i am leaving on a family vacation tomorrow with the requisite amount of guilt that i am being spoiled because i was just gone 2 weekends ago on that work trip. but as i told michael, the more refreshed i am, the better his life is since i am the one taking care of him most of the time. so the kids and i have been looking forward to this branson, missouri trip with my parents and one of my sister’s family for a while. we will swim and read and laugh and play. mike is being taken care of by a few Young Life friends who are coming up with hilarious creative ways to entertain him. mckaela was compulsively reminding mike that we would be back from our vacation and would never leave him so he needn’t worry. and i thought i had finished getting ready to leave yesterday but there’s always something else no matter where you turn. which reminds me that that is precisely the way i am experiencing God’s love as of late. no matter where i turn, whatever mundane average task i am engaged in, God sends something my way to inform me that he still has our every need taken care of, at the store, at the doctor, church or the playground. i feel like i cannot get away from him and i wouldn’t want it any other way. it reminds me of the psalm i made as a poster for my dorm wall so long ago which we listened to in church this week… “Where can i go from your presence?” there is no place, no heaven or hell that will ever separate me from this Savior i love.
on a practical prayer note… mike finished his allowance for speech and occupational therapy and will finish physical soon. Don will continue the exercises these people worked on with mike. i tried to get him evluated for marianjoy but we are currently awaiting the earliest appointment which is for august 15 unfortunately. i guess i will put that in God’s hands as well instead of being impatient with it. meanwhile, the speech therapist did give hie recommendation for a video swallow study to allow mike some aount of food again. Our study is scheduled june 19 and if that goes well we can make an appointment with a pulmonologist to look at the trach and its necessity. we are really looking forward to knocking down a few of those dominoes. pray, pray for it all, us all. we are watching God move,
