Tammy Says

Well they have added some more meds to Jack's menu. Some to sooth his tummy, some more to help him with the pain...He just had an xray to see where the feeding tube is in his stomach, they will move it around to bypass his stomach and go straight down the next area, maybe he can get some nutrition that way. He will have another xray after they move the tube, to check it has gone to the correct spot. A nurse, or attending, or fellow, or practitioner... told me the other day that although the text book recovery is about 3-4 days till they feel better, she has never seen it work that way. She said the kids either bounce back right away, or it takes about 7-10 days. I think we are on the slow route. Although the route is slow, the docs are not worried about his progress. We are looking forward to seeing DJ and Sophie and some more family today.Thank you for your prayers and keep lifting my sweet Jack up to our Father in heaven. I know that each time he hears a prayer for Jack he shoots more power his way. Thanks again.Love to you all.

Still praying for the Marcelains while I work.

Jack, you have impacted so many lives through the journey you are taking right now. You have encouraged and prompted people to let their lights shine. I have been humming your song all morning: "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine . . . " Funny thing is that my eyes keep watering.

Jack, you are so brave. I will have more to say about that tonight

You are very special boy and God will heal you completely.

Love and blessings,

Pat White

Marcelains,
You are all so precious. We are, have been, and will continue to keep you all in our prayers. Our sweet college students in the mail room at ACU keep asking for updates on Jack and I know that they have been praying for him too. We love you and pray that you continue to be strong. We look forward to seeing Jack skipping through the church again with DJ and Sophie close by. Keep singing.
Love, the Perry's

There are no official "prayer warriors" at Abilene Christian University yet, but since I talked to Tammy a few days ago I have deemed myself the general and enlisted many of my friends to be warriors for Jack. We pray continually and hope always. I will play the role of "fearless leader" because I know that when you have God on your side, you ALWAYS WIN THE BATTLE.

Keep fighting, Marcelain family! We're fighting for you in prayer.

Ninety Five Percent

Dr. Price, Jack's neurosurgeon just called and talked with me. She was checking on Jack and also giving me the full low down on the mri.
PRAISE GOD
The mri showed that Dr. Price removed over 95% of the tumor. Not the original 85-90% she thought. I love Dr. Price for her kindness and gentle nature because it is so comforting, I love the news she gave me, I love her skilled hands that she has blessed us with, and I love God for giving her a gift of such an awesome nature.
Just wanted to share some great news.
