Whew… (Macy Update 6.19.08)

macy’s new cast

Ever have one of those days where you know you have to do something that you don’t really want to do and the stress builds and your stomach is in knots and you have a raging headache? That was today. We had our doctors appointment at San Diego Children’s Hospital to discuss the results of Macy’s bone scan. Jen and I didn’t talk much about how we were feeling, but by now we both know exactly what we’re feeling. And both of us were fearing and preparing ourselves for the worst news.

Well, after a really rough week, we got an answer that set our hearts and minds at peace. The doctor believes that Macy’s leg either never fully healed, or she re-fractured her tibia. So Macy got a new cast and will wear it for the next week and a half.

Jen and I both looked at each other and knew without saying that a TON of weight had been lifted off our shoulders. And I went, “whew”…

I don’t know how our faith was shown in this situation. We did our best, asked for tons of prayer, leaned on God, family, and friends for support, and he gave us great news. It almost felt like he gave us our daughter back, a reminder of the Bible story of Issac.

So, once again, thank you all again for your love, support, and prayers. We feel it, and now we are going to focus on YOU. How can we as a family pray for you over the next week?

    that’s great news and am glad for no worse! w00t!

    I could use some prayer about a couple of church job opps that seem to have gotten pushed to the forefront as of late. Thanks.

    Hey guys. I don’t know you. But I have a three year old boy and a one year old girlie girl. My stomach was sick for you and Macy. I can only imagine what your week was like. I’m glad that it’s just a break and nothing more. Thank you for sharing.

    We’re SO glad that it’s just a broken leg and nothing else. Although a broken leg is no fun either! Hope it heals up really strong this time around!

    I’m so glad it was something easily healed. I kept praying that it was something simple. In the scheme of things…I guess this is. Please pray for Chuck as he is actively looking for another job. He hates being away from us! Plus he doesn’t like his job. Pray that God opens a door of opportunity for him that no man can touch!

    That is great news man!

    Hey and too, it was an encouragement for me to see that even in a time of uncertainty you were not afraid to admit that you were nervous. We like to put up fronts sometimes to make people think we’re not worried, and that ticks me off.

    Thanks for keeping it real man.

  7. Alex's Mom

    Praise God for answered prayer! As the saying goes “Parenting isn’t for wooses!

    We love you guys! Keep up the good work!

  8. Vern & Barbara

    Praise the Lord for the good report!

  9. Karl

    Echoing all the other comments. Praise God, and I can’t even imagine how much better you guys are feeling right now!

    Thank you everyone for the kind words & encouragements!

    So far we’re going to be praying for:
    – Pete’s job opportunities
    – Chuck’s job & the Hudsons
    And we’ll be thanking God for all the support from all of you by name. Any other takers?

  13. Amie

    Alex, praise the Lord… He truly is the healer. And we are going to keep praying for the complete and total recovery, and continued peace to you and your family. And so let it be….

    My daughter loves pink…she’d probably break her leg to get a cast like that. (maybe not)

    Great attitude about praying for everyone else man. You can pray that I get some sleep. Had a lot of late nights recently.
