“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not use liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.”Author of Galatians
Everyday is challenging, but is also an opportunity; it depends which way you want to take it. It may be hard to see the opportunities when facing hard times. Some times we need a different perspective or re-alignment.
In last update we talked about waiting. The circumstances have not changed much. We are still waiting for John Lee’s swelling to fall to an acceptable amount so that his chest can be closed. His organs continue to perform well, therefore the doctors are happy with the progress. They told us that each case is different, but it typically takes 7 to 10 days for the closure. Each child reacts differently the surgery as such the child’s healing is what determines how fast the closure would be.
Meanwhile we have gotten to know some of the families here at the Ronald McDonald house. Each family is here because of a sick child. One family’s child in particular had the same procedure as John Lee, but has since had other complications. We sharing hope and encouraging one another while we face each day. Please keep the families and the children in your prayers. There are opportunities to reach out to other families while we are here.

I continue to pray for you while being challenged personally by the way you are handling this situation. May God continue to strengthen you both as we all trust Him for John Lee’s recovery.
Sometimes it’s very hard for us far away especially with the time difference to keep asking on progress however the blog is what we look forward to everyday as a means of being in touch and close up without the feel of disturbing. So use that little spare time to write, every time we read the thoughts and prayers extend further. #onelove #onehope
