Okay, for those who have been praying, God has answered! I'm a little foggy on the details, but Marissa had gone to the doctors and he was the one who advised her to return to the hospital. But she only stayed there for a couple of days and went home on Thanksgiving. And she was able to come to church this morning! So that is a HUGE praise.
As for Jo- I saw her this morning and she updated us herself. She did have her nose cauterized and was given some iron pills to take. She looked bright and beautiful as usual.
Hopefully things will return to normal for this family.
