Update on Ward

             Wards MRI showed that he still has the cyst. Our surgeon wants to put in a tube that will connect to the shunt to drain the cyst. Ward will have surgery tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. This has been tough because we thought we would have the shunt surgery and the fluid would be gone. We had no idea that as the fluid drained, there would be a cyst. I took a few days to pray and really asked the Lord how to feel now? I asked the Lord to give me a new song. I spent some time with some of my girlfriends this past Friday. When I got home I realized I had not thought about the surgery all day. I had peace in my heart. I feel that this is part of Wards testimony. I am in the midst of it. Brian had the opportunity to speak with a family who have a daughter who had a shunt at birth just like Ward. Her body rejected the shunt and over the course of the next 15 years, she has had 72 surgeries. Her parents are such a picture of faithfulness. After all they have been through they still call upon the same Lord we will call upon tomorrow at 11:30. So, I trust in my Jesus. He is in the midst of a beautiful testimony on my sweet Ward. This 15 year old girl I told you about.... She just gave testimony of the Lord to the kids at her high school! That fires me up. She has been through the fire and she is still able to stand on Jesus! WOW!  So, He gave me my new song. A song of peace in a storm. Only the Lord can do that!!!
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
For your prayers!!

Psalm 40:3 - He has put a new song in my mouth - Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.
