I just realized that I didn't give you any chain of events in the last blog so here goes bullet point style...before Christmas Tina had a large seizure and the doctors saw a spot on her brain that they couldn't identify for certain...for the month following she was unable to sleep more than 1-2 hours a night due to the steroids she was on to decrease the swelling in her brain...she felt fatigued and worn out everyday but her hope and spirit was joyful...last Thursday and Friday she had several grand mal seizures so I took her to the ER @ MD Anderson and they admitted her on Saturday...they increased her meds a lot and she is currently resting and....

Have you ever had to wait for something and you think to much longer? Well...we are still waiting to see the neurosurgeon. They are waiting until Tina is seizure free to proceed so that is something you can be praying about.

Speaking about waiting it reminds me of Tina's favorite verse in Isaiah 40:31 which says "...those who wait on the LORD will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." So if you find yourself waiting on something in your life remember that when you wait and allow the Lord to work in your situation that He will renew you and give you His strength.

By the way if you are wondering about our little Katie bug...God has protected her from all of this and she has never seen Tina have a seizure in the past 3 years and she is bubbling over with 3 year old wonder and joy, for example after visiting her mommy on Sunday at MDA she walked away smiling and singing 'Jesus Loves Me' through the hallways of the hospital :)
