I keep thinking we will hear from insurance and I can send out a full report. But every day an ambulance is ordered and even rescheduled multiple times only to never hear from the insurance and eventually be canceled. Our poor case manager and my dad have spent countless hours working to find an answer but here we are still waiting a week after our appeal was sent. However, we trust that the Lord is in even this frustrating delay and are grateful to be receiving good care while we wait. The stress of such a big move and the unknown has been hard on Mom but she continues to trust the Lord in this area as well.
We have had some small reprieves from nausea but it continues to be our main battle and prayer request. We have been trying different things and decreasing some meds that may have nausea as a side effect. Would you pray for protection for her as we seek to find the right balance of blood pressure, anti-seizure, pain and nausea meds and for wisdom for the doctors and nurses as they care for her. Pray for no physical set backs of any kind! It’s amazing the progress she makes in therapy when she is not feeling miserable. We would love for the Lord to have mercy and grant her some real relief!
KY is preparing to be hit by a fairly major winter storm. Would you pray that we would not have to move in the midst of it? Would you pray for safety and wisdom as we drive back and forth?
A verse that has been ministering to us is 2 Tim. 4:17: “The Lord stood by my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed…” Just like the Lord did for Paul in his final days in a prison cell, Jesus stands at Mom’s side even when she can’t stand on her own and He alone gives her the strength to do the impossible each and every day. And He does this not so that anyone thinks more highly of her but so that through her the Gospel can be fully proclaimed. The message of the cross and the power of God is maybe best proclaimed from a prison cell or a hospital bed.
Thank you for your continued prayers for us on this long journey.
