James Update 6/25

Well, the Docs decided to admit James into the hospital. We are not sure how long we will be here. James' vomiting has gotten much worse even since this morning. He is now throwing up around 5-10 times an hour. The Docs are pretty convinced that his issue involves more than just reflux. They will be doing trial and error stuff with him to figure out why he is reacting so drastically. For now they are putting him on medicine to help with nausea. There just seems to be no good external reason for why James is reacting the way he is.

Continue to pray for healing for James, sleep for Kristal, and help for me and my studies.

I will update again once we know what is going on.

Romans 5:3-5: "Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."

I used to wrestle when I was in highschool (I hated it by the way). I always knew when my dad came to watch because whenever I was in a position to score against my opponent I could hear him yelling to me from the edge of the wrestling mat , "USE IT JIM!! USE IT!" I can hear the Lord in the midst of this trial yelling, "USE IT JIMMY!! USE IT!" Pray for Kristal and I as we actively seek to let the Lord do his work on us. Pray that this trial not go to waste. Pray that we proactively "use it" for the good. Pray that the Lord use it to conform us into the image of his Son.
