Janis called and told me that they would begin dialysis on Emily tonight at 6:30. It will probably last about 4 hours. Please be praying that it will take the stress off of Emily's body and give her kidneys the resolve to begin functioning on their own.
Emily's cousin, David, had the idea of setting up an online account to give to Luke & Emily to help meet their needs during this time. To your right you will see a "Donate" button. If you feel led to give to them, every dime will go directly to Luke & Emily to help with all their financial needs through this difficult experience. I thought it was a great idea and so proud of David for thinking of a way to help them. It's very easy to use---and I know it will ease that pressure Luke must feel.
If we have to wait, it's so nice waiting with you. I know Emily is going to be so blessed....so blown away by this outpouring of love on her behalf. In fact, it will just embarress her! She's not used to being the center of attention. But God uses people like Emily to bring the most glory to Himself, doesn't He? Humble people. People willing to submit to Him and be in the background.
So thank you. Thank you for waiting with us and praying for Emily and her family. We're blessed.
