The Latest

I have a WHOLE LOT to report on some happenings at St Patrick's, all good stuff. But for now I am focused on my daughter's health and I covet your prayers.
The results of her bronco scope biopsy were mixed. They have eliminated cancer from the equation, thanks be to God. But the rest was inconclusive.
So this coming Tuesday she will undergo surgery for an open lung biopsy. This should allow the proper amount of tissue to be gathered so we can get it analyzed and get closer to figuring this mess out. She continues to be strong, but is in much pain and discomfort.
Thanks for your support and prayers.

Health saga continues

I reported on here a while back about my daughter's strange health issues this summer. They are not resolved. It's a long, long story, but we have now had her admitted to the University Medical Center in Jackson, mainly for some advanced testing and to get the various specialists in the same room (like that is REALLY going to happen), or at least in the same vicinity, so we can figure this out.
So far no diagnosis, other than everyone agrees "something is wrong" and "we need to figure it out". Leading candidates are pulmonary or rheumatilogical problems (I know I made at least one of those words up). I was there yesterday until late, it's a 3 hour drive one way, came home by 1 this morning so could get my son to school and various activities today. My wife is staying in the hospital with Mackenzie, and I will return on Wednesday.
Please keep her in your prayers.

Preachin' - A Time to Cry

As followup to the post below on the Katrina anniversary, you can hear my sermon from that night by clicking HERE.
I have a lot of friends who post sermons on their blogs, but I prefer to link folks to the audio versions, as I rarely follow a text you could post anyway. Check em out if you are so inclined.....
