Thank you for praying for us yesterday. Rachel's MRI went very well. God has blessed each visit to the hospital with wonderful, very caring, nurses and physicians. They were certainly very thorough as they used both MRI machines to focus on her neck area and her head and the procedure lasted nearly 2 hours. My husband and I were able to stay with her. We held hands and prayed for Rachel the entire time.
We still don't know anything yet, but we are hoping to hear something today. We had to double up on her pain medicine last night. I think it was one of the worst headaches that she has had. MRI's are extremely loud and a a bit scary, so perhaps that is what brought on such terrible pain. Her daddy slept on the couch last night so that she could stay next to me all night. I think that helped all of us get a little bit more sleep.
With my prayers for my precious daughter, I am asking God to guard our minds too. The evil one would certainly like for us to jump off the deep end and start playing the "what if..." game. Instead, I am asking God to guard our hearts and minds. We take great comfort in knowing He is over it all and He loves Rachel even more than we do...which seems incomprehensible to me...but I know it to be true.
On the way to the hospital yesterday, I was telling her about all of you who are so graciously praying for her. We so appreciate your generosity in prayer...more than I can explain.
