Slow and Easy

Andrea received encouragement from her eye specialist on Monday. He said the retinas had unfolded completely now, which means he still wants to go ahead with the first of four operations in September when MDA gives him the okay. He'll take the oil out of the right eye, wait for an 8 week healing process, then remove the cataracts. There'll be another 8 week healing process and do the same on the left eye. Andrea still does not have central vision in her left eye that he does not think she'll recover, but that is where we know great things can happen with the power of your prayers. As many of you know with eye operations, the doctor said 4 operations with a 2 month healing time in between each does seem to draw out the process, but the eyes can't be rushed.
MDA also said Andrea is progressing nicely and she will need to come in on Tuesday and Friday of this coming week for blood draws, fluids and meds. I will give her the fluids at home each day that we are not at MDA.
We have great faith in more healing to come. Thank you for your continued faithful prayers.
Love to all,
Kathy

I have been looking at the many verses where God himself or the writers say, "He is faithful." In keeping up with Andrea's progress, we are reminded over and over that God is faithful in His love, His care, His protection, His promises. What an awesome awareness. We continue to ask Him to bless Andrea with healing and we thank Him for what He is doing through her. We love you all, Gay and Doug

Great news! It was great talking to Andrea last weekend. I'll try to swing by next Tuesday to say hi while y'all are here.

Thank you for the update. Lets consider a day of fasting for the healing of Andrea. In the bible, fasting was used for bringing great concerns to the Lord. Where modern medicine has not yet gone, the Lord has been. His promises are kept if we bring them to him in pray & fasting. AMEN. Chris Pfeiffer
