Update on Jack

From last night:
Mark just talked to Jay. Jack's breathing is becoming more shallow, and he is stopping sometimes briefly.
I'm assuming this means he's digressing, but he has surprised us before, so we'll have to wait and pray.

I was remembering that when Mark's mother was dying of cancer, they told us she had several months left and she died two days later. With Jack, they told us several days and it has been more than two weeks. No wonder doctors don't like speculating in these circumstances. God always has His own timeframe.
Thank you all so much for your love and prayers for Jack.

Thanks for the update. Jack and family continue to be in my prayers.

Yeah, who can tell? The pastor of my church has cancer, and was given six months to live, 12 years ago. A co-worker of mine with heart disease went in for tests to see if he needed more surgery--and dropped dead on the treadmill test.

But breathing actually stopping at times--well, that's close to the edge, though of course it's in God's hands, as you say.

God bless you and keep you all.

We've been remembering Jack in our family prayers at night with our children. My son (3 yrs.) has grown quite attached to Jack. Last night he told me, "But I don't want him to go to heaven yet. I want him to be here with us on earth!" Bubba seems rather sad about Jack's situation. He's just now starting to grasp the concept of death.

Still hoping for a miracle, yet praying that God's will be done.
