is leaving us, but going home.
Of course, this is just hard on the family, as it's been a long 10 months of battling her cancer, and all the complications that have come with it. We are praying that God be glorified.
We are tired, worn out, but have much peace. We are thankful to God to see His mercy through all of this- our church family and my family has been so supportive and helpful. We definitely could not have done this, been here and available to the family, without all their help. We are so grateful to God for you all.
Thanks for praying...and please continue.
