We are in the midst of a storm, but there is so much to be thankful for as well. There is a song by Casting Crowns that has been replaying in my head all morning. The chorus says,
And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm
- Our God never leaves our side. And thankfully He already knows what the future holds. Above all else, God is good – all the the time.
- We have so many wonderful friends and family. Thank you all for your prayers, hugs, and physical help. We need your help and will continue to need help for many, many months to come, but we are not very good at asking for it sometimes. Maybe this is God way of growing us in this area. Please don’t be offended if you ask how you can help, and we say, “I don’t know.” Especially right now, we don’t know. We don’t know what we are going to need, but know above all else that we are so very appreciative.
- D went to the doctor this morning, and they let us know that the insurance approved the PET Scan. He will have a “planning CT Scan” and the PET Scan both done tomorrow morning. After this his radiology oncologist will start planning and mapping out his radiation treatment plan. We will meet again with his doctors later this week to finalize everything. We are hoping that they will be able to place his chemo port on Friday. This will be an outpatient minor surgery. And then Monday, Feb. 6th, he will start his chemo and radiation treatments. We are grateful that everything seems to be falling into place with very few hiccups. So far, his doctors have been good and are treating this very aggressively.
This may be a storm we are in the middle of, but we will continue to praise God for His mercies are new everyday.
