Monday's The Big Day
Got a call from the Cleveland Clinic today. Monday at 10 a.m. is when Chaia has the CT scan done to find out if the treatment to reverse the calcifications is doing anything or not. Ultimately, I don't know that much changes in way of treatment/prognosis, other than that if they find that it is working, then we can hope for continued stabilized heart function, or maybe even improving heart function. Perhaps too, heart transplant candidacy could be a more viable option if she improves. We aren't there yet. But oddly, I feel very little anticipation or build up to this test. We've been waiting over 5 months to find out if the treatment is working. And yet, I have a strange peace and almost an apathy toward the testing. Maybe it is because Chaia has made such positive strides. Maybe it is because we know that the outlook has been bleak for so long. All I can say for certain is that we continue to move forward with stewarding Chaia to God. And calcifications or no calcifications, our calling does not change. Your calling is the same as ours in that regard. Everything God gives you, from children, to wealth, to the breath you just took is all to be leveraged back to Him in worship. So enjoy God today. Be attentive to the things He has given you today rather than the things you feel you lack. He is more than enough. More than able. And in Him we are More than conquerors.
