Ryman is sound asleep in the clouds. Perfect time for a nap actually and the sound of the plane engine and bumpy sky makes for great sleepy sounds. I need this on her sound machine! Jeremy is flying up on Southwest since we bad too much stuff to fly with. We will probably get there about the same time. It’s kind of crazy that I’m looking forward to seeing our Georgetown doctors, our Children’s team and of course Julie, Corey and all our liver friends! I bet Penny will love to see Jeremy (Penny is Julie and Corey’s dog who absolutely hates Jeremy, it’s pretty communal). We talked with the doctors at Vanderbilt today and they really have done an amazing job. It’s just time for her transplant team to see her in person. We think that Dr. Yazigi actually wants to do a scope again to get to the bottom of this stomach distention. We will have to wait for the rotavirus symptoms to clear before doing so. We did find out that her colon biopsy was negative for histoplasmosis. Which is great but leaves the unanswered question of, what is actually causing the bowel issues? Praying for answers while we are here.
We have felt so much love and support and want to thank you all for everything! Fiends keeping the dogs for us, rushing medication to the hospital so we wouldn’t miss the flight (long story), finances, coffee, food, gifts, goody bags, cinnamon toast when I was sick because it was the only thing I wanted, rides to the hospital even when you know I have rotavirus and the list goes on and on! We truly are blessed beyond words. We love you all. I will update again tomorrow once we get settled in at Georgetown!
Now that I am off of airplane mode I’ll post this:
He is taking care of us.
I am taking care of you. Feel the warmth and security of being enveloped in My loving Presence. Every detail of your life is under My control. Moreover, everything fits into a pattern for good, to those who love Me and are called according to My design and purpose.
Because the world is in an abnormal, fallen condition, people tend to think that chance governs the universe. Events may seem to occur randomly,with little or no meaning. People who view the world this way have overlooked one basic fact: the limitations of human understanding. What you know of the world you inhabit is only the tip of the iceberg. Submerged beneath the surface of the visible world are mysteries too vast for you to comprehend. If you could only see how close I am to you and how constantly I work on your behalf, you would never again doubt that I am wonderfully caring for you. This is why you must live by faith, not by sight; trusting in My mysterious, majestic Presence.
We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
—Romans 8:28 amp
Then Job replied to the Lord: “I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted. You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.”
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
—1 Peter 5:7
We live by faith, not by sight.
—2 Corinthians 5:7
