Prayers Are Answered

I am happy to report that the steroids are doing their job and Ricky’s speech is coming back.  It amazes me that swelling could cause that much of a difference, but it sure did.  We noticed it getting better yesterday and he continues to speak more today.  The best news is that he has not had any side effects!!!  Praise God.  I know that the difference is all of you praying.  Thank you so much!

And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

James 5:15-16

Other than that, no real news to report.  He has gone through 14 treatments and has 19 left to go.  He had a cough earlier in the week that was hard on him during the treatment since he can’t move, but it is way better.  Probably because he passed it along to me!!!  Wonderful.  I would take it for him any day, trust me. 

We carved and painted pumpkins last night and the kids loved it.  We went to a pumpkin activity night at Lily’s school tonight and it was a lot of fun.  I have pics to share and will try to put them up tomorrow.  The kids are ready for trick or treat and can’t wait to get lots of chocolate.  However, they are only allowed to keep 7 pieces.  We are donating the rest to the troops who are overseas.   If a few kit kats are missing from the bag, I don’t know who took them or where they may be!!!  Just sayin…

Take care dear friends!

    Hey, what a great idea about donating the candy! Can you tell me how to get it to the troops? We had very few trick-or-treaters this year and those Snickers bars are calling my name!
