It has been far too long since I have been on here and sort of left things hanging.
I need to catch up quickly because it is a really big day but I do not want to forget what God has done.
Because this crazy family...
IS GOING TO MEXICO!!!!!!!
Our trailer is packed to the brim with goodies for some pretty special orphans and we can hardly wait to go and give them some kisses!
That is just how good God is,
He made a way where there seemed to be no way.
Late last week this little girly proved the doctors wrong....
and all her tests came back NORMAL!
My head is still spinning,
they had told us to be ready for a quick admit and surgery,
she had all the symptoms and they were pretty darned sure that Pheochromocytoma was what she had.
Not even close.
But guess just how good God is?????
Not only did her tests come back normal but I think we are on to what the source of her 'episodes' for the last 3 years have been.
Low blood sugar.
My friend Joyce kept mentioning that Georgia's symptoms sounded like her daughter's when she had hypoglycemia...
and being the amazing friend that she is, she brought me over her daughter's glucometer :)
the next morning I tested Georgia and she was super low.
The normal range for children is 70-100.
Georgia wakes up in the morning at about 50,
and has a hard time getting much above 70.
Low and behold, when she gets pale and fatigued...her numbers have dropped!
She has not had any sweating spells to test yet so we don't know what her numbers are during those.
Our doctor checked her out and said she is stable to go to Mexico as long as we keep her fairly calm and resting and feed her often. We will meet with an Endocrinologist when we get back to figure out WHY her sugars are so low.
BUT WE ARE GOING TO MEXICO!!!!!!!
I feel so overwhelmed by God's goodness.
It has been a long very difficult year and we are weary.
I don't know why but Mexico and the orphanage feel more like home than anywhere else on this planet and it feels like the biggest gift ever to get to go back and love those precious children, scrub toilets, stand in the dusty road hand out milk and peanut butter to hungry children, worship in Spanish with the staff...all of it....a total treat.
I feel like a kid in a candy shop that we get to go.
I promise to write more from the road but right now I've got a little more packing to do!
Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
