MRI Date

I talked with Jack's neurosurgeon today and his next MRI is scheduled for October 31 and then follow up visit on November 1st. Can't say that Jack is too thrilled about the timing, but I will take him to the movies and the mall in Dallas while we are there to make up for the lack of Halloween fanfare. We weren't going to trick or treat anyway this year due to Halloween being on a church night, but we were going to participate in the trunk or treat that our church puts on in the parking lot on the 30th. People dress up and bring their vehicles and park them in a row. The kids from the church and community go from car to car rather than from house to house looking for a candy deposit in their bags. It is so much fun and the kids love being the ones to hand out the candy.

I might be calling on friends and family to trick or treat early with the kids before we go to Dallas so Jack gets a bit of candy to take with him. We'll see.

I was in Hebrews this morning and found this verse. Paul wrote these inspired words.

"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him."
But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.

Thanks to the Lord for this wonderful reminder to hold on to our confidence and to keep on keepin' on.

You know Trunk or Treat at church is on Tuesday night, right? What time is the MRI on Wednesday??

The MRI is at 8:30am on Wednesday, so we will have to head out the night before.

Bummer! I'm with Jack - no child should have to have an MRI at 8:30 on Halloween!

We live close and already have the candy. Just shout before you head our way!!

The year we moved to Abilene, we moved ON Halloween (I do NOT recommend doing that) which was also on a Wednesday that year. The Sunday night before we moved, the kids got dressed up and went "trick or treating" to about 5 different friends' houses. It was such a precious one-last-visit with several friends. Wonderful memories from being forced out of tradition! I hope you make some wonderful memories this week -- and I don't live THAT close, except to Mommers, but you are welcome to come (give me 60 minutes' notice unless you want Ramen Noodles for a treat! :-)

Tammy, thanks for visiting and posting at my blog a few days ago.

Wisdom, yes, we all can use daily doses. And, I'm praying for Jack.

Don't know if you have this recipe or not, but it's an easy one for families. Pizza Grills: Mozarella cheese, pepperoni, bread, butter and spaghetti sauce for dipping.

Load cheese and meat between bread slices, grill like a grilled cheese, cut into triangles and dip in sauce. They are good!!!
