Feeling Good!

Sorry it’s been a while since I posted.  It was such a treat to have my parents here for the weekend, but I felt awful the whole time, unless sitting in this one position, which I did for hours just to hang out with them.  My mom helped around the house a lot, and being the Lepper family that we are, we played a lot of games!  I wish they lived closer as I’m sure they do too!  

I guess on Tuesday I started feeling better, I guess the medicine started kicking in like it’s supposed to.  I did not have much pain all week – Praise the Lord!!!  I think the mattress helped and of course the drugs. 

Janelle and Athailia stayed for the week and boy was Janelle a busy one.  She even cooked a turkey (you know the one that’s been in the freezer for who knows how long!).  It was and still is fun to have turkey sandwiches – in fact I had one for lunch today!  However, I think we’ll be eating them for a while.  

There have been many blessings for us this week.  Meals were all delicious, mom did my laundry, I haven’t had much pain, ideas were talked about as to how to help us raise some money for when we need it, amazing stories of how God is working to bring people along side of us to help in so many ways.  I am blown away by the support from my school, my community and my church!  

On a totally different note, tonight I sit here trying not to think about what is coming tomorrow.  I have a Ct scan and am terrified to get the results!  I trust that God is working, but in what way I don’t know.  If the scan shows good progress we’ll continue, but if it’s growing, this was kind of the last resort.  I don’t know if there is anything else that they can do for me.  That thought sends my body into convulsing tears!  It’s so easy to see the bad and prepare for the worst; I don’t know if I know how to prepare for the best. I know that I am covered in prayer, and I know that God has a plan for my life.  The fleshly side of me is scared as the spiritual side of me is clinging onto hope and trust in a Savior who performs miracles!  Please pray as I try to wrap my head around this and will have to wait a few days for the results.  

Pray for Kai as we are going to take him to the doctor for pain in his pee pee.  He’s been a lot of fun, but is really starting to test the limits of what he can get away with. 

My mother-in-law, Martha, is coming again on Tuesday until the weekend and then Jess will join her.  Rico’s, Sol’s brother, band will be touring L.A. Tuesday and Wednesday.  if you want more information on that you can go to:  http://pictureatlantic.com/.  

Thanks for always checking in on us.  Many of you let me know it’d been a while…I appreciate your concern and gentle reminders!  🙂

Peace,

Monica
