Today has been a challenge for Israel and Cori. Israel is struggling to cope with the pain. His heart rate has been very high all day and the only reason the doctors can determine why is due to his high level of pain. The picture is of them hooking him up for a blood transfusion . They felt that it would help his oxygen level and help his heart rate. They are praying that he does not have a clot in his lung or any infection. They still are looking to the Lord and Israel is hanging in there. Cori says” that God is gently caring for them”.
One thing we failed to make clear in our last reports is that Israel’s amputation surgery yesterday was on both legs and was done above the knees due to the lack of tissue and muscle on the bone from the impact of the accident.
You can pray for Cori too that she can get some sleep as she was up all night with Israel. She is very worn physically and emotionally.
A thought for today comes from Romans 8: 35, 37 _ ” Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress”…. “Nay , in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” ( KJV)
