God has opened to door for us to take Rachel to a doctor in Minnesota. We are in awe at all that has happened to make this possible. We do not know what we will find out there - or if there will be answers or not; but we feel very clearly that it is His will for us to proceed in this direction.
Please be in prayer for Rachel as she makes the 10 hour trip that God would strengthen her. The movement in a car is very difficult for her. We are trusting that God will her body the strength to make the trip.
It was supposed to be that I would be taking Rachel by myself. God has worked it out that Rob will be able to go. I am so very thankful for that. It will be wonderful having him there with me and another person with me if Rachel gets sick on the way.
God has allowed for all the other kids to have places to stay while we are gone. A detail that was worked out in a matter of minutes. (Not a small feat when you have five kids!)
We also are seeking another opinion from a neurologist here in the area. It appears that God has allowed us to find a Christian neurologist. Rachel's pediatrician will be speaking with him on Thursday. We are praying for God to work accordingly in this situation; and for us to be able to get an appointment with him either Friday or sometime the first part of next week.
Thanks so much for your prayers for us. They mean so much. The cards and gifts have been such an encouragement to us during this time. How great our God!
