I am at Allen & Gillian's house, so I thought I would upload these images of Joseph from their computer.
Allen came back to the house to rest tonight. Please pray that he can get some MUCH needed sleep. My Mom and I are staying here with him while Gillian is at the PICU with Lynn in Joseph's room. Please pray that Joseph can sleep tonight and will not be in pain.
My heart is heavy as I have to leave tomorrow and drive back to Memphis. I do not want to leave. However, I must return home. The plan is to keep at least one family member here with them and I suppose the family will just alternate who is here. I know my Mom is going to stay a few more days and possibly through the week. I myself plan to be back here as early as Thursday or Friday. Gill's Dad arrived today, coming as far away as Ireland to be with them.
Gillian told me earlier tonight how truly grateful she is for all of your prayers. Your comments are SO encouraging as well, not just for she and Allen to read, but also for the rest of the family. Lynn and I were sitting at two computers earlier this afternoon, each of us looking at the most recent comments and exclaiming with excitement over the comments, especially the ones from people we had not seen in ages. Knowing that prayers for Joseph are being lifted up across the globe is an amazing thing. Please continue in your fervent prayers.
Please continue to pray that God will intercede on Joseph's behalf and cure him of this tumor. Please pray for Holly, while she is with her Nana away from her parents, that she will have peace and joy.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your love and support of this precious family. Even those of you who have only become acquainted with them through finding this blog - you are loving them by praying.
Also, thank you to the group of people here in Atlanta from Allen & Gill's church who came & cleaned and did yardwork. What a wonderful gift.
