    I will be stepping up the prayers. I am glad you updated since in my experience with my son’s liver disease the prayers were a great, great comfort and help.

    Oh no. I am praying for stamina and wisdom for you and for recovery for your husband.

    Hang in there. This will develop further perseverance and wisdom for you and your family as you walk by faith.
