sitting here in limbo.....

It's been almost a week and we are still here. I may have mispoke when I told you all that everything was sunshine and rainbows. Jamie has spent the last 24 hours in pain. In order to stay ahead of this fast growing tumor the doctors removed both of her nerves(sciatic and sacral) at the spine.They also removed her whole glute muscle on her left side,along with a major portion of her sacrum(bone)and replaced it with a plastic mesh to fill the hole. All of this is going to make it even more difficult for her to balance, walk and even ride a bike.She has a tough road ahead of her, we hope that the finish line is on the horizon somewhere.

im praying for you daily, jamie, courtney, and dad! remember all of this is for the Glory of God and His Purpose. keep HIM in the forefront of your minds!

Philippians 4:12-13 (NIV): I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Let me know if there is anything I can do or provide. I have the means to travel out there if you need help w/ ANYTHING (cooking, house-work, errands, etc.). If you need an extra body, I'm there!
