the plan.

Tomorrow we leave for Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.

We will see three specialist:  An Endocrinologist, a Pediatric Neurosurgeon and an Eye Dr. [the pituitary gland is near the optic nerve].

How is Dawson?

He is great.  He is 100% when the hormone is working.  Ideally, it works for 24 hours.  Everyday has been a bit different with that.  Yesterday, it lasted 22 hours and when it wears off you can tell almost immediately [that is how it came on too - we can almost nail the day down].  Today it was not working so we have doubled it. :(

Thank you for praying.  The love poured out on us has been humbling and precious to us.  Every fb comment, email, msg, phone call and text means so much. 

Friends are setting alarms to pray through out the day and adding Dawson to prayer chains all around the world.  thank you.

Tuesday, tomorrow, we are setting aside the day to fast and pray specifically.  

We would love to pray for you too.  

There are so many people struggling through different trials along side of us.

How can we pray for you?  

As we drive (6 hours) we will pray. 

If you want to join us, here are our specifics:

*All glory to God as we go.
*that there would be NO adenoma… no macro, mini or any size - any.where!
*healing.  Let's just skip past all of it and just have a whole healing, amen?  Let's ask!
*safe travels.
*that we would love and encourage those we encounter.   [when we adopted lil D, we stayed in a hotel within the famous Mayo Clinic campus.  everyday, all day, there were hurting, sick people in the lobby and restaurant.  you should have seen their faces when we would share our itty bitty treasure.  the old ladies lit up with joy. :)]
*peace.  we know the source… pray we stay tapped in.
*kiddos at home and friends that are caring for them
*Dawson's heart.  he hates needles.  he really does.  he had to give more blood Saturday and he just hates it.  who can blame him?    



  1. love you all. thought about you [and prayed!] so much this weekend.

    isaiah 58:8
    then your light will break out like the dawn, and your healing will spring forth before you. your righteousness will go before you; the glory of the Lord will be your right guard.

  2. Will continue to pray here in Georgia:) it's raining here and I pray God sends healing rains on Dawson!

  3. Love you so much, we are praying praying praying!! And anything we can do to help, just ask!!

  4. Here is my list of things you can pray for me about.....ready? Number 1 (just kidding) yes, I will go on on your fast with you guys. The Lord just wants to show off His glory again and I can't wait to see it come to fruician....Love to you sister!

  5. Will join you in prayers and fasting for sweet Dawson and ALL the specifics you asked for. God is good!!!!

  6. Praying for you guys! Lucille Packard Children's Hospital is great!


  8. We are praying right down that list! Isn't it amazing that when things are tough, we not only are compelled to pray for our own situation, but for others as well?

    I admit...I can be SO LAZY when it comes to prayer. Specially when things all seem A-OK.

    So we are praying right along with you. And I love that you are praying for us too. We are praying battle prayers...prayers for Dawson, prayers for our Little One, and reminding our Mighty God that no weapon formed against us will prosper.

    Praying for peace to guard our hearts and minds too. When peace is not on guard, then worry sets in. OUR plans start forming, rather than waiting on the Lord. He is good, and He REALLY does work for the good of those who love Him.

    Love you my friend!

    1. Shawna, You are on mind constantly. THere is much motivation when hearts are heavy, to pray for other heavy hearts. We love you guys so much. Please tell your mama that I got her message and thank her please. xoxo Talk to you soon.

  9. We are praying, with much hope and faith. All things are possible. All is by definition everything, not missing anything; wholeness. I wish this silly note could convey more than words. But paint a picture of great peace and absolute stillness within this storm of unknowns. No doubt of the great power of our God. Amen, and much love family. Mark and Erin Z.

  10. We are praying for you and your family and believing for a complete healing. We serve a big God that is capable of big things!


Love to hear from you!
