We Wait

A quick update to let you know that we don't see the Dr. Greensburg until Monday to allow her hand a chance to heal. She is still have a great amount of pain in her thigh where they harvested the skin for the graft to her hand. She has little to no pain in her hand! Her spirits are great. Some girl friends are coming over after school to visit for a little while. She is looking forward to that! She also enjoyed a brief outing to the store and to get a haircut. We borrowed a wheelchair from church since walking is painful. That is pretty embarrassing for her but it allows her to go places. We aren't sleeping well at night, please pray about that. Pray also for David as seminary classes have started and school at home needs to start too. He has his hands full. Martha (David's sister) will be teaching Abigail and Jacob, that is a huge blessing. David will just need to be watching over Benjamin. We are thankful for the maid who is there Mon-Friday to clean and will prepare their lunch. Hopefully there will be leftovers for supper. David does know how to cook too!

Rebekah receives at least 5 cards daily in the mail, she is enjoying that! Thanks to everyone for their generosity. Financial gifts also keep coming in, even from people we have never met! We all serve the same incredible God.

So glad that Rebekah is able to get around some. And is snowed!! How fun!! I'm sure there are some jealous sibs! We're praying for you all! Are the kids in the middle of a school year or what? I remember that this is the beginning of the school year right?

Hey Rebekah,
It's no fun having to rely on somebody to push you around in a wheelchair. I remember the feeling. People would stare at me like I was crazy last summer when I tore my Achilles and had to ride around in a wheelchair at the store. I share your pain. : ) Keep up your good spirits and trust God. He will make all this pass more quickly than you can imagine and will use this experience to accomplish great things for Him. We are praying for you. We can't wait to see you this summer.
