How we spent our Thursday.....

Well... we went to a new doctor today.... And I feel better. Stormii will need surgery to have her cysts removed. I hate that - BUT - We finally are headed in some direction. We aren't just sitting in limbo anymore waiting for what the next doctor might say. We aren't getting passed around waiting for someone who thinks he can handle it. Looks like around 6 weeks before they do it. Then, they said she'll probably need 3 or 4 days in the hospital, then around 6 weeks to recover completely. So... Since we took the day off to visit the doctor, and since we were at the medical center which is right by the zoo and the museums and things.... We decided to head over to the butterfly center at the museum. That was a blast... we had butterflies landing on us and surrounding us and everything.... Then... we went to the zoo. Walked around till they closed... We had a really good day. Thanks everybody for the prayers!

You know, I've always thought butterflies meant change. I was born on the Day of Metamorphosis and a butterfly example is what I was always given.

Curled up safe with God keeping you while you're a child.
Climbing from the cocoon and then finding it's hard work out there -- but God is still with you.
Learning to fly and exploring, God's there.

The whole process is change but the singlemost constant is God.

Keep that in mind - it's amazing you went to see butterflies. I hope that made the future visually stunning for you as well.

Prayers for you both and a speedy recovery for Stormii. I know she wants to get back to scrapbooking and she can maybe add some butterflies to her book.

I went extreme when I was younger and got a butterfly tattoo - it meant freedom to me - freedom to change and become "ME".

<3 to you both.
