Maggie's Surgery Canceled




When the call came today that Maggie's special expanders for her head would not be here in time for surgery and it would have to be re-scheduled my heart literally dropped and my spirit felt as if it had just left me ... I was lost for a moment ... Asking all the WHY's that I could in my head ... I was actually at an event selling 147 gear and some sweet women just surrounded me and prayed ... I am thankful for sisters who walk with me and understand the struggles that my family as been through over the last couple of years ...

I don't have much else to add except that I KNOW GOD IS IN CONTROL and I am going sit and be sad for a bit ...

Love You All ...

Precious sister friend, I am sitting here feeling sad with you. I was actually hoping to post a "we are already praying for things to go well sort of post" because I have been...... when I read the disappointing news of need to reschedule. Yes, I agree God is in control and am so often reminded, His ways are not always our ways......but I also know God is quite alright with us feeling sad for a bit because we want our Maggie to be on her way to physical recovery sooner rather than later. Hold on friend,and try to rest, as we wait for healing a bit later. Mathew 6:8 Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

So sad for you and Maggie that she couldn't get the surgery done yet. My prayers are with you as you wait for the surgery and court news from Uganda! God is in complete control and hopefully you find some peace and rest in that tonight! Thanks for being a great example during this long wait. Love ya!!!

Oh sweet Gwen... This has to be a hard blow after all the planning and getting things ready both in your heart and head. These are biggies but I know you know. Take some time and know we are praying peace over you that He will fill you with all of Him. He is our rock and knows the why's of it all.
He just wants to keep growing you cause He knows you are a light to all!

Love you, LIsa

Hugs.
Even though we are complete strangers, you continually bless me with your words; your honesty and your reliance on our Savior have truly bolstered me in my times of struggle.
He is working to make things as they should be, even when they surpass our own understanding.

Praying for you today.

James 1:27 Family said...

I'm so sorry. My mommy heart aches with your mommy heart. I pray that God shows you a glimpse of His supreme knowledge and timing.... like maybe one of the surgery techs has an infection that would have spread to Maggie, or one of the pieces of medical equipment is scheduled for maintenance tomorrow and would have failed today. Praying for healing physically and emotionally for you and your whole family.

Much love in precious Jesus,
Amy

This so reminds me of the emotions we had around Maddie's cochlear implant. First, her surgery was almost delayed because the implant had not arrived. We waited pre-op for 2 hours until FEDEX could get it there. Then...activation was delayed due to weather problems. The delay meant my husband was not in town to see it turned-on. God and I had some serious, soul-searching talks! At the end-of-the-day, I don't know the answer to the "why" question. I do know, however, that God is our Father of the details and that he is guiding us each step of the way!
