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

A Comprehensive Visit

Our time at Mayo is about to come to a close.  As we have previously shared, it has been an interesting visit with multiple highs and lows.  All in all, we have probably had our most comprehensive trip in four years.  We have been absolutely amazed by our busyness here at the clinic.  In the past, we have had downtime to gather our thoughts, update the blog, check emails, and check in with family and friends.  This go-round, not so much!  As mentioned earlier, it truly has been a whirlwind.

Overall, today was a good day.  We met with an Endocrinologist, Nephrologist, Internal Medicine, and lastly our Neuro Specialist that deals with Princess' dysautonomia.  Additionally, we had more testing.  Thank you for your continued prayers.  Princess has been able to keep her strength up despite the chaotic schedule and continuing to have numerous seizures.  At the time of posting this evening, she has had five seizures today.

Thank you, as well, for praying for our visits.  Progress has been made in discovering more about Princess' seizures.  Unfortunately, we are not coming home with a cure, but do feel that the direction we are heading could provide some relief in the future.  In our future we will most likely have more trips planned

Answered Prayers:
 - Communication with the Physicians both in the Hospital and the Clinic
 - Revealing and telling information regarding Princess' seizures.  We can now reasonably assume which seizures are occurring on the right side of the brain vs. the left side of the brain based upon physical manifestation.
 - Direction and Peace regarding medicine changes
 - Many of you have been praying for Miss C and we are EXTREMELY happy to announce that she has been granted permission and an extension of 6 MORE months to be with our family.
- Two of our main Physicians here have been fighting and not stopping in trying to find a solution for Princess.  It has been great to form a relationship with the doctors and just learn from them.
- Faithful friends who have journeyed well (both back home and here in Rochester)
- God's provision for us while here and the many blessings
- Healing of Critter's ear infection
- Opportunities to share Christ through our story and marriage

Lastly, if you know someone who is going through cancer or has dealt with cancer and has survived, today is World Cancer Day.  Praise The Lord for His healing in so many and Praise God for my healing just 7 years ago!

We'll look forward to posting more soon!
