Monday night

We are hopeful tonight because we are choosing to believe that all things are working together for Katy’s good. Her back pain, shortness of breath, and nausea started in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The vomiting started again this afternoon. Her labs will be drawn tomorrow, but Katy already knows the numbers will be high. She’s resting and quiet tonight. We are putting hot pads on her back and abdomen to keep her comfortable. I’ll post tomorrow as soon as I have lab results back and a decision is made. We love being here at home tonight. It is such a place of refuge and peace.

    I hope the two CD’s for Katy have arrived by now, but I have no clue whatsoever about their “turn around time”.
    Last night I attended another of Greg’s concerts … truly uplifting. He now resides outside Los Angeles. When we first heard him perform back in the late 80’s, he was living here in the greater KC area and his 3 children were enrolled in the Christian School. He was a frequent guest soloist at Youth for Chirist back in those days, too. Last night his driver, a young extremely gifted young pianist, closed out the evening’s performance.
    Once again, know that God IS in control. We love you!

    Katy and Family,
    We are continually praying for you. We will pray that you have a good nights sleep and be refreshed in the morning.
    We love you guys!

    My dear ones, how hard it is to know that Katy’s symptoms have recurred. How thankful I am that you are remaining hopeful, because you know that “He who called you is Faithful, and He will do it.” He will yet bring about Katy’s good and blessings to countless others because of her suffering. I am glad you are home tonight in that refuge. And Katy, Blessed congratulations on finishing another paper and test for your course! Your determination and persevance in the face of pain, nausea - such odds are wonderful to see. May the good shepherd be very near to you and all your family tonight.

    Much love, Aunt Lil

    Reading your post I could only think to myself and cry out in my heart, “How long, O Lord, how long? Maranatha, Lord Jesus! Come and rescue your child Katy!” I am aching for you all and pray that Christ will do a supernatural work of healing in Katy. She has persevered for over a year, enduring every conceivable discomfort with grace and patience as you all wait on the Lord. I long for Katy’s healing, but isn’t is wonderful to know that we don’t have to be physically strong to be a mighty warrior for Christ! We can be weak, tired, and even in great pain and be a stronger witness to the grace, power, and love of Christ than the most able-bodied.

    In Christ,
