We just checked in to the hotel. Rachel made the 4 1/2 hour drive just fine and we are thankful. It was very painful at first but God somehow lessened the pressure a little bit.
We listened to Travis Cottrell's cd "Found" most of the way. I loved hearing a voice singing from the back of the suburban every now and then. She was praising her Savior in the midst of her pain. Isn't that precious?!
I packed my alarm clock! Hallelujah! Last time Mr. Incredible set 4 alarms on his phone and in the middle of the night the phone died. Great! The 4 of us woke up with only 30 minutes before we were suppose to be at the doctor's office. How do you calmly say to your sleeping family, "Oh my goodness! Get up we have 30 minutes to get to the doctor's office!!!!!" It wasn't calm at all. We didn't need coffee...we woke up with a major jolt...and we got lost on the way. That was a fine moment. Thank you Dad for rescuing us and giving us directions to the hospital.
We have already made our trial run to the doctor's office from the hotel. We are hoping to avoid that kind of moment this time. I may stay awake all night! I'm sort of kidding.
Anyway, please pray for us tomorrow morning. We will meet the new doctor who will hopefully have answers to our many questions and wisdom from Above to best know how to treat Rachel.
I'll try to post when I have news. Thanks for loving us and joining us at the feet of Jesus!
