Radiation 10 of 30 went great. We were the first ones in for treatment this morning which put us on the road earlier than usual. We made it home by lunch – in time to get Cole to Dr. P! I love the way the Lord takes care of everything. I also love our pediatrician and his staff who stayed late for us. Thank you Jesus all around, for every detail!
Kayleigh is thrilled to be home. She is enjoying Bess & Grandaddy time this afternoon and our precious Nat is coming to stay with all the kids so Tim and I can slip away for dinner just the two of us. Thank you so much for all of your prayers, Kayleigh is still symptom free and feeling really good. Keep on covering our sweet girl with your prayers – they are working!
As for Cole, we don’t have a diagnosis yet. Dr. P has some ideas, none of them terribly serious (thank you Jesus some more!!) but we need to do further testing. The plan right now is to have an ultrasound of the lump next week and make a plan from there. Please pray specifically that the doctors are able to determine what the mass is with the ultra sound, that it is not anything serious, and that it will be something straightforward and simple to take care of.
So many times we her people say “God won’t give you more than you can handle”. I’ve got one word for that, it’s one my great grandmother liked to use – PIFFLE. Piffle, piffle, piffle! I’m going to tell you right now, all of this is more than Tim & I could handle on our own. If we didn’t have our faith in Jesus and our complete certainty in God’s sovereignty, we would be floundering. So I’m going to alter that statement – God won’t give you more than you can handle IF you are trusting Him to carry the load NOT trying to fix things yourself. I’m a fixer – that’s a tough lesson – but I am learning and I’m seeing God do amazing things when I let go of the reins.
Learning to trust God in every detail is one of the many blessings we have received on this journey. I know God still has so much in store for us and amazingly, we are looking forward to it. So, thank you Jesus for another good day. Thank you friends for holding us up with your prayers – they matter!
“For the word of God will never fail.”
