Surgery and Another Note

Grace's surgery went well. She was so brave. She was trying so hard to be a big girl and not cry, but big ol' crocodile tears kept rollin' down her cheek. The mass in her arm pit was indeed a large mass of muscle. He took a piece of it out to biopsy, but says he has no idea why she would have a large over growth of muscle. I say it's cause she has her grandma's genes.

The other doctor removed one of the many lumps in her neck and says that it does not appear to be malignant. Tests results to confirm that will be here in a few days.

She is sore, acting like a drunken sailor, and in a bit of pain...but thrilled to be home.

On another note...I have to post this next thing, because I am just so flippin' excited for my friend. Seriously, thrilled for you!

I have this friend...adopting from a place I love. A place that our family holds dear...you know that place....starts with a U ends with ganda. They have some sweet boys coming from that same place ours came from...you know that one home. Well I just got to say...I can't wait for those boys to get here. I can't wait until William and his friend get to see each other again. I can't wait to hear more amazing stories about what an AWESOME God we have. Ya know, so awesome that He sends $21,000 checks in the mail to pay for adoption because HE loves the orphan and ALWAYS makes a way for them to be home with their families. Just another reminder to all you in the process of bringing home your babies GOD IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY AND ABUNDANTLY MORE THAN WE CAN EVER ASK OR IMAGINE. Not just cause He can, but because HE loves us. Money schmoney....forget about it.

Wow! Praise the Lord!!

That's all, just wow...

I guess some people work to build muscles in their arms or legs, but Gracie must've been working on bulking up that arm pit!!!

Praise the Lord again!

Thanks for that last reminder Melissa! We are also adopting 2 boys from the same place William is from...we're hoping to get to travel with your friend. =) We're at a place of needing to hand over that $21000 and just praying that God will provide. Thanks for reminding me that He will do it!

I am GLAD that Gracie is okay!!!!!!!!!!
