That has been the ongoing conversation had between myself, boomama, and kelli. $14,542.44
Im amazed, in awe and completely humbled. Short of stating Thank you over and over and over and over (and causing you to never return to my blog due to the ridiculous repetition) I will state again, You have blessed us beyond comprehension. My husband and have sat here most of the night just looking at each other and shaking our heads- usually with tears flowing in the process. Unbelievable. We will never be able to say thank you to each and everyone of you who have and continue to participate in this. Never.
So, tomorrow (Friday) I go for my second opinion. Mark asked me today if I was scared- and honestly I am. I am scared that the news is going to be the same, although in some ways I have prepared myself for that. Its weird how your body and mind just go into “coping mode”. It’s like I know what I have, so now lets move forward and do what we need to do.
But what do you do when you cant do anything? That is what scares me.
I am holding out for Mayo. I truly believe that if anyone can get this thing out of my head, they can. And if they cant, they will walk me through the process that will follow.
Physically, I am overwhelmed and exhausted. My appointment is at 4pm tomorrow (we will have to leave at 1:30) so I am hoping to just rest until we leave. Easton is staying the night at Laura’s with her best friend. Elijah will be at my parents, and Emma will be in school.
It will just be me, for the first time since the diagnosis.
I really hope to just sleep. Odds are that wont happen, but that is what I am hoping for.
So, please keep us lifted up tomorrow- how wonderful would it be to come back with absolutely amazing news! Either way- God is already touching lives left and right!
These are but the outer fringe of his works,
how faint the whisper we hear of him!
Who can understand the thunder of his power?”
I think the thunder of His power has resonated throughout the blogging community (and further), wouldn’t ya say?!
