The Prayer factor has worked again, Luke is doing better!

Thank you once again for your prayers, Luke is doing much better. He had a great night last night and woke up sounding a whole lot better. He did throw up a few times today, but over all had a great day, considering yesterday was so horrible. Tonight when I put him to bed his oxygen numbers were great and his heart rate was back to normal. I haven't had to put oxygen on him yet, I'm praying he makes it through the night without any.

I remember explaining to one of Luke's Dr.'s that he needed to take into consideration the prayer factor for Luke's speedy recoveries. Most of the Dr.'s and nurses quite often are surprised by his quick turn around. I'm even amazed sometimes by his quick recoveries, I guess I know that God answers prayers, but when He does it so quickly it takes me by surprise at times. I truly believe the scripture in Mark 9:23 Everything is possible to him who believes, once again God said it and I believe it.

Just to let you know that we are getting into a great schedule this year with our homeschooling. The past two years I have been so distracted with Luke's care and appointments I kind of checked out of the homeschooling arena. I'm so thankful to my sister Cindy and my mom, who taught the girls grammar, for picking up the ball with the kids in their schooling during that time. Now Cindy has volunteered to come over every morning to help with Luke, so that I can take over the schooling again. Even though I've been teaching the kids for 11 years, this is the first time I've taught kindergarten, since all my older children went to a Christian school for a short time, I'm really enjoying it.

I know I've said this many times before, but I would like to remind you that if you have any prayer requests, I want to pray for them. I feel selfish asking for the prayers all the time, the Bible says to share one anothers burdens and that is what I would like to do, if you'll let me. You can share them in the comments or e-mail me if you want to, I'll get them either way.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy, along with Daniel, Amy, Natalie, Isaiah, Ezekiel and Lily's Mommy, Sue

I'm glad God is healing Luck quickly. I would like to request a prayer please. The schools are trying to say my son is ADHD, which I do not believe. Please pray that we can find out what is causeing my son's hyperness. I think it's sleep apnea. My son has enough medical issues and I don't want anymore. I just pray that he gets healed of all his allegeries and astham and this hyper stuff. I know God has this power. Thank you.

I'm so happy to hear the good news about Luke! The prayer factor is so much more powerful than any medicine or treatment! I praise God with you and pray for continued good health in your family.

Hi Sue!
What great news. I bet your getting tired of this roller coaster you and your family is on. Luke's smile was called proof in the puddingthat he is doing great!
I check J.R.'s blog every single day and there has been no new posts. Not since July. I was wondering if you know how the little guy is doing?
