Oh my sisters, do you have any idea how wonderful and comforting it is to know that you're all there, praying and sending caring thoughts? I felt your support, and God's presence, all day, and I saw God at work right before my eyes.
After months of fruitless attempts to get help, my brother has finally found caring doctors to help him. It meant the world to me to see his new doctor come into his room this afternoon and spend 15-20 minutes with him, caring, warm, compassionate and listening. All I could do was sit there in grateful wonder and thank God for answering those prayers. We may still have a long way to go, but you have no idea how important THIS day and THIS answer to prayer has been for us.
His pancreas is swollen, and they will be doing a "simple" biopsy tomorrow and a more complicated one on Monday. How can I not ask for more prayers, having seen what God has done through your prayers already?! I'm so scared, but knowing you're all here praying is helping me stay strong and positive...and God is reminding me moment by moment that we have put Gary in His care, so to trust Him that He will take good (the best) care of him.
Thank you, thank you with all my heart for being here. It's a true blessing to have your love and support to lean against.
When you don't like a thing, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
