If you don’t know by now, our precious little Annie had an MRI yesterday morning, and the doctors spotted an abnormal mass or tumor in the 4th ventricle of her brain.
Here she is getting weighed and having her blood pressure taken prior to the MRI….she cooperated happily and never even cried when her blood was drawn.
We don’t have a Pediatric Neurologist here in town, so nobody was really sure what they were looking at, and so we were referred to a specialist in Dallas and we’ll take Annie to see him Friday morning and let him read her MRI.
I’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of phone calls, emails, texts….and I’m really sorry, I just am not up to answering the phone right now. I want to thank everyone SO much for all the support and especially the prayers. Thank you for all the emails and texts; I read through all of them and I can’t tell the peace it brings me.
I’ve gotten lots of questions, most of which I don’t know the answers to.
Is it cancer?
Is it malignant?
Can they remove it?
Will they do surgery?
Will they keep her overnight in Dallas?
Do you need anything?
What can I do to help?
I have no idean what the answers are to any of those questions.
I have no idea what today even holds for us….I just can’t think.
What I do know is that…
Today, she’s home with me, and I’m spending the day holding her and playing with her.
Today, and every day, God is in control.
Everything God does is good….God is good, all the time.
God has a plan for Annie’s life.
None of this caught God by surprise.
God is the shepherd who tenderly holds the little lambs in His arms, and even now, He is tenderly holding our Annie.
God is the Great Physician, and if He so chooses, He can make all of this go away.
But even if He doesn’t, God is still good.
The Lord is our refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in Him.
My hearts desire is that my life and the lives of my children bring Glory to God always. (I know that I fail miserably…)
No matter the outcome, may God be Glorified.
