With Natalie there has been a new development:
Her stomach pain seems to be attributed the slowing down of her intestinal wall movement from her chemo drugs. This slowing down has caused the processing of her food to take longer and have built up gasses (from the drugs too) that are having trouble moving through her bowels. Because of this semi-blockage, her risk of intestinal infection has raised so Natalie is now receiving new antibiotics to shield the possibility of any intestinal infection. The now difficult challenge is that Natalie has been placed on a limited diet. She has to refrain from eating or drinking for up to 2 days. In extreme conditions we can wet a sponge and moisten her lips. This is particularly difficult because the chemo steroids really make her exceedingly hungry. Please pray that this slowing down (blockage) clears quickly and her fasting is limited to a minimum).


This is also a good link from the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It is accurate and informative.


Dom & Dana,
I check this blog all the time to see what's going on and how we can pray. We're thinking and praying for you guys constantly. I'd love to visit/come help but don't know if you are up for that and we're leaving in a few days on vacation. Please know you are being lifted up continually & constantly!
We love you,
The Krafts

Gosh, it seems like one thing after another. I'm praying that God will decide to completely heal Natalie of all these things, and that he will daily show you glimpses of his goodness and faithfulness. We love you and I can't wait to see you Saturday.

Dana and Dom,

We are keeping Natalie in our prayers. Audrey asks about her at Early Start school.

Corey Oiesen (and Audrey)

We will be praying for this too. I wish that there was more that we could do. But I know that we serve a mighty God, and seeing the amazing faith the both of you have in the midst of this is such an incredible gift to me and I'm sure to many others. I hope you are encouraged today. We are thinking of you and precious Natalie and praying always.
