Thank you all so very much for you continuing support, prayers and encouragement for us, especially over the last couple of days. As you can imagine we are emotionally depleted. Talking about things that seem so un-natural to talk about. Making plans that we dread making. Really just trying to wrap our heads around it all. There is a calmness surrounding us...God's peace no doubt.We are so very sad and scared, but we continue to seek God's wisdom and guidance in all that we do.
Nick continues to amaze me with his strength. Daily he is moved by the kindness of the people that God has placed around us. He talks about the love he feels from everyone. I tell you this so that you are encouraged and know that the Lord has put you in our lives for so many reasons. We feel the comfort of your prayers surrounding us everyday. It is an awesome sight to witness all the wonderful things that are taking place around us. It uplifts Nick(and me & Aaron) so much to see the many God things that are unfolding in our lives and the lives of so many of our friends and family. God has purpose for all of this. We talk about that a lot. Nick knows he will not realize the magnitude of all of this until he has left this earth and is resting in his sweet Savour's arms.
With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. 2 Thessalonians 1:11
Physically, Nick seems pretty good. We are still having trouble with his PICC. The home health nurse cannot draw blood. So now every Monday and Thursday morning we will go to Mayo for labs until he his finished with his antibiotic (August 24th). Also still a small issue with his wound, hopefully that will be cleared up in the next few days. We are hoping he can start chemo in the next couple of weeks. So we continue just to wait it out and pray it out!!
We know our Heavenly Father has set in place a plan and has a purpose for what is happening in our lives. Just as we want what is best for our children, so does our gracious Father want for us.
Everyday when we count our blessings we ALWAYS count you!
No additional paralysis
No additional infections
No pain ( Glory to the Highest we have been blessed so far with this)
Daily emotional strength for the three of us.
