Today is a new day. We ARE on the right path. I just know it.
The meeting of the two ‘God led’ Doctors happened.
When you have come this far in a grueling journey, you begin to see signs all around you. During the meeting yesterday, one of our prayer warriors was at Disney World and captured this picture in the sky and sent it to me.
‘Love U Jesus.’
How fitting. Lots of tears. Because we know that this is all divinely happening. And we will continue to praise our Creator, even in the eye of the storm.
So what happened?
This doctor has kept Derek’s CT scan. He definitely agrees that something has been missed and wants to make sure nothing is overlooked. He made it clear that he is letting GOD guide him! To have a specialist on this level, that is GOD led, is without a shadow of a doubt, a miracle. Because with GOD on our side, “All things are possible!”
Patience is a virtue.
We must be patient.
This doctor has to go through four years of reports and figure out what was missed, and needs heavenly wisdom on how to help Derek. This is a tough case. It’s why we are in the situation we are in. I knew Derek was special, but I told him that he’s not special anymore.
Derek said, “I’m done being remarkable. I just want to be normal again.”
Pray specifically for Derek’s name to be imprinted on this Doctors heart. For heavenly wisdom to REVEAL what has been overlooked and solutions to restore Derek’s life. Pray for Derek, his pressure in his head has been so high. The increase over the past several months, has robbed him even more of life.
This doctor is hoping to have time to really sit down and study Derek’s case Friday afternoon. He sees tough cases, and is very hard to get in. We are SO grateful that he is willing to do this.
And then there is Dr. Michelle. She has gone above and beyond out of love and determination to help my husband. Her dedication is so heroic to us. This IS what a hero looks like. Even though I know she would take no credit. Because that’s what REAL heroes do. They give all glory to God.
Please lift her up in prayer. For continued wisdom. She is also pregnant and pray for the health of her baby and her family.
Forgive me for not writing yesterday. This is all so much to process. I’m still a working mom, and lead many people. My brain has been on overload. To be honest, all I did last night was lay next to Derek watching WWII movies. He loves to watch anything that is inspirational.
Anger. Frustration. Exhaustion. Uncertainty for our future and so much more was haunting me last night. Totally the devil. My prayer warriors reminded me, when you are too tired to pray, it’s ok. We have your back. This is why I’m intentionally encouraging you what to pray for.
And please, remember our children in your prayers. This has been going on for four years. They too are exhausted and have had to make huge adjustments, sacrifices and have had their lives greatly altered. This marathon has been exhausting and I’m so proud of our kids. They always find humor and make us laugh. But I know this is HARD on them.
A dear friend reminded me of one of my favorite bible passages.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
She added in, “Now go have fun today. God’s got this.”
JUST KEEP PRAYING. KEEP BELIEVING.
Keep flooding the heavens with prayers.
