He told me he wanted God to use his being at the clinic to meet others and talk to them about God and the hope we have in Him. He believes that if healing doesn't come, that his illness will lead him to speak to others about God.

My family member with the baby in the hospital has witnessed to every nurse and Dr she meets. They had their small town newspaper call and interview them for a story they wrote.

I have 3-year old twins and a nine year old. I couldn't imagine going through what she is going through. And to still have a smile and not be angry or bitter.

Unless a miracle happens, the baby is scheduled for a tracheotomy tomorrow. This means another few months in the hospital and then when they can finally go home, they will have to hire an in-home nurse for at least 18 hours a day, seven days a week. It will require them to find a new home to rent, as their current home is very small.

Also, my friend almost died Sunday. He had a cluster of seizures, during which he stopped breathing and had to be rushed to the hospital. He had another cluster of seizures yesterday, but fortunately didn't need to be hospitalized again. He will be returning to the Mayo Clinic for more tests soon.

Very frustrating. Trying to believe for a miracle, but losing faith. I'm resigned to simply asking for comfort, strength and encouragement rather than healing or a miracle.
