Sleeping Lions

Katy has fallen into a very deep sleep since late yesterday. When we wake her she asks for food, but we have to rouse her in order for her to feel hunger. She said she is sleeping so deeply she does not feel her pain or hives. How merciful it is to see her sleeping so deeply and be at rest the night before her Remicade treatment. It is a heavenly sleep. Heavenly because she has been sleeping without the aid of pain medication. She believes the Lord has heard her prayer and yours and He is causing her to rest with this deep sleep. She had been taking some very strong pain medication until yesterday afternoon when this heavy blanket of sleep started. So for those of you who have prayed for rest, your prayers are being answered exceeding beyond all we could ask or think! Thank you all for your prayers. This has been such a tough time but it is producing patience and hope.

    I am so thankful that Katy is resting. Next to laughter, it is good for healing not only the body, but the spirit. I do hope that the infusion goes well tomorrow, and that all of our prayers for rest and comfort have come to pass.
    Love always
    Karen Tillman

    Sweet Dreams Katy! We have been praying for deep restful sleep (for you too Dawn!) We are praying tomorrow goes well. We love you.

  3. Gene & Shirley Murphy Says:

    What a blessing that God would give you the pain-free sleep you need before your appointment tomorrow.
    As difficult as your situation is, it never ceases to amaze us how God works in your life and also in the lives of your family. What a blessing you all are to us. We continue in prayer for you.

    In, through, and for Him are all things,
    Gene & Shirley

    All my prayers are with you Katy and your Family always. I am so glad to read you got some sleep and that you are eating. Both two very essential things. I pray that your treatment goes well, and that you can rid yourself of all pain.

    Love and Blessings

    I just finished watching a delightful film, “Miss Potter”, about the life of Beatrix Potter. I think you & Dawn & probably Paul, too, would enjoy it. It made me want to go out & buy up farmland & preserve it for my grandchildren’s grandchildren!
    Continuing to pray for your recovery & for an extended time of stable health.
    In the Lamb,
