Even When I Lose I Win

So right after I lost the Super Bowl bet and lost out on my date night opportunity at a Cavs game (instead, I must endure the play of Shaina's choosing), I ended up getting tickets from my buddy for the Cavs-Pacers game last night.

So Miss Chaia spent the evening with Nurse Kaitlyn, one of our PICU friends and Shaina and I joined our friends for dinner and a Cavs Win.

For what it's worth, Kyrie Irving is the real deal. I said that in the preseason and it is confirmed again watching him in person last night. He is quick, intelligent and unselfish...and he's 19. I'm 29 and I'm not any of those.

Anyways, after the game, we got news from the geneticist who originally diagnosed Chaia at the Cleveland Clinic and who has been in correspondence with the doctor in Germany that Chaia indeed has a certain mutated gene that lends itself to GACI. So we continue the course we're on.

No surprise there.

For us...or for God. I've said this before, but it is important for us to remember that God has not been befuddled by this genetic mutation. He is not despairing at a heavenly oversight in creation. He knows. He cares. And He is at work.

Maybe that's what we all need to realize today. In the midst of the pain, busyness, chaos, frustration, joy, love, relationship, suffering, heartache, hope, crisis, _______________, etc.

He Knows. He cares. And He is at work.

And that matters.

So what play would Shania like to go to?

So now God can get all the glory for Chaia's healing. There will be a "BUT GOD" in this story and we won't stop bombarding heaven until the answer comes. Praying always.
