Jeremy's Dad

The past couple of days have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for Jeremy's dad and his family. A couple of days ago, Ron had a great day - he was able to eat some, carry on conversations, and was interacting with the boys a lot. I've heard that there is a calm before the storm, and I think that was it. Since then, he's been having a lot of breathing problems and has been in and out (but mostly out) of consciousness. It seems (and medical professionals have also said this) that his time is running short. The family is rallying around Ron and Karen, spending time with them and watching over Ron when Karen needs breaks. Thankfully, my parents are in town and are able to watch the boys so I can be at Ron and Karen's house with Jeremy.
Please keep Jeremy and his family in your prayers tonight and tomorrow. I know this is going to be the beginning of a few rough weeks. Please pray that Ron is comfortable and pain-free. Please pray for peace for everyone, for understanding, for comfort, for Jesus' arms to be wrapped around them.
Thank you. Melissa
