another week

after a good weekend, a new week starts. after our appointment with the surgeon last week, we are unsure whether we should proceed with the surgery, but we are leaning towards not. there are very serious risks with limited expectation for improvement.

please pray for wisdom for this as we continue to pray and think about the surgery, as well as some upcoming and needed changes to ian's therapy routine.

"Death's black extinguisher must soon put out thy candle. Oh! how sweet to have sunlight when the candle is gone! The dark flood must soon roll between thee and all thou hast; then wed thine heart to him who will never leave thee; trust thyself with him who will go with thee through the black and surging current of death's stream, and who will land thee safely on the celestial shore, and make thee sit with him in heavenly places for ever."

Thinking of you both as I sing this today:

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord (repeat)

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer

You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint You won't grow weary

You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles
