A week and a half ago, Miss Joy had a scheduled sedated MRI. We thought it would be routine. As soon as we got out of recovery, we were wheeled up to our scheduled appointment with our neurosurgeon. After review of the MRI, Dr M was concerned about Kasidi's increased spasticity, despite regular botox injections.
He recommended we address the tether in Kasidi's thoracic spine, as well as a cyst in the same region.
Two years ago Dr M performed a lamenectomy on Kasidi's lumbar spine, and we saw major improvement. It was after that surgery that she began to walk independently!
Even in the fear of the unknowns to this Mama, I acknowledge that we serve a mighty God who knit my daughter together in her mother's womb and has loved her since the beginning of time, and He will bring her through this beyond our expectations. No doubt, He has a plan for our courageous Miss Joy!
TO HIM BE GLORY!

While our stories differ a bit, there are similarities.
While our children share residual effects of their histories, they are each unique.
Whether I am writing or sharing deep posts such as these, I pause to recall the purpose of my blog. I'll admit that I've deleted many drafts simply because they didn't meet the criteria of glorifying God. The second purpose of my blog is to give friends and family a window into our daily
This blog is a journal that chronicles God's goodness in our lives. It reminds us of the dark places we've been and the many times and ways He has brought us to the light, whether by removing the mountain or refining us in the trek over it.
In summary, the theme of my blog is that God is ABLE! There is simply nothing bigger than our heavenly Father.
With each of Diane's posts, I will include her 'Note to the Reader,' and I would ask that you show respect and kindness in your comments. She has courageously addressed a topic that has been overlooked far too long, and to the detriment of families feeling isolated and guilt-ridden. You may read it here or click the link to her blog.
To Him be the glory!

We've had to make some priority changes this summer. It feels like we're just hunkered down here on the farm, alienated from the activities going on around us. And maybe we are...for a season.
The crop is so abundant that it requires much attention.
So our prayer has been that we would be diligent in stewarding the Lord's crop. And satisfied in Him.
He has given us energy in times of exhaustion.
He has given us strength in times of weakness.
He has given us hope in times of struggle.
We have spent a lot of time together as a family.
Of course, that's always peachy *ahem*.
Our sorters start at 5 am, so we've ditched the frozen waffles and cold cereal (and there's nothing wrong with those!) for homemade breakfast every morning.
We still have over 2 weeks of harvest left.
We are tired, but we are so blessed!
We praise the Lord for His crop!
