Friday March 30, 2007

The night was so good I was sure Katy would have a better day. However, she is not better. I have an appointment at three o’clock to have her blood drawn to check for the root problem. The issues of muscle tightening and bone pain have prompted this action. Katy is not very responsive today but that is typical when her pain level climbs. We are trusting in the One who made her to heal her. The lab reports will likely not be read to us until tomorrow. We have been brought to the place of surrender again, and only through discipline and obedience to God’s word we will all keep our hope fixed on the right thing.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:1-5

    You are all in my prayers. I hope the test results reveal what’s going on and some stability is ahead.

    That Romans text is always close to my heart. Hope does not disappoint. Hang in there.

    Hi There:

    I am sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well again Katy, my husband and I are praying for you up here in Canada as well.

    I mentioned last time I wrote about my brother Kirk and ya know as I read your blog it just feels so very familiar to me. Kirk went through quite a lot the same as you are Katy, Kirk is 36 now and is doing pretty well, in fact he was at the hospital to check in with the doc who saved his life more times then we can ever thank him for yesterday and he had a good appt. You know tho he went through so much of this trying to get his electrolytes balanced and it took so long, as you said they don’t always come out in the results of the bloodwork. Anyway I guess what I am trying to say is hang in there kiddo, you’re not alone and we are all behind you. If there is anyhting we can do to help from here just ask ok.

    I am so sorry that Katy is having such a bad day today. Please let her know that my thoughts are with her as well as my prayers. I do hope that the bloodwork will reveal something that would help all of you to cope with this better.
    Love always

    Dear Katy,
    I am so sorry that you are not finding relief. I trust that it is coming. I pray for you and your family daily. I know that God will give you strength.

    It seems so strange that just as a treatment seems to be working, it fails again, or new symptoms crop up or old ones return. It almost seems as though Satan has a hand in this, trying to break you very dear ones. I’m glad the magnesium treatment helped for awhile. Lord Jesus, please help the doctors find the way, or please give Katy another bit of respite in Your arms. Strengthen Dawn and Paul with your all-sufficient loving strength and grace. We know that “all things still work together for the good of those who love you”, but at times our faith needs Divine strenthening. Touch each of their hearts with a mighty miracle of joy, the joy of your Holy Spirit being poured out for this specific time of trial, so that the JOY of the Lord will be their strength. I ask you Father, in Jesus’ Name.

    We continue to pray for you all. We never know what a day or night will bring. Our hope is that you will turn the corner and start climbing the peak out of this valley!
    Love David and Lizi
