Thursday's Update

After waking up during the night and "losing" the little supper he ate, Daniel was unsure how he'd feel today, but it was his best day yet. He told me to make sure to thank you all so much for your prayers. I assured him that I have been, and he said to tell you all again! :) He still can't eat very much, but so far, as of 9:00 pm our time, he has only felt queasy 1x this afternoon. He's very yellow, but so very handsome :)
He called again for the pathology report and was told it still wasn't there. Finally, they told us that we had not paid for it yet (we did not know this...this was the first time we'd been told). They said that when he comes down for his doctor's appt. tomorrow, that he can pay then and they will go over it with us.
So tomorrow, the plan is for Daniel and I to leave late morning to head back to La Paz. Mr. Diehl is here until Saturday, and he will take care of the boys. The girls will go with a lady from our church and we will take Eliseo. Daniel will get his stitches taken out and have another consultation with the doctor to go over the biopsy and based on the results, discuss his treatment and prognosis.
Today many of the church members came over to visit. Some arrived while Daniel was sleeping, and just visited with the children and I until he woke up. They brought him juices and teas and fruit. It was a blessing to visit with them and see how much they care.
The Lord has been so near this whole week. He truly gives strength, rest, and the grace we need. It's so different to set the table without Daddy's place, so we've eaten outside a lot this week. It's lonely in the evenings, for that is the time that Daniel would walk in the door from preaching/visiting and we'd spend the time visiting together and sipping coffee or tea. But those times are sweet as I open the precious Word and cast all my worries and cares on the One who cares so much.
Again, thank you for praying for us these past couple of weeks. We have truly felt them.

  1. Jaynee, Daniel & Children,
    We are continuing to hold you up in prayer & trusting the Lord for Daniel's healing. Yesterday, as I read Psalm 40, my heart just kept coming back to you. How precious God's Word is in difficult times.

    Heartfelt prayers from all the Scarrys

  2. Sister, I pray for healing and comfort for your husband. I pray for wisdom for you both, and the doctor, as you discuss the biopsy results and what it to be the next course of action.

    ...It is sweet to be able to trust in the Lord and lean on His capable shoulder!

  3. Dear Lockwood family,
    I am praying for you in this uncertain time.
    Because He lives I know you will be able to face tomorrow.
    Grace and Peace,
    Jenny from Texas

  4. It almost looks like that stuff they put in your eyes at the eye doctors office. . . .praying for a quick healthy recovery and that you have some answers SOON!

    God Bless!

  5. Still praying, and anxious for a postive outcome with the biopsy.Your family is on our heart throughout the day, and we pray God will fill the loneliness with his presence, as you continue to lean on him for strength.

    Hugs & Prayers,
    The O'Connors

  6. I have kept Daniel and your whole family in my prayers this week and will continue to do so until I hear otherwise. I will especially pray that the Dr.'s will be able to tell you what is the matter tomorrow and give Daniel a plan of recovery, though we know that only God our healer can heal.

    Love in Christ,
    Suzi Searles

  7. Treat your insides the best you can Daniel, not that I really need to tell you that. I have had Pancreatitis and hospitalized about 40 times when I was working in Chico after I retired from the Air Force. The same as you I could not even hold down water until they started to medicate me, then I was over it very fast.I pray for all of your family and all the wonderful Mexican church members. I am sure they have been a real blessing to Jaynee. I know God is with you Daniel and He knows what He is going to do for you, but He has not let me know yet. :-) To God be the glory, Dean S.

  8. Still praying in Central Illinois.

  9. I "found you" via CF Husb. blog, sometime ago and have been reading AND, this week, have spent TONS OF TIME PRAYING for ya'll--since. Jaynee-you're an inspiration to me....thank you. Thank you for loving your God so faithfully, even in the tough and exhausting times! Your faith is a testimony to all those around you! Joshua 1:9 is going through my head, as I write. Be strong.

    Continued Prayers,
    Jessi in FL

  10. If this is a duplicate, I am sorry.

    Your faith is amazing and quite an inspiration to me. I am going through difficult times but NOTHING compared to what your family is facing. Yet your faith doesn't seem to waver.

    Praying in Michigan.

  11. Still praying! Glad Daniel is home and so many people from church have been visiting! I wish I could do the same!

  12. We are praying for a quick recovery. I never saw anyone with eyes so yellow. I hope all goes well tomorrow.

  13. Hey Jaynee

    Found your blog sometimes ago through Dandelionseeds blog. Just a thought, when babies are born jaundiced they want you to put them in the sunlight as the light helps the body get rid of the bilirubin, think that might help some? I know there is more to his problem, but just thought I would put that out there. Still praying for you guys.

    In Christ,

  14. my thoughts and prayers are with you guys. I pray they figure out what the problem is!

  15. Still praying and awaiting word from the doctor. Your faith and positive attitude have been such an inspiration to me. I need that at this time.

    Denise, in beautiful, sunny, warm Louisville, KY.

  16. Praying for you from California. Peace and love
