Thanks for joining us as we pray and lift up our husband, father, step-father, granddad, friend, John John!! John has been dealing with pain in his back area which we thought to be related to his hip. He had finally decided that it was time to get that much needed hip replacement. In a move to ensure the rest of his body was good to go, he had a battery of tests and scans performed on February 14th. The next day, he received a phone call that something had shown up on his scans. Unfortunately, it appears that John has a rather large mass on his lung. Here is our schedule for this week so that we can find out what that mass really means...We plan to show that mass who is BOSS!!!
Tomorrow; Feb 21st, he will undergo an endoscopy and additional bloodwork Wednesday, Feb 22nd: Bronchoscopy Friday, Feb 24th he will have a bone scan.
We'll know a lot more after these tests but in the meantime....we know that the only thing we can count on is our faith in Jesus Christ and his promises in his word. We are so grateful for you and your encouragement has meant everything to John and my Mom.
John 16:33 tells us "On Earth, you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart because I have OVERCOME THE WORLD"
We believe this with all that we have in us. We are asking God to heal our John John completely and we are going to look for all of the blessings that we can find in this journey because God promises he will make all things work together for good...so even though this isn't exactly what John John had in mind for 2017...we feel certain that God will be faithful!
