After a rough December 2007 we were hopeful for a good start to the new year.
Dec was emotionally, and physically demanding month for us. We have dealt with all that and are on the path to a much happier US. We have been excited about all the unknowns of 2008, also a move, a trip to Hawaii during spring break, Daniel being old enough to attend preschool, our new church callings....the list is endless. What we weren't ready for was this past weeks scares. We are learning to love every moment we have with our family! Spiritually we are preparing for whatever the Lord wants us to endure.
My niece has been under the weather. Their family is waiting on results to hopefully rule out Celiac disease.
Our dog of almost 7 years has been diagnosed with epilepsy and is on life time drugs and bi annual blood tests. A costly ($) diagnoses!
During an annual physical my dad's Dr was a bit concerned. After a few tests he is facing more Dr appointments. The concern is an enlarged Liver and a problem with his pituitary gland. So we all sit a bit anxious for his next appointment and the out come.
Daniel, hasn't been himself since Christmas. He has no energy, no appetite, and sleeps ALL the time. The Dr scared us with terms like Leukemia, Diabetes, and Thyroid problems. Luckily for us we didn't have to wait long for the biggest, scariest words to be eliminated. It is NOT Leukemia, or Diabetes. We have a week to wait on the Thyroid. If it comes back negative he faces more tests.
We have felt stronger this past few weeks and now we realize it might be due to the Lord preparing us for a year of trials. We are still optimistic that the Lord has us firm within his grip!
Kynna, Moby, Dad, and Daniel are even more in our prayers this week! Please keep them in your prayers too?!
