I will start out by getting all of my own problems out of the way.
I have some skin fungus disease on my nose. It is not really a disease probably, but the bottom of my nose has all this peely, flakey skin on it. Yep. Weird.
Today I think I have the worst headache of my life. Sinuses are exploding, and every time I make any significant movement the right side of my head explodes. I have been lying on the couch all day.
State Wrestling is almost over. Our school is the best.
Now, I will talk about all the things that are actually important.
Mikayla has bone cancer. I still can't really comprehend that statement. I do, and I don't at the same time. She is at the hospital in Iowa City. She just had surgery to get a sample of the bone marrow, the mass, and to put in a central line. She probably starts chemo next week.
It feels really weird. On one hand, I feel completely brokenhearted and strung out. It's like I am praying in short, gasping breaths because my heart is falling to pieces. On the other hand, I am trying so hard to be strong, especailly for Andrew. I want to be brave. I know that our God is so much bigger than this, and I believe that He can heal her. I am trying not to be afraid. But I am coming unglued. And so I am the strong one and the weak one at the same time. I am both fearful and trusting. But I think it is okay.
And you never feel good or bad, only strange and unprepared...
Pray. She can be healed. I am believing that she can be healed.
