Update on Jack

Barb writes:
I just wanted to update you on Jack....unfortunately, he had to go back into the hospital last Wednesday because his blood counts were so low and he was running a fever. They put him on antibiotics and he was doing better. Now he has developed a secondary infection...they had expected him to get mouth sores, but instead he has gotten terrible sores on and in his bottom...they are very painful. He will be having a CT scan done to determine the extent of the infection. They have him on morphine and another antibiotic and told us he will probably be in the hospital all week. Very depressing for him and his parents...
We really do appreciate all your prayers...
Please keep praying for this little boy and his family. We've been asking for the intercession of the parents of St. Therese, Louis and Zelie Martin.

Venerable Louis and Zelie Martin, Servants of God,
You offered many prayers for your own sick children.
We unite our prayers with yours for Jack's healing.
May God look favorably on your intercession and, in His Mercy, grant us our request.
May His will be done in all things.

Venerable Louis and Zelie, pray for us!

We really can't stop praying for this little boy. We know God likes us to be persistent.
We can all just bug God until he gives in.

Still praying. I can't imagine having to endure this either as the child or the parents.
