We are sitting in the hospital waiting to be admitted. In about one hour Phoebe will receive chemo through a spinal tap. Unfortunately, that requires her to be sedated. The rest of the week she will be in-patient receiving IV chemo.
It’s hard to explain how difficult it is to take her in for these kinds of treatments. I would expound upon that a little more, but I’m not as in touch with my “feelings” as Amey is. : )
Tomorrow afternoon we close on our first home and we will spend the next three days repairing, painting and getting it “Phoebe ready.” Our YWAM family and First Baptist Church family are really coming along side us. It both humbles us and blesses us to be apart of these amazing communities of believers. What would we do without the body of Christ!?
We got the house! I mentioned a property we were looking at in East Texas back in August in one of my posts, and I am happy to announce we will be moving to Lindale in just a couple of weeks. After 12 years of marriage, 4 babies, lots of traveling to and from Latin America and living for 3 years in Mexico, we are putting down roots and purchasing our first home! We are excited and yet nervous to be moving away from Children’s Medical Center Dallas, and to be heading back to our friends and family in East Texas. I felt led to write about what this move means for us and quite a bit about ministry, but I turned out THREE pages of stuff and found it fit better on our family ministry website. So here is a (not very great) picture of our house-to-be:
And if you want to read my ramblings about home and ministry, you can find that here:
