And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Prayer Warriors

I'm sorry that I've not updated much on me...little Miss P is so much cuter...

I haven't felt that the Lord has said I could proclaim complete healing yet.  As much as I want to, I haven't felt HIM say, "tell the world!"

28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
   “Yes, Lord,” they replied.
 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; 30 and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” 31 But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region. 
Matthew 9:28-31

I have continued to have auras.  By definition, they are still seizures.  However, the Mayo Clinic said I could count them separately since I can keep my eyes open and I'm not as tired when they are over...thus, they measure auras only as a sign of improvement.

Last month, I only had 33 for the entire month (and NO "seizures").  This month, I'm already at 32 and we're only half way through...I had eight yesterday and I've already had two this morning.  Just a few auras and I still have basic energy.  A day like yesterday and I'm completely spent.

We went to see my neurologist last week and she's just as stumped as to why I stopped having seizures.  Again, we praise the LORD for that healing!!!!

However, it also leaves her not knowing how to get rid of these auras.  Obviously, prayer and complete reliance on the Father is the first step.

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (ESV)
Matthew 18:19-20

We are also trying to decide if I start the IVIG again.  The last time I did it, the seizures went crazy.  However, we found that it was rendering the diet useless due to the proteins in the treatment.  So, now that I am on low dose meds (lowest dose I've ever been on without the Ketogenic Diet), in theory, there is something to help with control...The doc also said that the seizures could come back if we start the treatment again.

So, we are stumped.  We are trying to hear the Lord and walk in the direction that HE leads, not what makes the most sense to us. 

The sweet lady helping us with Miss P came later yesterday which gave me a chance to hang with Miss P by myself.  I loved that special Mommy/Daughter time.  However, I had one sitting at the desk with her in my arms and I couldn't set her down in enough time.  So, I had to just lean over to make sure she didn't fall.  She cried the whole time, which made it last longer.  It is so frustrating...I just want to be healed so that I can be her Mommy with no fears attached.

Sorry for the long post...Please just continue joining us in prayer for HIS ultimate healing, HIS will to be done, and peace and direction through the process!!

You are each such precious gifts to us!  Thank you for your sacrifice of time to beseech HIM on our behalf!

First Trip to Aggieland

P got to make her first trip to Aggieland a few weeks ago!!

B had some clients to meet in College Station.  So, we made it a family trip.  We stayed with our precious friend Trey & Marci in their adorable home!  It's like a perfect little doll house!  I wish I had taken pictures, but I completely forgot...they were so wonderful to allow us to stay with them.

Piper's business

You've got to each take the time to go to Piper's facebook page and see how talented she is...

Piper made all of Miss P's bedding and is making curtains for her so that we can take down the trash bags that we're currently using as curtains!  I have posted a few pics below that I took, but if you go to her facebook page, there are so many more fun and precious things to look at that she's made. 

She is going to start a little business and would make such precious gifts for you and your family!!

P's Bedding that Piper made for her.

Have to quickly brag on my hubby...

 This was an old entertainment center that B repainted and then used to create a changing station for Miss P.  Didn't he do a wonderful job?  It matches her bedding so well.  He's so talented and amazing!  I sure love that man!!!


This is Brandon.  He is an amazing young man that attends our church.
This is his story: Brandon's Story

Brandon has loved on Miss P since very early on...

Snuggling with Brandon

So sweet!!!

Here are some more recent pics.  I think these were taken last month.
Mr. Brandon, what is this in your neck? Maybe I'll be a doctor someday!!

Have y'all met my friend, Brandon?

First Trip

When little Miss P was just a few weeks old, she got to take her first trip.  B has some clients in Texarkana and it was going to be an overnight trip.  So that we weren't home by ourselves, we went with Daddy to work!!!

This is the luggage cart with all of our stuff.  Prior to P, we didn't need a luggage cart, once suitcase did the trick.
Do you really need this much stuff for a kiddo?

As many of you know, Rotary holds a very special place in my heart.  It started with Camp RYLA, progressed to college scholarships, and even my Dad!  Yep, the director of Camp RYLA is the man that walked me down to the aisle to my hubby!!!

So, while in Texarkana, we went to their Rotary Club Meeting!
P's first Rotary Meeting!!!


These are old pictures, but I'm that far behind...I'm going to try to catch up on postings....

Hangin' with Aunt L & Uncle B
