Setback

What is going on? Katie is having trouble with choking, and as you can see from the x-ray taken yesterday, her new airway is gone! We are distraught, trying to understand why all that incredible airway has disappeared. Please pray for her - we've got to get some answers and save that airway. It all may have been too much, too fast. We've had so much faith and hope, and need to regain it after seeing this picture. Pam and I are going to fast from Thursday lunch to Friday lunch to see if we can get some increased understanding of where to go from here. We can't have the entire summer's efforts go up in smoke! Please pray with us, that everyone involved can be inspired to know how to proceed. And if you'd like to join us in our fast, please do.

The outer cosmetic changes are a nice side benefit, but our whole purpose was to establish a permanent airway. Dear Lord, help us get that airway back, please!

All our love,

- Glenn, Pam and Katie

  1. When we were in Sunday School three weeks ago, we talked about how Abraham gave Issac up to God's providence as an act of faith and God honored that trust. It is always hard for me to remember that God the Father is able to love and care for my children more than I ever will be-especially since my will is so infrequently His- but I hope that knowing He cares for Katie helps bring you peace. We will definitely keep praying for you, and I hope that your fast helps bring clarity.

    And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
