I love this picture,it's perfect! Painting by Greg Olsen
When we found out about the Cleveland Clinic (thanks "C"), I knew I had to get Cole there. I knew they could help him or at least give us more answers and if they couldn't I would have been satisfied knowing that Cole saw the best drs. I told "A" that I was "going to get Cole their and I didn't care what it took". He laughed because he knows when I put my mind to something, NOTHING will stand in my way...and said "ok". We prayed about it and felt like this was what we needed to do. We got everything worked out and ready to go in 1 week!
We had an amazing and overwhelming amount of support and we thank each of you for your prayers and donations. I'm am shocked at the generosity of friends, family and stangers...who I pray will be blessed for what they have done for us. We've had 1,600 people look at our blog this week...from the US, Belgium, Canada, Singapore, Mexico, Belize, Germany, Vietnam, Columbia, United Kingdom, Czech Republic and Netherlands...what a blessing it was for us to see the Love and Support! We truly felt each prayer from everyone. We felt the Lord leading us and watching out for us every step of the way.
There was a few things that were significant to us that I wanted to post...Cole's favorite toy stopped working and needed new batteries. I sent "A" to the gift shop to get some. It was closed..."A" saw a maintainence worker and asked him where he could find batteries. The guy appologized and said everything was closed. "A" thanked him and started walking away. The guy called out to "A" and asked him what kind of batteries he needed, he pulled to BRAND NEW double A batteries from his pocket. It was like an angel placed them there!
The second was in the morning. "A" asked me what I wanted for breakfast, I told him a big croissant and 5 peices of pinapple would be nice. He came back and said "you'll never believe it, but that was the LAST croissant & there was ONLY 5 peices of pinapple left!" These are small things, but they are significant to us...we truly felt that we were being blessed in everyway. The Lord held our hand and he answered your prayers and we thank you!
And of course, last but not least, we did get an answer as to why Cole has seizures! It wasn't something a parent wants to hear. It was good to get an answer, but to hear that practically half of his brain is malformed breaks my heart and makes me ill thinking about it. I look at him and wonder how this could have happend, how this perfect little boy could have a malformed brain. I don't think it's something we will be able to fully understand and comprehend in this life. We don't know what is going to happen...but all we know is that the Lord isn't going to leave us now. He has sent wonderful people to support us during this trail.
