"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Sleeping Beauty

Rachel has been sleeping alot.  She was awake for about 3 hours yesterday (in total!) and then slept all night, waking only once just to eat a little bit.  And so we wonder what the this day will hold.....

Last night, Abigail and I curled up on the couch with some popcorn to watch "Little Mermaid".  And Dave took Ethan to a Harlem Globetrotters game. (someone gave us two tickets!) Ethan talked a blue streak about it when he got back.  He's talking to the chef at the house right now about it:) Thank you so much!!  It was a wonderful interlude in a week somewhat overshadowed by Rachel's spells. 

We are hoping to do something as a family this afternoon.  If Rachel was doing well, we would have considered leaving her here and take off into the mountains.  But we're thinking we might go to a park in the city instead.  I'm really looking forward to being outside again!!


Thank-you so much for your prayers.  I am feeling a bit more anxious today.  I keep thinking that I hear her pre-spell cry all the time.  But at the same time, I know that God is with us.  It is well.

Hi Kendra,

I shared the fact that Rachel had two spells this week with my pastor this evening prior to our prayer meeting. There were several little clusters of people specially praying for you and your lovely family tonight. I've been praying for you too. I love you guys, God will give you the strength.

Anxiety is so hard... (as an aside, are you taking your b vitamins? :) i know what you're going through is so above & beyond, but they sure help me...)
We will be praying for your family.
