Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

March 25: Update on Jonatán

Last Thursday (one week ago), Jonatán had the long-awaited lung scan. (This is the one that was going to be done in February but had not yet been done.) We are praising God for answered prayer! The scan came back normal – with no sign of cancer in the lungs!

Jona went into the hospital last Friday afternoon for the five-day chemo treatment. This is one of the new chemos with stronger medicines that can cause blood counts to go down dramatically. When I called Esteban for an update today, he was at the hospital with Jona who was getting a blood transfusion. Thankfully, it's the first one he has had to have – and only because of the doctor's insisting that it would help him feel better.

Please pray that Jona's blood counts would not drop so far that he has to be in isolation (as he was at the end of January for a few days after this same chemo.) He is apparently feeling quite well today – well enough to attend an evening service at the Bible Conference taking place this week on campus!

Please continue to pray! Esther said that the Lord is giving them many opportunities at the hospital with other families of cancer patients and with the medical staff as well as in the community and at church. Please continue to pray for the Lord's grace and strength for the whole family as they go through this trial.

Thank-you for praying!
