As you prepare for your Thanksgiving celebration, please know how thankful we are for you. You have stood with us and prayed with us through so many hardships and challenges over the past four months. Know that when we say our Thanksgiving prayer we will be remembering you around our table. Know that when Katy takes a bite of her cranberries, you can share in the joy of answered prayer. You can rejoice that God hears, even when it seems like nothing is happening. You can know that when it is your time to walk through deep water or fiery trials, the God who heard your prayers for Katy is in the water and fire with you, too. Thank you, family, friends, and the many prayer partners we have never met.
We did not hear any news from Katy’s doctors so there is nothing new to report today. Tomorrow morning we will be seeing Katy’s surgeon for the removal of the central line. Katy is looking forward to that as it will make getting dressed and bathing so much easier. We’ll have blood test results tomorrow so we will post those.
Katy made the most of her day by napping in the sunshine while I sewed the cradle sheets, blankets, and bumper pad for our first grandchild. When Katy woke up we assembled everything and she stood back and said, “Oh, Mom, now all we need is the baby!” Our cradle is handed down to us and it is probably more than one hundred years old. Colin slept in it when we brought him home from the hospital almost twenty-nine years ago. It was so much fun for me to have a little sewing project this afternoon. I’m thanking God for another “normal” day.
