"When the worst happens—whether war or flood or disease or famine—and we take our place before this Temple (we know you are personally present in this place!) and pray out our pain and trouble, we know that you will listen and give victory.

And now they've come to kick us out of the country you gave us. O dear God, won't you take care of them? We're helpless before this vandal horde ready to attack us. We don't know what to do; we're looking to you."

God's word came:

Don't be afraid; don't pay any mind to this vandal horde. This is God's war, not yours. You won't have to lift a hand in this battle; just stand firm, Judah and Jerusalem, and watch God's saving work for you take shape.

"Don't be afraid, don't waver. March out boldly tomorrow—God is with you."
~2 chron 20:9-17

please pray for us today. we feel like we are facing a formidable army.

at 3:30pm, we have an appointment at children's hospital with the doctor who indicated she would be willing to work with DR H in treating parker for the mycoplasma infection. obviously since then, parker's diagnosis and treatment plan have widened to include lyme and babesia.
i had an appointment with DR H last week. he has emailed his treatment recommendations for all 3 infections to this doctor at children's hospital. we are hoping and praying that this doctor will be willing to prescribe the necessary treatment and provide hands on support.
we fear that once again, we will find the battle lines have been drawn and the lyme war that wages within the medical community will prevent us from receiving at least some of parker's treatment here in canada.

we have no "strategy" for today.
we feel like we are being called to boldly yet simply just ask for help

in asking for her help, we will keep in mind, that no matter the outcome, our help comes from God.

sure, the fact that parker can WALK (or march) into that appointment today is pretty radical proof that he is responding to treatment but we know that there is no medical literature, no evidence and no argument- no matter how profoundly convincing that we could present that will change or move this doctor - it is God and only God that can change the heart of a person.

and no matter the outcome, He is sovereign over it. the war is not ours, but His.

our hope, our faith, our victory is not contingent on this doctor's prescription pad.

"Give thanks to God
His love never quits."

I bookmarked your blog several weeks ago, and have been reading and "catching up" ever since. I just want to say that I am praying for Parker and your whole family. We live in Texas, and both of our kids have Lyme. We have a pretty good idea of what yall are going through. It's been since '07 that our son has been sick and since March '09 that our daughter has been sick. She is actually worse than our son - bedridden. The doctors are INFURIATING. I'm really tired of hearing "There is no lyme in Texas!" Anyway, just wanted to tell you we feel for you and will be praying.
