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

Well, it is almost election day...Praise God!  But this time it is different.  Four years ago today Princess went into SURGERY.  While America had an important decision at hand we here at the Foxhole had an additional weighty decision on hand.  I still remember the day very well.  We had just slept off a fun night with friends and family as we did a hair cutting party and Princess and I both shaved our heads in preparation for this day while at Memorial Hermann Hospital. 

We weren't expecting her surgery to be until a little later but very early we were awoken as the staff came to take Meredith back to surgery... Here is the post from this time...

Well it was quite a wake-up today. About 5:30 this morning, we heard from the surgeon's resident that surgery would be at 9:30. However, we we whisked away at 6:30 and headed in to the surgical unit. Please pray over these next four to five hours as M is undergoing surgery. We will continue to post and update as events unfold. Also, I will be posting pictures later this morning of our "Buzzfest" to benefit Children With Hair Loss.

PS- Two friends that were with us last night at the Buzzfest are about to deliver their first kiddo. Please lift A and L up in your prayers. She was not due till Nov 16. Ironically, it was M's nurse Mary that told them to get to the hospital immediately to see about delivering. So...they have been at the hospital since last night. I know M will be very excited to hear of the days events when she is back with us later today.


So today, is eerily similar.  This time we are facing an important decision for America and tomorrow we will learn what direction America has chosen to follow again.  Additionally, while we are not waking with Physicians coming into our room, we do have luggage packed and we are on our way to Pennsylvania to determine if we can move forward with surgery again, but this time going further trying to eliminate Princess' seizures. 

So please be prayerful for our trip that our time in the hospital will be fruitful.  That the new team of doctors and physicians we will be meeting will be able to bring this 6.5 year journey to a close.  As some of you have been following, just in the last two months, Princess has experienced a dramatic increase in her seizures is upwardly approaching an average of 5 to 6 seizures per day.  Additionally, we are beginning to see even more some of the seizures devastating effects.  

Be looking for more in the coming days!
