If you read this before church

In my last post I shared that I am receiving IV antibiotics. Usually the antibiotic kicks in within 48 hours and the symptoms subside. Well, it’s been over 48 hours and I still have a high fever. I get it about every 12 hours. I spoke with the nurse tonight and she said usually around three days at the most is when I should see improvement. Today is the third and I just received my second dose for the day.

I am asking that if you get this before your church service, that you will lift me up in prayer at your church, during Sunday school, or just by simply telling others. I believe in the power of prayer, especially the power of corporate prayer. I am trying very hard not to be fearful, but sometimes my thoughts get the best of me. I know God is with me, that He knows my situation better than anyone. Thank you for praying.
