We just need one more week of hyperbaric treatments and we will complete with the 40. We are on our way home this weekend and then we will go back to San Antonio again. Our raffle is on Saturday, August 2 and will be held 12:00 at B&J's pizza (the new shopping center CC,TX----Saratoga & Staples). We want to thank those of you who helped us through this. I pray blessings over you and your family. I also want to thank those of you who helped even when I called you last minute in a panic and you supported us by giving it your all!! I love you guys. I'm still waiting to see the final outcome. I hope and pray we get enough to at least make two more rounds. Today we have people selling the tickets that were not sold at Sam's Club and will be there from Noon-8:00pm.

Through all of this, the Lord has reveled many things to me. I have always seen the Lord's faithfulness throughout my life. However, even now more than ever believe it or not. I know he is the only one you can really keep your trust in.

Yesterday I felt such a huge burden in my heart. I don't know how to explain the feeling. As I was getting ready for a treatment, so many people came to mind (people I've met throughout different parts of the United States) and I just started to weep before the Lord. It was almost as if I felt the hurt, sadness, and desperation of all those people. I just prayed right there as I was doing my hair. I had a whole session with the Lord. The Lord showed me some things---it is not for me to share. I then began to think about how some people's priorities are so messed up. I don't even think they truly see it.

My heart breaks when I hear some of these people's stories. I have met so many amazing parents. Oh my Gosh. I watch these parents sit & wait outside of the chamber with such love in their eyes for their grandchild/child/wife. Parents travel from long distances just because they are not willing to give up or give into the medical diagnose. Such faith and hope. Some of these people are the most Godly people I have met in my entire life. It is so uplifting to hear their encouraging words or testimonies. Can you believe it---people who are facing the most in their life!!

Joshua has been showing progress. He has done a few things he has not done before and I know that after we add our physical, speech, and occupational therapy he is going to really show off for us. I am going to share some of the things he has done later, I promise. I am almost home and need to take care of some things first.
