Good News?

I know that there are some of you that have been patiently awaiting an update on how Ellie's MRI went, so since it's been almost four days now since she had it, I think I can officially say that...

No news is good news! 

We feel pretty confident that if they had found anything abnormal (like a brain tumor, which is what they were checking for) that we would definitely have heard something by now.    Although we haven't officially heard the results yet, we feel like we're past the critical/scary part of this introduction into epilepsy, and are looking forward to adjusting to this new challenge in our lives.   
I also wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much we appreciate  your support and prayers through this.

I still have days when tears come easily over worrying about what her future may be, but all in all I have felt more peaceful and calm through this than I ever would have thought I would be in this kind of situation.  I know that we have been blessed and comforted through this far more than we even know. 

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. "     Proverbs 3:5-6 


And since I don't want to be totally boring, here's a picture of Ellie and Daddy on her post-MRI daddy/daughter date to Build-A-Bear.  We had to wait a couple of days until she was feeling up to it, but she was so excited for her first-ever trip there.  We're going to have to be so careful not to spoil this little cutie....

The new blogs are amazing Lara. I don't know how you do all that you do. I am in awe.

And I am so glad that you have been able to find peace and comfort during times like these.

I will keep Ellie in my prayers!

That is good news.

At times like this, it's when all the "theory" that we learn in gospel doctrine and RS classes become real life experiences.

You continue to be in my prayers.

Glad to hear things are looking positive. Ellie continues to be in our prayers.

And as a side note, I've been feeling the same way this year - no kid in a preschool group so no socializing with the other moms. Geesh, what will it be like when my kids are all grown up?! Then I'll have to find friends all on my own again.

I love the new header. Your other blog looks great too--very professional.

I still haven't found a ticket for Adam's baptism but I keep hoping I'll find something reasonable.

That is one brightly colored bear Ellie picked out :o)

I'm so glad to hear it! Please continue to keep us posted.

And who knew they made fairy wings for Build a Bears! She told me yesterday she wants to be a fairy for Halloween...Perhaps her bear will let her borrow them?
