Day 1 - Much discomfort

"Very uncomfortable today. Miserable. Hiccups and terrible feeling all over body. Just vomited. Given lasix to expel water. Pray for peace and strength to endure." reads David's sms at 8:40pm today.

After the BMT (Bone Marrow Transplant), David has been given lots of medicine to prevent GVHD (Graft Vs Host Disease) and to curb possible side effects of chemo and radiotherapy. He has not been eating well even before the BMT. Please pray that his body be filled with supernatural strength from the Lord. Ask the Lord to deliver him from all discomfort and pain and to bring about miraculous healing.

"Lord Jesus, please strengthen David with all might, according to Your glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to You who have qualified him to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light (Colossians 1:11-12).
Thank You Lord for Your grace is sufficient for us, for Your strength is made perfect in weakness(12 Corinthians 12:9), in Jesus name we pray. Amen!"

Pray also for Joshua who has a little cough and running nose and so for the first time since his daddy was hospitalised, did not visit him. Josh missed his daddy. Pray that he could get well soon so he could be with daddy again.

God bless,
