Wasting our lives and glorifying God

Wasting our lives and glorifying God
Notice God's unutterable waste of saints, according to the judgment of the world. God plants His saints in the most useless places. We say - God intends me to be here because I am so useful. Jesus never estimated His life along the line of the greatest use. God puts His saints where they will glorify Him, and we are no judges at all of where that is. ~Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, August 10

Update on Munkhuush

I arrived in Memphis last night about 6:30ish.  Went straight to the hospital--thanks to a new bloggy friend (isn't the Internet a blessing?!) to be with Dolgor.  Bittersweet indeed.  She's my spiritual daughter and dear friend; only wish I was seeing her under different circumstances.

Munkhuush began occupational therapy yesterday, which wore him out!  He was pretty fussing and tired the rest of the day and would not eat.

By about 8pm he started having a low-grade fever.  His cough is continuing.  Two or three times yesterday he coughed so hard he threw-up, which greatly concerned Dolgor.  But the doctors feel that this vomiting is due to the cough and not due to pressure on his brain.

He had the drainage tube removed from his head yesterday as well.  Now it's just watching and waiting to make sure that the brain deals with the spinal fluid properly so that he will not need a shunt put in.

They also got the report from the lab confirming that the tumor was cancerous.  They are now looking at a year's worth of treatment--chemotherapy and radiation.

For all my prayer warriors who know how to bring heaven to earth:

~Munkhuush has minimal movement on his left side--hands and feet.  He is moving his right arm more, but the first time he moved his left arm was this morning while I was praying for him.  We must have increased movement all around.

~His vision is still minimal.  He responds to light but does not follow objects or appear to see.  The doctors say that as the swelling goes down this should improve.

~This nasty cough needs to GO!

~Rest for Dolgor.  Don't know how anyone gets any good rest in a hospital with people coming in and out at all hours.  Praying that the sleep she does get will be twice as restful!

~Amaa (Munkhuush's daddy) and their daughter will be applying for a visa next week.  Pray for favor.

~Pray and believe for a miracle.  The doctors can give a year's prognosis, but we know the Great Physician who still does the miraculous.

Almighty & eternal God, the everlasting Salvation of them that believe... hear us on behalf of Thy sick servant, Munkhuush, for whom we implore the aid of Thy pitying mercy... that, with his bodily health restored, he may give thanks to Thee as a witness to all in Thy church. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayers & much love coming to that hospital room in Memphis, dear Daja. Please convey that to precious Dolgor also. God be with you all there.

Agreeing with Andrea for this precious child. For the family and all they are about to go through and going through now. Sorry I don't know what to say... though I am so very glad you could be there, even if for only a little while, Daja.

We continue to pray. Give Dolgor and Munkh a hug for me. Hugs to you all.
