I don’t know how to update without doing the blog thing. I don’t think Facebook is the best place.

Rhonda is responding to stimuli. People, tests-she is squeezing hands, making eye contact. She was in pain this morning which as gut wrenching it is to watch her, it was equally reassuring to see her awake and show feeling, give eye contact. They have put her back to sleep to keep her blood pressure down so there is not a rupture, which is fatal. Each minute is so critical. We all are just so frustrated at the time this is taking-as like I said, each minute is so important.

The doctor said she is in renal failure. Which I personally believe will be reversed. She had a 100. 9 fever that has lessened to 99 something just a bit ago. I have faith  God will continue to move mountains. Her passing every test and being responsive and awake is just such a beautiful miracle. I don’t use that word lightly.

Friends. You don’t understand  gravity and hope we have because of YOUR prayers. The continual answer to prayers. Our whole family will NEVER ever be able to appropriately show our gratitude. I want to cry knowing SO many of you are begging God in her behalf. This is the most devastating trial I have ever been through. Christian was so hard. So painfully hard. But he was not our mom, sister, wife, friend. We NEED her. She is the joy, love, continual godly example, and prayer warrior we all desperately need.

I am going to get personal here. Please pray:

That she would begin voiding urine.

That this surgery would be successful and she would recover perfectly and be restored

that her diagnosis of renal failure would be reversed.

That God will get her transported to the Stanford hospital ASAP. The surgeon is waiting for her. Apparently the surgeons phone died, which we know God’s hand was over that as well. Satan wants so badly for us to cower in fear and be anxious. We WILL NOT. God is so much bigger and we will continue to pray He will be glorified through this transaction.

Thank you forever for your loving prayers.

In his grip,

Michelle and family

    Praying for you in this unbelievable added challenge. These times test our faith in ways that are hard to fathom. I have had my share of crying out to Jesus these past few months and I am doing this for you, for Rhonda, for those closest to her, and extended family and friends. It is as though you have been given more than you can handle, but God’s word says He doesn’t do that. May you each dig down deep, to the very depths of His promises, trusting in His goodness and love for you all!
