Here we go again...

Here we go again.  Jude is back at MUSC and the Morrison clan is being stretched again. The stay was expected to be overnight, but is now indefinite. Their house has not sold, so the financial burden is beginning to catch up with them too.

In addition, Brian will soon be starting school and work in Florence and will have to leave Rose on her own with Jude.  So if any of you would like to show love through action here are a some thoughts:

1) It will be difficult for Rose to leave, so if you would be willing to run errands or pick up items that they did not think to bring with them please contact Rose.

2) Once again Brian will be traveling back and forth, so gift cards for gas would help with this expense.

3) As before gift cards for food while Jude is in the hospital would be a blessing.

4) Meals for Rose while at the hospital

5) Encouragement in the form of cards or emails just to let them know that the prayers are still there.  It would truly mean so much to know that the prayer is still continuing - it has been such a long journey!

Also please take note that their mailing address has changed:

2900 Old Muldrows Mill Road
Florence, SC 29501

Transportation Troubles

We don't really know what to ask, but just have to let you know that Brian's 1998 Toyota Tacoma is seriously on its last leg.  It has gotten to the point that it would cost more to fix it than the truck is worth.
Please pray for their transportation situation while they are in Charleston and/or help as the Lord leads.

Needs And More

Hello again friends.  It has been a long road for the Morrison's and this journey continues to stretch.  Jude is scheduled for his second repair surgery on Monday so first and for most we covet your prayers for the next few days - for the surgeons, their staff, for Jude to stay strong and healthy, for Annabelle to have fun with her cousins ; and also for Rose and Brian to rest well and trust in the God who loves them.

Meanwhile there have been other changes in the Morrison household.  Brian has taken an extended leave in order to spend time with his little boy and support his family.  This leave is unpaid which means that the financial burden is becoming greater.  We wanted to update the list again the ways that you can support The Morrison's physically if you so choose:

Gift cards for gas
Gift cards for household expenses
Grocery store gift cards
Restaraunt gift cards
Breast milk bags for freezing and storage

Thank you friends!

Also remember their new address is:
1442 Heather Drive
Mount Pleasant, SC

Important Address Change!

Just wanted to  make sure that you all know that The Morrison's have moved to:

1442 Heather Drive
Mount Pleasant, SC

A Few Little Specifics

Several of you have asked if there are any specific items that would be helpful for the Morrison's to have while they care for Jude.
There are just a few things that seem to be used regularly:
Paper plates or any paper goods
Lansinoh Breast Milk Storage Bags
Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer ( Because sanitization is so constant this helps to keep hands from drying and cracking)

Any of these would be best sent to the Mount Pleasant address:
1469 Barbara Street
Mount Pleasant, SC
