I'm here.

Crazy how starting back to school with FOUR kids has thrown me for such a loop this year.

Somehow there hasn't been any time to blog.

This morning Tejan and I go to the hopsital for a day of testing. I expect to be at the hospital most of the time this whole week... with surgery scheduled for Wednesday...

We have several families bringing us meals this week... what a blessing. I am so thankful to not have to worry about cooking/providing healthy meals for the family...

Tejan told me last night at bedtime that he is not worried about going today. But this is a pattern I see in him... he seems fine facing new things until just minutes before it's time to go. And then he curls up in a ball and refuses to move. (Sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively.) The point is - he puts the brakes on big time. I anticipate the same thing when it's time to go today. I'm a bit anxious, because I'm unfamiliar with this hospital... for some reason, I'm all freaked out about not knowing where to park. Or whether I should bring lunches for us...

I know we'll get through the day.

But if you're the praying sort, could you remember us today?

So far, being in America has been one grand adventure for this little boy.

Today starts some pretty scary stuff for him.

Pray that I can comfort him and be able to support him and help him feel safe.

Pray that the doctors can fix his legs completely.

Pray that he will have courage.

Thanks, friends.

Happy Monday.

    Jackie met this morning for our usual Monday am together.
    We already lifted you up in prayer today and will continue to do so thru the week.

  2. Praying for you all, Cath!

  3. Me, too, Cathy.
    He couldn't have a better family to help him thru this.

  4. Oh man, you were expecting a healthy meal? I'm glad I ran out of time to bake something for dessert :)

    We've prayed all day and will continue. Sweet little boy.


I love it when people talk back...
