A small request

Baby Boy with MIL and S-FIL

I'm not doing a wordless wednesday post today (could you tell?!) instead I wanted to ask you all a favour.

When I met 'Daddy' many years ago, one of the first things that I learnt about the woman who would become my Mother-in-law was she was getting married for the second time. Her soon to be husband seemed to be a lovely man and it turned out that we actually had a couple of distant friends in common.

Over the next few years as I got to know him I discovered that not only is he incredibly intelligent, has a great talent for painting, a very dry sense of humour and a huge love for my little family but that he has the most wonderful faith. It was this faith that got him through a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, and he has suffered through treatments and blood transfusions with a brave face.

He has been in hospital for several weeks now and today he had an MRI scan which identified several lumps in his neck and face. At the moment the biopsies of these haven't come back and so all we can do is hope and pray.

And this leads me to the favour I would like to ask. Can you please add him and his wife to your prayers? He is currently in Intensive Care and is very weak and I know that they would appreciate it. I know that I would appreciate it.

Thank you
