procedure at 2:00 today

Ryan is going to the GI lab today to have a g/j button put in. Instead of giving you a big explanation, I’m copying a post by a special needs mom I found on the Internet; she did a great job explaining exactly what is going on so read the link if you can. There are pictures of the button he is getting too.

He already has a g button in his stomach so they will take it out and put the g/j tube in its place. My friend Candy will be with me all day. Please continue to pray Ryan’s bowels will wake up and this procedure will work. And we would greatly appreciate your prayers for Travis. He is in the office for the last time today, and I know it’s going to be a rough day. We simply can’t question the will of God right now and continue to trust He knows what he is doing. I can’t navigate through the fog to see what is ahead but I trust he has prepared the way. I’m certainly not enjoying the events of our life right now but in the midst of the stress and worry, I can honestly say I have not lost my joy.  I’ll update after his procedure.

Jeremiah 31:25 ~ For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.

Above all, trust in the slow work of God

We are quite naturally impatient in everything

to reach the end without delay

We should like to skip the intermediate stages.

We are impatient of being on the way to something

unknown, something new. And yet it is the law of all progress

that it is made by passing through

some stages of instability-

and that it may take a very long time.  And so I think it is with you.

your ideas mature gradually – let them grow,

let them shape themselves, without undue haste. Don’t try to force them on,

as though you could be today what time

(that is to say, grace and circumstances

acting on your own good will)

will make of you tomorrow. Only God could say what this new spirit

gradually forming within you will be. Give Our Lord the benefit of believing

that his hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself

in suspense and incomplete.

  1. Kim,

    I think I saw you in church yesterday but didn’t get a chance to say “hi”; please know we’re all continuing to pray for Ryan and all of you – pastors, staff, worship team & many others! We will keep praying for Ryan’s bowels to wake up, and for you and Travis to have strength for each day!

    Trusting Him,
    Steve Mills
