***UPDATE*** Thank you to all my sweet friends….I have had SO many people volunteer to help me with KB on 5/21!! I just wanted to let you all know that I have this date covered. Thank you all again and again for being so quick to volunteer to help me!!***
I’m pretty sure I forgot to post this on the blog, so here’s the latest.
And I know, its a simple matter of scrolling back through older posts to see if in fact I already mentioned this, but…..this is easier.
So forgive me if you already know.
Annie has an MRI scheduled at Children’s hospital on May 21st at 10:00.
Then an appointment with the neurosurgeon that same day at 2:00.
That appointment is strictly a consultation, where I’m sure he will go over the MRI results with us and we’ll talk surgery….and I’m SURE they won’t miss a chance to talk money with us…
Unless, of course, the tumor is no longer there.
Which is what we, and countless others, are praying for, and if you feel so led, please pray and/or fast* with us and call upon God’s mercy on our behalf!
We know God can make this happen…..heck, I’ve seen Him do it!
So for right now, those are the plans.
Many of you have asked what you can do to help us…..and I have something I need.
KB will need to go home with somebody on that Thursday, May 21st.
I’ll need her to be occupied for several hours until we get home from Dallas! Maybe pick her up at school and drop her off at my parents’ house, or possibly entertain her at your OWN house, feed her dinner, help her with her homework….
We could take her with us, but the poor child doesn’t need the anxiety, and I’m trying my best to keep her in her routine (distracted…busy…entertained…).
So if you’re one of my trusted friends, and you’d like to offer to take responsibility for KB that afternoon and evening, please email me.
Because I hate to ask for yet another favor…I know I’ve pushed my friends to the limits over the past couple of years.
And I may need more favors along these lines if and when surgery is planned, so if you want to offer, that would be great.
*Fasting: I just finished reading the most incredibly life-changing book ever….. Its called Fasting by Jentezen Franklin. Its a subject that I knew pretty much nothing about, until my friend Rikki recommended this book.
I mean, seriously, I grew up being a church rat, at the church every time the doors were opened, camp, choir, mission trips…you name it, if it was a church event, I was there, and then I even went on to get a degree in Christian Ministry from a Baptist University and went to chapel twice a week, in addition to all my religion classes…. and still, I can’t recall ever hearing one single message about fasting!
In my opinion the church has done a pretty poor job of teaching on this subject….. and after reading the book, I have realized that this is something that every Believer needs to do…..Jesus Himself said so!
Do you have a serious issue you’ve been praying about?? A big decision to make?? Feeling like you’re in a spiritual dry-spell?? A relationship problem that won’t resolve itself?? In the middle of a financial crisis??
Then you probably need to fast.
So read it (you won’t be disappointed)….then join me in fasting for Annie…..and then know that I owe you one, and I assure you you can call on me to do the same for you, should you ever face a crisis of your own.
And thank you. 🙂
