Step One: Moving Forward

We went and saw Dr. L on Monday, August 18th, and I can say that it was a good appointment. Since Dr. L is so "important" he has a group of doctors that he calls his fellows and we see a fellow first, then we get to talk to Dr. L. I think these fellows are doing a type of residency under Dr. L. I have learned the routine of these appointments since we have been so many times, so as soon as one of his fellows came in I made sure I ask all my questions (Dr. L is very quick and to the point when he comes in). I was able to get my questions asked and get some comforting words about the outcome of the surgery. The surgery will come sooner than we expected. We are planning on it happening within the next month if everything works out. This is the first of many important steps that we will have to take along this journey. It is kind of exciting, but also very scary that everything is starting to happen. We really need good results from this surgery to be able to move forward with the next step, so this is a very important step of our journey. When we find out when the surgery will be I will let you know. Until then please keep praying for our little miracle and our strength to endure this journey.

I know I have not given out any of the details of our specific situation, because they are very personal to us. I will probably never post details of the surgery or any other procedure that we will have. I started this blog because we need your prayers for comfort, strength, patience, acceptance, endurance and joy. We are truly blessed to have such great families and church friends that have helped us make it through each step of this journey, thanks for your many prayers!

Lindsey,

Thank you for starting this blog to let us know you were going through such trials. I had no idea, but now am able to pray for you and Marcus. You do not have to give details that are personal, the Holy Spirit can intercede where we leave off. Kris and I are praying daily for you and Marcus to have your bundle of joy very soon!
We love you guys!
