Day +47

Our ninth week here in Rm # 3206 started with new plans to try to treat old maladies.  Elena's doctors have decided to try a steroid to help eliminate her fevers and nausea.  Over the past several days Elena's fevers have occurred less often and have not spiked as high and the doctors feel that the steroid will help reduce them further.  We are praying that this will be the breakthrough needed to take care of them for good!

Elena has had a better afternoon after a rough start this morning.  She has had periods of time where she didn't feel as bad as she has been feeling and that makes for a better day.  It does the heart good to see her feeling a little better and to catch a glimpse of her beautiful smile again.  It has been gone for too long and we miss it!  What a joy it will be to rejoice with her when God finishes her healing! 

For now we will continue to praise Him for all he has done and continues to do in our lives!  We will continue praying, and we will continue believing!

In Him,
The Tates

"He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."  Psalm 46:10
