Update

Thank you so much for your prayers for us! We sensed them. We had several curve balls thrown our way that were stressful but the Lord fought for us and we saw His hand throughout the days. Thank you for lifting us up!

Quick update: The appointment with the neurosurgeon went well and surgery is scheduled for Feb. 29. This will give Mom two more weeks to gain some strength but still not wait too long. We are very thankful to now be under the care of a neurologist. He was very kind and took his time with us and was careful to get all the details, etc. While there are no easy answers or time tables we are thankful to be under his care and thankful to have someone monitoring her progress, etc. I was especially grateful to have a neurologist look over her current medications and make some changes that we felt good about.

Thank you for your prayers for Mom, she had minimal pain and nausea the last two days. Praise the Lord! Both are back today (but still manageable) but we were thankful for the reprieve for these appointments. She did all three therapies and then the appointments both days so needless to say she is exhausted today! She is napping as I type. The realities of our new ‘normal’ are at times overwhelming and I think we are all processing a lot of the information given but thankful to have both appointments behind us. And even more grateful to feel good about both doctors and to have Mom under their care.

Thank you again for your continued prayers!

  4. I frequently wake during the night, you’re always on my mind and heart when I do, whispers of comforting prayers are offered then and throughout the day as well. I used Stan’s heartfelt article on prayer from High Calling at bible study on prayer at Alpha Pregnancy Center, sharing your recent storm. We all prayed for you then as well.

  6. I am continuing to pray and all of you are daily in my thoughts and prayers. It is a blessing that you finally have a neurologist following your mother’s care. I pray for continuing progress in strength and a lessening of pain and nausea. I know what you mean by a “new normal.” You are in the midst of so many transitions. I pray God’s grace and mercy for each of you during this time.

  9. I have a big circle around February 29 with Katy written in the middle. Each day I lift my dear Katy in prayer, but on that day of all days, I will be asking our Father to go with her and gently hold her, I will be asking Jesus, the one who spent was seems the majority of his ministry healing, to guide and direct the surgeons hands and bring healing to Katy’s body and I will ask the Holy Spirit to fill each of you in such a way that there will be a peace and joy and power to stand that you and others around you will know that no earthly strength could muster up, but only our strong and powerful God can give.

    How thankful I am to hear of a few days of improved health and strength. I will be asking Jesus for more of those as Katy goes through her therapy in these next two weeks.

    We love you guys!
