We found at 2:00 this afternoon that our appointment for the Mayo Clinic is tomorrow at 12:45! Yay! However, they would like me to do some blood work first, at 7 am! Oops. Its a 6 hour drive from here, so we will pack the car and leave tonight.
I don't have a lot of time to share with you today, all the wonderful blessings that continue to flow through my doors. But I had to share these day brighteners from my niece Madi! Thanks for the smiles, sunshine, these are beautiful!
At 2 pm I got the phone call about going to The Mayo Clinic. Admittedly, a flutter of panic set in. At 2:10 there was a knock at the door. Its my friend Susan. First she tells me through her own experience how wonderful The Mayo Clinic is and how I am really going to be okay. Then you know how they say the best things come in small packages? She leaves me with this and I take a poor picture of it. But Susan, has left me with a little box of Hope :)
Three weeks into this "fight," and God is still here showing up every day, of that I am convinced.
There is a large group of pretty amazing people that are all gathering tonight to talk about and make plans for... are you ready for this? The Vicky Westra Benefit Fund. Um, wow. I have to admit, 4 words I would never in a million years have strung together on my own. But that is the whole point, isn't it? I am so not alone in this. I continue to be in awe of the people stepping up, stepping forth, offering their time and talents. I am deeply amazed and humbled.
