Thursday, July 15 - Another Praise!

Friends and Family,

It's about 12 noon on Thursday and I think I'm about to go to bed!! We ended up at the emergency room this morning around 2:30a.m.

Yesterday Mark started having some pains in his lower abdomen. We called the doctor and decided to wait and see what happened. The pain got better but about 10:00 it started again in a little different place - he felt it was near the colon - it was sharp pain and we couldn't figure it out. Again, the pain subsided so we went to bed but about 2:00 he woke me up and he was in terrible pain - we went to the ER....

The ER doctor checked him out and ordered blood work and a CT scan. After hours of waiting we actually got to see our doctor about 9:30 and he read the CT scan for us.

The drain that was in to drain the liver got displaced on the inside and it was moving around all the areas he was having pain - the part of the tube that was inside him was about 14 inches. So...the doctor took the drain out completely and problem solved and so yet another praise!

I marvel at how He takes care of things before we even know there was a problem. It is a miracle that Mark agreed to let me take him to the ER because he usually wants to wait out the pain. We are going to WV this week-end for a reunion and had he tried to wait it out we may have ended up in the hospital up there without our own doctor who knew exactly what to do! We are just praising the Lord for His great timing and for taking care of us so completely!

Mark is doing well and now that the drain is out is really feeling good.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support!!!

Love you,

Mark and Lee

Enjoy the words of Chris Tomlin's song "How Great is Our God"

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
Worthy of our praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
