Health Update

Another update on the condition of my ulcers/health. Thank you so much for your prayers through this time. God has been so good to us!

Dear Friends and Family,

Today we went for another doctor's appointment to clean the ulcers on Esther's legs and check on their improvement. They all are healing very well, and as of today the doctor told Esther to begin to lower her dosage of prednisone a little bit. Please pray that healing will continue just as before and not decrease because of the lower dosage of steroids. Although there have been minimal side effects from the steroids, we are thankful that Esther has been getting plenty of sleep whether it be at night or nap time and that she has been able to keep from getting any secondary infections. She is in good spirits and looks forward to getting back to full strength. The pain from the ulcers is minimal to none now which is a big change from a few weeks ago! Thank you for your words of encouragement and continued prayers for our family. The LORD has been so good to us through all of this, and we just can't thank Him enough! I Thessalonians 5:24 "Brethren, pray for us." We have without doubt felt upheld by the prayers of so many of you around the world! Thank you for giving of your time to pray!

With Grateful Hearts,
Jeremy and Esther Lockhart
