I'm not going to lie. Today is hard. Hours on the phone with insurance has brought me the same answer: "we'll let you know."
Through tears, I explain again how my baby has already lost one eye to this cancer. I explain how in 6 weeks he developed 3 tumors, and now only 3 weeks later he has 3 more. I explain how we are here, in New York, and I started this battle last week when I was in California. I explain how, yes, legally, they may have time to make a decision but my baby may not have that time.
One woman I spoke with was so very kind, and appropriately named Hope....she fought for us to get a supervisor, and came back almost in tears herself to tell me they would not speak with me.
I know how frustrating and infuriating it is...but I'm writing to say that I need help. I need back up and encouragement. My heart is hurting today for my baby boy and for my kids at home without me.
So. Here's what I am suggesting. Right now, keep praying for Elijah-that he would get exactly what he needs.
Pray for us to endure *patiently* and faithfully.
Pray for the Spirit of God to be near and the Word of Christ to dwell in us richly.
And. If you have a favorite verse, will you post it in the Facebook comments?
We believe that God's Word is alive and active. It is powerful for casting down strongholds. It is a strong tower, a refuge in times of trouble.
Help us to wait on the Lord well. I may not be able to read them all right away, but please know that every comment, every prayer, every thought on our family's behalf is cherished. We love all those who have partnered with us and we need you. Thank you.
I read this today and found it beautiful. Here's to producing MUCH fruit y'all:
