I just wanted to stop in and post that Phoebe is doing okay. It has been a busy couple of weeks and I am wanting to post something more heartfelt about my grandfather, but time hasn’t allowed yet.
Phoebe is a little emotional and having stomach pain right now, most likely from one of her chemo medicines called Doxorubicen. She was up most of the night with pain and when I got up at 6:30 this morning, Nathan had her in the bathtub trying to soothe her. After a round of intrathecal (spinal) chemo and Doxorubicen, it is usually just a matter of days before Phoebe needs a blood transfusion and/or platelets. It just knocks her out.
Friday is Deacon’s birthday and I am praying that we are not in the hospital with her getting a transfusion. Thank you all for praying with us!
Father, we just lift up Phoebe to you and the entire Fair household. We ask that you would bless Phoebe with a good day on Friday so that Deacon can have a wonderful birthday, that his life can be celebrated with fun and pizazz and for the entire family to get much needed rest and relaxation. Lord, we know that you are the strength giver and I’m sure Nathan and Amey so often feel fatigue and weariness in soul and body. I pray for your Spirit’s power to uphold them and use them in the midst of this difficult time. I pray that you would enable them to minister and miraculously meet the needs of all of their children and that you would minister to them. Thank you Lord that you are their care giver, love of soul and body and you cherish them, your precious children. Thank you Lord that your plan is for good and you will use these times for good even when we can’t see how. We continue to ask for healing for sweet Phoebe. We believe your love covers her and you love her and have a plan for her. Thank you for her life and all that she represents to the world. Thank you for her beauty! In Jesus Name.
Love you guys!
