Today's news

Didn't get a lot of time with Maddie yesterday.  I regretted it but it was unavoidable.  She's still on the mend though - no worries.

  Yesterday I had an early morning appointment at the dentist followed by meetings, church work, staff lunch, preparing for Fusion, Fusion, staying to talk with a few people who needed me, then going home to work on a NextJob project.  My extent of dealing with Maddie yesterday was sitting by her for a little while after evening service, petting her while I worked.  Larry and the kids took care of her but she was mostly cage resting.  Like I said, I hate it and want today to be different.

We had a great night at Fusion last night, and I taught on "This Means War 4:  Fighting for Your Family".  This is a five week series I'm going and it's been one of my favs.

This is going to be one of our most insanely busy weekends EVER at church and it won't stop til Tuesday.  We have youth convention Fri-Sat, the first workday for our launch on Saturday, church and the Thanksgiving dinner Sunday, and then decorating for Christmas Monday. I'm tired just thinking about it but it's all going to be good. 

Everyone asks about Maddie so I just want everyone to know she is healing well externally and get her stitches out Friday.  As far as her spine, she's getting a tremendous amount of  rest which is the main prescription.  She's still on steroids and pain pills.   Her legs appear to be stronger but we can't allow her to stand and walk or put any pressure on them.  Thank you for your continued prayers.  About 3 weeks to go until we see if she can have mobility.

All of this is for a season. Just tackle one issue at a time. That is all we can do! I'm also praying for you. May God grant you strength! Much love to you!

Deanna, maybe this is a stupid question...but is there dog physical therapy where they can do exercises or teach you to help strengthen the injured area?
