July 9 Update

Dear friends of Kristi and Justin.

Thank you so much, on behalf of the Davis family, for your passionate prayers and support of them in a very difficult time. They are glad to be back in Boise, back home, surrounded by the support of so many friends and family. As many of you know, Kristi very much wanted to be home in Star with Justin and the boys after her Utah hospitalization, and they are excited that it could happen.

Kristi's parents (the Leteys) and her three brothers were also able to travel up yesterday from Salt Lake to spend more time with her and help to be a support for what may happen in the short term. Justin's parents are also glad they are back in town so they can offer support as well.

She was feeling a bit better this morning than the last few days, and had a more restful night last evening. It was a great answer to many prayers. This morning (Mon) was a good time spent with family and Justin, and they were all excited to have that time together.

Medically, the doctors both in Salt Lake and Boise have agreed that hospice and comfort care are the only option at this point, and have set up some systems at their home to make sure she continues to be taken care of. The fragile condition of her heart, and the rapid spread of her tumors have led them all to this decision. She is no longer on any chemo or hormone therapy, and will not be able to participate in the Couer D'Alene trial. Kristi is only on medications to minimize her pain, and keep her comfortable as she spends blessed time with her family and those close to her.

We know that so very many of you care for every member of their family, and would ask that you continue to pray for healing, comfort, peace, and rest for all of them.

They are encouraged and lifted up by the volume of support they are receiving, and appreciate all the texts, notes, and offers of help. Because of Kristi's rapid decline, though, we want to make sure that we can guard their time and their energy as best we can. We are currently setting up a number of systems and point people to continue to offer help and support as they need it, as well as the following blog to keep people updated.

***If you have questions or concerns, or unsure how you might be able to chip in to help, please leave a comment here or contact Melanie or Matt (Melanie 208 861-6165/Matt 208 859-9874) and we will help answer questions or point you toward people who might be working on their behalf***

Thanks again for your continued prayers and support. There is no doubt, they are in good hands.

God is continuing to hold them close, despite the overwhelming circumstances. And they know that they are deeply loved.

Matt and Melanie Romberg
