Moving Mountains

“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart
but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” Mark 11:23

Thank you for standing with me and having the kind of faith that moves mountains.
You WILL NOT believe the mountains that have moved over the last 5 days. Yes you will, because you’re expecting it. But still!
God is hearing. And he is answering. He goes before us and is working out even the smallest details.

1. Remember how I told you Thursday that we were praying I could get into Mayo Clinic ASAP? Well, I got a call Thursday afternoon and found out that one of the top neurologists in the country could see me today. The wait to see her is usually at least 6 months, but a friend (who is a surgeon at Mayo) called another friend who works in the neurology area and made it happen. Mountain moved.

2. A girlfriend who does research at Mayo called a friend who happens to be one of the top neurosurgeons in the country (notice a theme?) and asked him to look over my files as a favor. There’s an extremely long list to see him too, but he immediately said he’d take me on as a patient. He also “just happened” to be on his way home from the airport after a trip to Europe when she called and would be available to meet me today. (He’s Brazilian. They stick together. I knew marrying Anderson was a great idea!) Every time we mention him to someone in the Mayo circle they are shocked that he is now my doctor. They all say things like, “Do you know who he is?” Yep! Mountain moved.

3. After both doctors looked at my scans today they gave us a confident diagnosis. It’s not definite, but I feel like we got closer to some answers in 1 hour today than we’ve gotten in the last 5 months. My former doctor had an almost defeated, “Well, I just don’t know what this is” attitude. (I’m sure she’s amazing, but for some reason I stumped her!) And dealing with her office staff was a nightmare. But the two doctors I saw today were confident and made me feel like we WILL get to the bottom of this. It’s no small miracle that I am now in their care, and I am so grateful for the people who cared enough to help me get in. Mountain moved.

I want to share more with you about the diagnosis but feel like we need to be 100% sure first… or at least 97%. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I will say that it’s still scary. It’s positive in some respects but will give a whole new meaning to “walking by faith.” I’ll see my new doctor again after he reviews one more scan (the one I most recently had) and am confident we will know more then. In the meantime, thank you for all the calls, texts, messages and hugs. And thank you for sharing God’s Word with us. Know that every time God puts something on your heart and you share it with us, it is EXACTLY what we need to hear at THAT TIME. We’re thankful for friends who love us enough to walk through crap with us. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. ??????? yes. BUT it is only those who are prepared that can see and caizlatpie the chance given. The people who always blames god/?/? that there is no chance is absolutely wrong! If they haven’t prepared, work hard or think hard, how can they see the chance themselves, even if they see the opportunity is right in front of them, they wont have the skills, connection, knowledge or experience to take advantage of it.How sad!!!Bomb
