A Message From Jerad


Thanks for praying for me.
I am feeling better since surgery.
Before I went to surgery my Mom sang to me my favourite hymn, "Jesus Loves Me This I Know." Then my Daddy went with me to the pre-op area.

I am smiling more and starting to chew on things.
I chewed the IV tubing apart and Mom and the nurses weren't so happy about that. They wrapped my arm in a towel so I can't get to the IV now.

in a towel.

I don't like to move my left hand. The doctor wants me to start physical therapy again so I will on Friday.
The doctor said I might be able to go home tomorrow! YEAH!

I have asthma so here I am getting a breathing treatment.

Keep praying for me and my family. The nurses all tell me I'm "lucky" to have the parents I do. I don't know about the luck thing, I just know that Jesus loves me and I thank God for blessing me the way He has.

Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Jerard's Surgery 7-5-2010

Jerard had surgery today at 1p for installation of a shunt in his right ventricle. He came through the surgery fine. Kurt went to be with him in the post-op around 4 and they came to the room around 6p.
He is resting well now.
Thanks for praying for him.

Beth's Health Report

We received the biopsy slide report from St. Luke's Hospital in Manila.
Two doctors up there reviewed the slides and concurred there was no malignancy! Praise God!
I will just need to have another mammogram in October.

Fun Kid Photos

My kids bless my life so much. Just wanted to share a couple fun photos!

James goes to sleep and nap time with his two Tiggers and his
one Curious George. It's very cute how he says, "Tigger me" if he
crawls into bed without his buddies!

way home from a family outing!

Psalm 34: 11 Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
