David Burge Updates

David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

Phone Call

with 7 comments

The consultant rang at 7:30pm last night (Friday), not something he usually does. He asked me about Dave’s quality of life. I told him apart from those couple of days with the infection where Dave was coughing all night and blacking out etc that it has been good. He reiterated that it is getting increasing difficult to keep Dave stable.  His instructions were that Dave was to  start the chemotherapy tablets again that night. He will probably need to see Dave early next week.

Later that evening Dave had a terrible headache (probably a side effect of high blasts) and took some morphine for this. He managed to sleep all night but is not particularly well today. But his head is feeling better and he is able still to write 🙂

  1. Remembering you in prayer and thinking of you all. Wanted to say also that I have been watching the boys at waterpolo and they are getting really good. Some good skills!!!! They are having lots of fun playing in the pool with friends too.

  2. God be with you, in you, behind and before you. May he comfort, encourage, strengthen, stabilize and, in his mercy heal.

    May you be filled with his peace, cheered by his Presence and upheld by his power.

    Love in Jesus to one and all.

  3. Often thinking of you all and your journey. Always amazed at how you still serve wider communities with such heart … the true colours of a Christian walk.

    Please ensure you take and make your time together all that it can be whilst Dave walks here. The rest can wait.

    With love, peace and the most tremendous admiration.

  4. Dear Tarnya & David,
    May you both be ever so aware of the lord’s presence during these trials.
    It’s encouraging knowing such a lot of the faithful are praying for you as a family right now. We do continue to persevere in prayer.

  6. Redemption Songs 797. A great hymn of Faith & zeal.

    I’m pressing on the upward way,
    New heights I’m gaining everyday,
    Still praying as I onward bound,
    “Lord plant my feet on higher ground”

    Lord lift me up and let me stand,
    By Faith, on heavens table land,
    A higher plane than I have found,
    Lord plant my feet on higher ground.

    All the family are in my thoughts as you go on this upward and onward journey “In Christ” Love Juliette
