Please Pray for God's Grace for the Dye Family

Here is an update on my dear friend, Cherie Dye.  Her husband is a pastor in Battle Creek, Michigan.  They have a daughter that is married and has a child.  Two more daughters are in college and they have a son that is still in high school.  Please pray for Grace as Cherie takes her final journey.  Pray for rest, it is sometimes very difficult to sleep like you should when going through a trial like this.  Pray that the Love of the Lord would surround them.

These updates are from someone in their church:

Update from earlier this week:  She had three seizures last week apparently from the brain tumors. Last night she was taken to the emergency room with severe jaundice and a racing heart. She was released at 3:30 a.m. this morning and is back home. She can have no more chemo, because we nearly lost her three weeks ago after the first one. Her white blood count dropped extremely low, she had several mini strokes, her body filled with infection, and her kidneys began shutting down. In answer to prayer, the Lord turned the kidney failure around, but part of a kidney was permanently damaged. She was hospitalized briefly after the first seizure. The family has been urged to get a hospice involved, because they can provide so much more help than the visiting nurse can.

Update from this morning: Pastor Dye has had to make the hard decision to bring hospice in for her. We all knew it was coming, but still it is discouraging. She is pretty much bed ridden at this point. Family and church family are going to start helping some with her care. Pastor Dye's sister Colleen will be here tomorrow to stay for a few days. Please pray that we all can and will be a blessing. Thank you for your continued prayers.
