Today’s been a day of blessings where my cup runneth over! Cathy Hall brought me an array of things to eat from fruit and cream to donuts. Others have also brought food to help fatten me up, and it’s working! Thanks Natalie for peaches, and Arlene for peaches and pretty tarts!
I’ve felt pretty tired all day today, but managed to work in the yard with Alyson and Skyler(my nephew) trimming trees and bushes in the back yard. (I use the term “work” loosely on my part). But the company was fun and they did a fine job of helping me feel useful! The back yard looks great!
Thanks to Tammy Johnson who was here this afternoon and helped me do some cleaning and laundry, then drove me to meet Kala at BYU. Kala and I met with Dave Bigler, a brain specialist who helped us understand the mri better. He had mostly encouraging news, but he was worried about a couple of spots–one in the brain stem, and one around where my vision could be affected. Many of the other spots, he concurred, look like they are dying. I will continue to pray and do all in my power to heal my brain!
Alyson Freedman gave me a card on a difficult day that inspired me to keep going, and I want to share it with you– “I believe in mind over matter. I believe in miracles and blessings both great and small. I believe in possibilities, I believe in the human spirit to prevail. I believe that hurdles in life are meant to be jumped over, not as something to stop us. I believe in you!” That meant a ton on a difficult day. With God nothing is impossible and we all believe in miracles! Thank you for all your encouraging comments on the blog and faith in me. I feel like we are an “army” going forward, and there’s no way a “disorganized mutation” stands a chance against the faith and power we all encompass together with God! Love you all–Melanie
