Happy 9th Birthday, Jack!

When I first posted this, I was forgetting that it was an update from last night. Hence, today is Jack's ninth birthday. He made it!
Today, Jack is back to sleeping all the time. He doesn't completely wake up and he hasn't spoken, but they do feel that yesterday was a gift. Tomorrow is his 9th birthday.....they didn't expect him to live until that day. We will probably go over in the evening for a visit. John drew him a picture yesterday. It's Jesus with His arms stretched out wide in welcome....
Jack shares a birthday with Mary -- may her gracious intercession comfort his family.
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!
