Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27

He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.

Ephesians 1:5-6

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

Isaiah 1:17

Nina Update and More

Well Nina has her big appointment we were waiting for. They went over all of her tests, scans, blood work, video, every possible thing you can think of. So she has surgery November 12th. Her first surgery will be to put little sensor things under her skull to detect FOR SURE which tumers are causing the seizures. IF you look at her EEG from her hospital stay-there will be times when the EEG doesn't pick up some of the seizures that you can clearly see she is having, so the ones under the skull will guarantee where they are coming from so they are sure they are taking the right tumors out. Then the following week they will remove the tumors that need to be removed. We will need so much prayer at that time. Not only will she be having brain surgery, which is big, we will have very little time to decide which ones we should remove based on how close they are to certain areas of her brain that could effect her daily life, which we wont know till they are in there and see what they are looking at. WE have a general idea now, but wont really know till we are there.
Sooooo...that is that. I am excited that we will be starting Speech Therapy with her this Monday because I know that sweet girl wants to speak so much more than we can understand! And after a hearing test we learned that she may have mild hearing loss. We are not too concerned about that since we know she seems to be hearing us fine.
This girl is a FIGHTER! A sweet fighter guised by her sweet smile and contagious giggle! And even more than all of that-Her Heavenly Father loves her more than Gold! I can not WAIT to see what He has in store for her!
