Oh my goodness, where to begin.....
Well, my dear friends, you've done it once again. You've blown me (and Bartley) away with your kindness, with your comments and emails, private messages and Instagram comments.....you've blown me away with the outpouring of love and support that I've received. You've blown me away with the way that you care. Thank you. Each of you. Whether you commented or offered suggestions or offered to pray or all of the above, I know that so many of you are supporting us, are lifting us up in prayer, and so many of you have sent so much love and so many well wishes and I just wanted to make sure you know how much I appreciate each of you. I've been moved to tears more than once this week as you've taken turns reaching out to me and giving me big ole cyber hugs.
My appointment with the allergist/immunologist is tomorrow (Monday) morning super early. I'm not sure if they'll be doing the skin prick testing or if they'll do a big blood draw. Heck, at this point, I hope they do it all just so we can get as much info as possible out of this appointment. I told you last week that we're praying with all our hearts, that God would allow us to get some definitive answers out of this testing -- that we'll finally know what's causing my stomach issues, and that it'll be something we can fix or avoid or treat easily! And yet, I'm reminding myself that I ultimately want God's will for my life even if I don't get "my way" tomorrow. His ways are not our ways and sometimes He chooses to work differently than we would choose. He knows what's best....it's my job to trust Him. In the meantime, I'm pouring out my heart to Him, knowing that He hears my cry, He sees each tear and He CARES (He cares about you too!). He loves me and holds me and this issue in the palm of His hand. I'm trusting Him with the outcome, come what may.
I had a miserable Thursday and Friday this past week and after being SO sick, woke up feeling like a new woman on Saturday! Granted, I still didn't feel totally normal, but compared to how sick I'd been on Thursday and Friday, I felt amazing! I've been chomping at the bit for flowers lately and felt like a trip to the nursery was in order, so that's how we spent our Saturday morning and it was wonderful! Granted, it's way too soon to plant anything here. Good grief, it SNOWED again last night! Um, fyi, it's nearly April!! Haha. But regardless of the cold weather here, we were still able to enjoy all the flowers that are indoors at the nursery and we even brought some indoor flowers home to tend and love and enjoy until we can get to planting outside. Here are a few more pictures from our time at the nursery....
Thanks again for your support and friendship. And thank you for joining with us in praying about this whole situation and about this doctor's appointment tomorrow. I don't know how soon I'll have results from the testing, because it'll partly depend on what kind of tests they end up doing. But I'll try to update you when I can. Keep an eye out on twitter or instagram, if you want to watch for mini updates. ;)
I appreciate you more than you know.
