NOT GOOD RESULTS..."BUT GOD"

The radiologist report is in from Witt's MRI and its not good. Dr. Macicek came by late last night and told Melanie the list of several abnormalities in Witt's brain. However, even Dr. Macicek could not tell us what it all meant. The neurologist should come by sometime today with much more information. Honestly, it doesn't sound good. We don't know for sure the effect this will have on the transplant possibility but it seems like this would prevent him from being a candidate. If there is anything God has taught me from Witt's life it is "but God"!!!!! I don't know what "but God" completely means in this case at all but what it always means is that God has the final say. Oh, there is such peace in the midst of agonizing pain because I know "but God". I know that Witt's life will be everything that God has deemed it to be...I know that Witt's life will be the exact number of breaths that God has counted even before Witt was born. When I came into Witt's room this morning "A Simple Prayer" was playing. One of the lines says: "When men look at me I want them to see the Light of the World in me." When I look at Witt I see God...I see God's infinite love...I see the Light of the World!

We will continue to lift Witt and your family up in our prayers as the answers are not always the ones we want to hear or ones that make your decisions harder. May God continue to be with you each step of the way! Your love for the Lord is such a wonderful thing to see right now when most people tend to question their faith! You are such a wonderful example for others and for Witt to know of our Holy Father.

...but our God is a God who is so much more than our present circumstances! Our God is a God who controls and numbers every breath we take, every fine hair on our heads, and even the seconds we get to be with those we love. Our God is revealing Himself so agonizingly yet beautifully through your entire family, Mel. I love you so much and my heart hurts for the unimaginable decisions you've had to make over the past year. You are such a strong mommy with an incredible husband and even more incredible baby boy! You are such an example for me to follow. You are all constantly in my prayers.

I just can't get Witt, Mel, Austan, and your entire precious family off of my mind. I am in constant conversation with the Lord ... asking for peace, guidance, and an unwavering faith for Mel and Austan.

BUT GOD is right! You all amaze me! Witt is such a strong, precious, little one.

Love you all!
