Nick had an appointment at 3:00 today to remove his drain and get an update on radiation info. We had to laugh because it seems like if it can go wrong it will!! We went to Dr, Pirris' office to remove the drain and they could not get it to come out after much tugging. So we had to go to the plastic surgeon who put it in. He had to do a procedure to remove it. Thankfully it came out easily enough for him and without to much discomfort. The plastic surgeon was from South Africa and told us how he travels abroad once a year and does surgery on approx. 95 kids who have cleft palates. We did enjoy listening to him speak about his travels.
Nick was very emotional today. His right arm felt more numb today than ever before. So we are still in limbo right now as to how the Doctors are going to proceed. We hope to have more definitive answers tomorrow. Nick has been talking so much about life, family,friends the Lord. Sometimes it makes me joyful and other times it breaks my heart to hear about the things that he is yearning to do.
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
Nicks boldness to talk about God and all he has done for us is amazing. I mean I can honestly say I do not know if I could do the same, if I were in the position Nick is in, with all he has going on, running into one set back after the next and not knowing what the future holds . Could I still be that bold for God? I sure hope so. It is remarkable to listen to him talk about how good God is taking care of him (of us) and how much he trust Him for everything. Even on the dark days (like today), through the tears, the fear, I hear him crying out to his Savour to take care of him and help him through. God has, God does, God always will!!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Nick has such a grasp on trusting the Lord fully right now. I pray I can always be as bold and trusting as he is right now no matter what the situation is.
God is powerful and holy!! He wants us to be bold with our requests, comfortable in His presence and then trust in Him completely to take care of us.
Thank you for loving us and walking hand in hand with us as these days unfold and so much uncertainty lies ahead. We trusted God to take care of us and he brought us each of you!!
Trusting in His Authority,
