Praying for peace

Mike's battle with cancer is coming to an end. He took a turn for the worse yesterday, struggling to breathe, and was moved to the ICU overnight. He has been asleep for the past 24 hours and is being kept comfortable with morphine. There's little else the doctors can do for him.

A few times this morning, he smiled at me.

Please pray for his comfort and peace.

Carrie,

We'll be joining you in prayer. Please let us know if there's anything at all you need. Mike is the absolute BEST — friend, writer, guy, you name it.

Thinking about you guys.

You've got my prayers, and I am thinking about you -- two of my favorite people, and your beautiful child -- constantly...
