WHAT'S UP WITH MOM?
My mom is doing much better. Here's pretty much the full scoop on what Mom went through:
During the first weekend of
April, Mom was stricken with horrible abdominal pains. She was sick. Mom was admitted to the hospital Palm Sunday, April 5 and wasn’t released until
8 (Taylor’s birthday). Mom was released without a
diagnosis, and was labeled by the doctors as a "mystery
Then Thursday before the concert
at our home church, St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, Mom was once again
admitted to the hospital. They did a colonoscopy on Friday, put Mom on a high dosage of prednisone, and she
was out on Saturday. Praise God, Mom was well enough to perform with us April 26
at our home church.
The doctors now think Mom has Clostridium difficile infection (a
reaction from a antibiotic).
We thank everyone who has helped,
visited, prayed for, and encouraged us during this difficult time. The support
we received has overwhelmed us (in a good way!). THANK YOU!

2nd Great Adventure Ministry Update
Our concert schedule is growing and the Lord keeps opening up new doors and opportunities for us to minister through music. We have three concert possibilities in 2010 already! I know to many family groups this would be nothing, but to me...wow! It is very humbling to see how God chooses to use our family! We have had some fun concerts this July, but we are glad to have a two week break, especially since my dad injured his hand badly (he needed thirteen stitches in all!) this week. We are looking forward to experiencing our first bluegrass festival this August up in Itasca, Minnesota. To learn more about our family band, visit our website (which I hope to finish redesigning this summer): http://www.greatadventurefamily.com/.
Well, I had better be moving on. Enjoy your summer!
Blessings and Joy in the Journey!
P.S. I'll tell more about the book I am writing later!
