Thursday, March 30 Our precious Tripp had a severe headache. Friday God sent us to visit Dr Dejong. Then God sent us on to Dr Dreisen where they discovered Tripp had swollen optic nerves in both eyes. Then God prompted through wise doctors an MRI which we had on Monday in Sioux Center. The results of this MRI changed our world- Tripp has (currently being removed) a tumor on his brain stem. Please pray that the doctors hands will be Gods hands- the ultimate Healer. Please pray for peace and patience for our family! Thank you for all the love and prayers already sent our way. Blessings! "His mercies are new every morning"
Update: we are overwhelmed at all of your unbelievable support. We have shed our tears and are thankful that maria and I are again able to be with our son. Nana and Papa have now been able to join us from Michigan. Tripp is responding positively to the tests and is resting peacefully. He will be really sore when he wakes up fully. We know that our God is bigger than we are able to understand and His hugs feel an awful lot like yours. We love you guys and are sure glad that you are right here with us on this wild journey. -Chad (Dad)
