We wait...again...

Psalm 33:20
20 We wait in hope for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.

Lura stayed overnight with Dad last night. She said he was anxious this morning in anticipation of having the biopsy done. We do not yet know when they will do the surgery to place the rod into his femur and I think that's weighing on his mind, too.

This morning, after performing a biopsy of the large tumor in Dad's hip, they took him to have his Skeletal Scan done. They did 25 x-rays.

Dad is resting comfortably in his room now. Mom packed a bag so that she can stay with him tonight, tomorrow...

The pathology report on the biopsy of the tumor will take 2-4 days. So again, we wait...

Unless something else comes up, I won't post again 'till we know more.

Thank you all so much for taking the time to read my updates, for your calls of encouragement, for offering to do my laundry, feed Mom's cat, take my boys, etc... Thank you for your emails and comments on the blog. I'm printing all of the emails and comments to keep in a folder for Dad. Someday, he'll love reading through them. Please keep praying...especially for Dad's comfort and for peace for him.


  1. Such a great idea to keep us informed so we can pray for you all.

    Psalm 9:10 For those who know your name will trust in you, for you LORD, have NEVER forsaken those who seek you.

  2. Hi Andrea so glad you are keeping us updated. We are all still praying, praying, praying...Everytime I read your blogs tears come to my eyes and I have to keep from crying. We love your family so much and hate to see anyone going through such hard times, but I know God is good and has a plan-so thankful for that! We will continue to pray for God's peace.

  3. Waiting can be so hard, even when you know HE is the one with the answers. Holding you close in our hearts and before the you dearly. Sounds trite to say His ways are higher than ours, when I know you know this and it's true...doesn't always make now easier. Please let us know if there is anything we can do, and thank you for keeping us posted.

  4. We are all thinking of you guys. Thanks for taking the time to update the blog. I know it takes time for answers so this blog helps keep us updated and not bug you. You all need to be together and strong for your Dad. I will continue to pray for him as he did for me :) Love you guys!

  5. 'Have you not known? or have you not heard? The everlasting God, The Lord, The creator of the ends of the earth. Never faints or is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might, He increases strength, Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall utterly fall. But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not be faint.
    Isaiah 40:28-31

    He knows our worries and our waiting.
    love you guys
