Kerry sent me a text message this morning saying that as soon as a bed becomes available at Duke Medical Center, she's going to be on her way! I think they're even going to send her by helicopter! YAY!
Her dad will be meeting her there and staying with her until Ben can get his job transferred.
Here are specific prayer requests:
- a bed to open up TODAY for Kerry
- travel mercies for Kerry and her dad
- smooth transition to the facilities at Duke
- compassionate, skilled doctors
- quick, smooth job transfer for Ben
And most of all, Ben is - understandably - quite overwhelmed right now. Please keep him especially in your prayers today.
"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner
