Thank you God, for answered prayers!

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1Thessalonians 5: 16-18

Hayley and I were up very early this morning and she was the first appointment of the day at Theda Oaks surgery center. Mike had had a couple of gastrointestinal procedures there and I have had one. They have always been super kind and efficient. Things were no different today. The whole staff was so great with Hayley.
Once she was hooked up to the IV and the nurses answered all her questions, they wheeled her back. Less than 30 minutes later I was by her side waiting for her to wake up. Dr Dar found a hiatal hernia and showed us pictures of gastritis and esophagitis. She said she rarely sees this in someone Hayley's age but if she takes the medicine prescribed and modifies her diet she will be able to avoid surgery later on in life. This was a definite answer to our prayers. They want to see her back in one month to see how she is doing. Thank you God, for answered prayers.

The Lord Reigns - In God we Trust!

Just wanted to say "hi". I'm Cheryl's friend from high school and we will be scrapping together at Disney next year. I love your blog. I feel like I almost know you. I am very thankful that things went well with your daughter's endoscopy and that they have an answer for her stomach problems. I look forward to meeting you in person and getting to know you. God bless!

I didn't know Hayley was having such severe stomach problems. Poor kid - that's tuff at her age. I pray that the treatment and medical plan for the future all gives her relief and leaves her pain free.

Love to you and your family.
