Update on Papaw

I forget that there are people who aren't on FB that I need to update. Found this picture from last year of LG and Papaw. He has taken a turn and I am afraid to say that it isn't for the better. He went into the hospital yesterday morning where they drained 40 pounds of fluid off of him. He is very jaundis as his liver is shutting down. The drs. sent him home from the hospital tonight. This may be a little much information but I am risking it by asking for very specific prayer. They are meeting with the oncologist Friday to determine whether or not to do chemo. Matt is with him during this time and I am so glad. How much we take things for granted. Will continue to keep you updated as we know anything new.

"Be careful, keep calm and don't be afraid. Do not lose heart." saiah 7:4. God impressed this verse on my heart this week and it seems to apply to you all as well He is faithful and His plans are not always our plans. I will be praying.

I have not stopped praying for Ralph, Gail, and you & Matt since I heard about his cancer. You are all loved so much.
