Hi everybody! I created this blog so that you all could cheer Rory on throughout his battle with DSRCT. I know all of you care so much about Rory and want to be updated on everything going on and so I thought a blog would be the best way to do it! Thank you for all your love and support.

Day 5 & 6

So I know I said I would update daily, but some days not much happens and I get tired.  Please forgive me.

The past two days not a whole lot has happened.  Rory is getting much stronger each day.  Yesterday he did some little walks and today he did some big walks.  He did 20 laps around the floor and this finally got his bowels moving (he'll probably hate me for sharing that).  When is bowels are moving more frequently he will be able to get the tube out of his nose which is bothering his throat like crazy.  So he's taking steps in the right direction, literally.  Other than that, there's not much to report.  I'm learning my way around the city and I can't wait for Rory to get out of the hospital so we can start enjoying it together.

I know it's easier to ask God for things than it is to thank Him.  At least it is for me.  I often forget to thank Him for just the everyday things and this is something I work on daily.  So I ask that you all not only pray and ask God for Rory's complete healing, but I also ask that you make it a point to thank Him for everything He has already done for Rory.

  1. Kristen, thank you for your update. Happy, things are going better and better...I like the verse you posted today...it's easy to love and thank God when things go well in our lives...we are real servants if we can still love him going through hard times...

  2. Kristen, I cry every time I read a post! I love to hear the progress that Rory is making and to see God throwing this mountain into the sea! It's so easy to overlook the little things, but the fact that Rory was able to walk 20 laps around the nurse's station so soon is definitely something huge, and an amazing reason to that God! Sometimes we forget God in the small stuff! Rory will now forever have a reminder (his scar) of just how big God really is, and that he is faithful to keep his promises!

  3. Kristen ~ I thank God every time I have a nice BM, so I'm happy to thank Him for Rory's too. . . : ) Remember to laugh ~ it releases the tension! And yes, we thank God for ALL His many blessings in all our lives.

  4. Kristin, you're doing a great job! Thanks for keeping us all updated and sharing the good news. Don't apologize for getting tired. You're one strong woman and I will continue to pray that you find new strength everyday and that you're reminded of how much you're loved by God, just as Rory is! Praying for continued good news from Rory!

  5. Thanking God for you and Rory and everything He is doing through you daily!! Love you! Make sure you are getting rest too! :)
