Well, it's been a little while since I've posted. I guess it's because there hasn't been a whole lot of news. There's been a lot of waiting, waiting, waiting.
So far all of my results have come back negative. I know that is good, but still not having an answer is pretty difficult at times.
The next step is waiting for my appointment with the Infectious Disease Doctor. The problem is that the appt. isn't until August 8th. Whoa! That's too far away! I'm on a waiting list, but there is still no word.
Patrick and I began praying about what to do. I don't want to be gone from them any longer, but we both feel I need to stay until we have figured out what is going on. In the midst of praying, I decided to call Mayo Clinic again to see if there are any cancellations. My appt. there is for the 21st of August. Well, I have called many times over the past couple of months and there has never been an earlier appointment available. But, while we were praying, asking God to direct our paths, an appointment became available at Mayo Clinic for this Monday! Wow! I have loved everyone at Cleveland Clinic. I cannot say enough good things about them. But, we feel the Lord is truly leading us to try Mayo.
So, on Sunday, Mom and I (and of course baby Micah) will head to Jacksonville for my appointments at the Mayo Clinic.
In the meantime, Micah is being spoiled! Here's just a few pics from the past couple of weeks.
One day soon I will be well and be back with my family. Oh how I miss them!
Each day the Lord gives me encouragement from His Word. It's always exactly what I need. I've been doing a lot of thinking and reading about storms, but that is another post. The verse I read a few days ago made me call Patrick excited to read it to him. It just blessed me!
Deuteronomy 23:5 "but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee."
I know the Lord can take this situation in our lives, and turn it into something that we would never trade for. We're trusting that "all things work together for good" and seeing the last part of this verse! I love it! Seeing that the Lord loves me, and knowing that He is doing this for my good and for His glory is exactly what I needed to hear!
