appointment with the surgeon

We meet with the surgeon today at 2:30 (ish)(CDT). Please pray for wisdom and guidance for us. Brian is VERY leery on any surgical option. He simply does not want to go through ANYTHING remotely close to what he went through in April of 2007 (you can go through the archives and read about that hell of a journey). He does not want any more deficits than he has now. If he is living on borrowed time (well, I guess not IF, we all are, really), he wants to spend it enjoying his family and friends and surroundings, not recovering from surgery. Etc. I find that admirable.

Anyway, if you read this post before our appointment time. Think of us. Pray for us. Etc.

Once again, I am humbled by all the response and love to our situation. I keep telling Brian what an amazing impact he has had on the world. He doesn't get it, he says, but in the end, isn't that what we all want: to hope we made a difference for the better on the world.

KEEP BELIEVING

I hope you will find the courage and strenght to keep us updated and by doing so, you definetly help Brian in making his difference in his life as long as God wants him too. Thank you so much.

  22. Angie, It's 11:23pm (CST) now. I didn't not read this early today, so I missed praying during the actual appointment, but am curious how it went. Praying for your family NOW.
