One Step Forward ... Two Steps Back

Today we have good news and bad news regarding Dad's condition. The good news is the spinal tap came back clear, no melanoma in his spinal column. The bad news is he's become increasingly belligerent and still remains confused. So we're left to believe the brain bleed is going to take time and prayer to heal. We are discouraged by the lack of improvement, but grateful the cancer hasn't spread further. He hasn't had any more seizures since taking the anti-seizure med. We fear the anti-anxiety med may cause some agitation, but it needs to be taken regularly. Today's specific prayer request: Please pray for a special visitor Thursday, moments of clarity and a softened and ready heart. As a family, we also have some difficult decisions to make. And pray that my mom can endure the physical and emotional strain.
"...but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14
