Update

Hi!  Just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that Glenn is back in the hospital.  Last weekend was a nightmare as far as the pain was concerned, so on Tuesday, the doctor decided the best thing would be to change Glenn's medication from the pain pump to Methadone and oral drug.  He told us, though, that it is very difficult  to figure out the proper dosage with Methadone, so he wanted Glenn in the hospital for the switch over.  Thursday night was the worst night of pain for Glenn yet, so when the doctor came to see him in the morning he told Glenn he was going to increase the dosage, but he would be very sleepy.  By that time, Glenn was about ready for anything and he agreed so for the last 2 days Glenn has been sleeping most of the time.  Yesterday Glenn woke up with a fever and his hemoglobin was down to 69, so blood cultures and other tests were done to see if he has an infection of some kind and he was given another 2 bags of blood last night.  When I saw him last night he had better color and was more alert so the extra blood seems to have helped him a bit. 

Please pray for peace for Glenn.  He is quite discouraged by this latest turn of events.  I will try to keep you informed.

Oh, precious Lord. I pray for Glenn. I pray He would sense Your presence at all times, but especially in the midst of His pain. I pray You'd give his doctor wisdom in choosing the right medication for Him. And I ask You to be with Denita, as well. Give them both the peace that passes understanding. I pray that Your psalms would bring them comfort, Father God. And Joel, Rebecca, and David, that they also would have Your peace. Thank You, Sweet Jesus. Hallelujah.

Pain can really drag you down. I pray that they will be able to find the right mix of drugs to give him relief and that the Great Physician will give him peace. Eunice
