Israel and Cori have had a challenging last 24 hours. Israel was in extreme pain last night even after his blood transfusion. All night long he battled. Finally, at about 11:30 this morning a nurse from the pain control center came and gave a huge dose of pain-killer. Israel’s pain immediately subsided. He has continued to be a little better with pain during the day today but they are still concerned about his very high blood pressure. He was transferred to a new room where there is a cardiology monitoring system to monitor his high heart rate. Tonight he is very worn out after getting very little sleep all night. We can continue to pray for them.
Cori shares that Israel continues to turn to the Lord for help in his suffering and often includes his thanks to God for sparing his life. Cori says a big AMEN to that!
They passed their time today reading your encouraging emails and notes. It helped passed the time for them.
Here a closing thought for this post. It is from the book of Job, a man who suffered many things which God allowed in his life. Job 2:9, 10 -“Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What ? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.”
