The Waiting is the Hardest Part

OK, not really, but it isn't easy.

Dave here again. We have to wait one more day for the much anticipated pathology report. The doctor's office called this afternoon to let us know the pathologist has a backlog due to the holiday weekend. It will be some time tomorrow (Wed) afternoon.

In other news, Julie is doing amazingly well and I'm so proud of her and how she is handling all this. She continues to praise God and trust him with everything. She's always had a high tolerance for pain and this is no different. She went for two short walks yesterday and as I type this she is out on another walk with her sister, her nephew and some friends.

Some of you have asked about how to leave comments on here. The easiest way is to click on "comments" at the end of the post, enter your comment in the box, and then choose "Name/URL" or "Anonymous" as your identity. If choose "Anonymous" you can still put your name in the comment so we know who you are. Julie really appreciates the comments and encouragement she receives.

Thanks for all your love, support and prayers. We will update again tomorrow when we learn the results.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." - Isaiah 40:31

Hey Jules,
So glad to hear that you are up and about, and out walking, t' boot! Your faith and trust in the Lord is your best form of medicine! Continue to rest in Him as we watch Him move mountains.

Hoping to see you sometime on Thurs night if that would work for you.

Love and miss you! You and your beautiful fam are always in my prayers!!
