ALS Rears It's Ugly Head

Many of you know already that my dear wife has been diagnosed with the affliction of ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). This is a nasty one, my friends, every bit as scary as cancer or the like.

The doctor who made the diagnosis has also asked that we get a second evaluation, which is scheduled for February 10. But, given the serious nature of the disease, we also are scheduling extensive sessions of Homeopathic (natural) medicine. There is no cure or even much aid for ALS with Allopathic (today's generally accepted) medical treatment.

We know the challenges ahead. We have a lot to learn. We no doubt have much more to bear. And, yes, we are scared. But we can also look to the promises of our gracious God and Savior, that he will never leave us or forsake us. And when he calls us home to heaven, we will be eternally happy and perfect.

Sola Deo Gloria!
