Our Menu Board


DSC_2117This week was the first time I was able to erase my Menu board. This was our menu the week of January 10th. It was just a reminder to me of what our week was like before, and it was hard to erase (just like it was hard for me to flip my house calendar from January to April).

I remember sitting in the doctor’s office that Friday. We were waiting and waiting on our doctor to hear back from another doctor, I didn’t know it was from St. Jude. I knew Noah had been diagnosed with Strep and the Flu earlier, and I figured something else like Mono or some temporary virus would be his diagnosis. I remember calling Tim after being there for almost 4 hours, and I told him the appointment was lasting longer than I thought, so instead of making pizza that night, we would just pick one up. But that never happened. A few hours later, we were heading to Memphis.

Just like erasing the Menu board or flipping the calendar, it is hard to look at “before” pictures. Pictures of a sweet little baby, or even from Christmas, knowing that I didn’t know then, but in just a few weeks my life would totally be different. But, I am so thankful for God’s blessing to us in the midst of this. He has taught me so much through this suffering, and even through the midst of it, He continues to bless us.
