This could be the week....A Post from Patrick

During our "medical" adventures over the past several months, we have traversed the up & down emotions of having our 'hopes up' that a diagnosis was just around the corner.  But only to be disappointed that all results have come back negative again.  Please don't misunderstand, we praised the Lord for every result, especially those results that said, "There is no cancer!"   

But some of the potential illnesses seemed to fit the pattern...the symptoms...and were treatable!  So, when the doctor would mention one of these illnesses and that he ordered a test to identify this possible illness, we secretly became excited....hopeful...planning our future around this diagnosis and the thought that my wife would soon be out of pain and full of strength & energy.

We are currently on the threshold of having to make a major decision as our 1-year medical furlough's end looms just around the corner.  We are fully confident that our God is in perfect control, knowing that He will place us exactly where He wants us to be... Ecc 3:11 "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time..."

This week, I have to admit, we once again find ourselves with our "hopes up" ...Is this the week that we get a name for this "mystery" illness?  Is this the week that we can begin to get Kami the medication that will place her on the road to recovery?  Is this the week that God shows us His perfect will for our future endeavors?  

Please be in prayer with us...for this is the week that the results come back for Lyme's disease.


  1. Praying for an answer!!! I will pass along that when our Ruthie had lyme disease the doctor did say that the results do not always come back positive even if they have it. They treated her anyway and after several treatments she was better ... though it was caught fairly early.

  2. I missed the request for prayer but I'm happy to hear that prayers were answered and it seems in God's timing too. May God give Kami a quicker than anticipated recovery just like Happy Wife's daughter.
