In Case You're Wondering....

We are alive.  Lots has happened in the Cook house in the last 2 months.  It has been a heart-wrenching time in my life that I am still not ready to talk about in detail.  But I wanted to share some news with those of you who do care.  We are moving back to Reform, Alabama.  Those that have followed me for some time remember that we were living in that area when John unexpectedly lost his job in the spring of '09 and we moved to New York.  We are headed back the end of this month.  I will share more in time but for now this is our update.
Also, Brady will be having surgery on Thursday.  It is a tonsillectomy but they have "prepared" us that he is a slightly high risk for pulmonary edema because of a few issues.  A friend of mine's mom was out here this week.  She is a surgical nurse and she said that pulmonary edema is rare and said he will probably be fine but they have to tell us that.  So please pray for little man that his surgery would go off without a hitch and there would be no complications afterwards.
Thanks friends

I'd say that counts as specific (and surprising) prayer requests. So glad for the update. God will keep me faithful to pray for you.

And just let me say that I want to throw up on your behalf. And weep and gnash my teeth. And punch a pillow until I fall asleep exhausted. Consolation? God is good. All. the. time. He is still loving and trustworthy, friend. He is. All. the. time.

i'm selfish...i want you back! And, even though reform is not next door, it is still closer. I can't imagine what you're going through right now, but I'm praying! We love you both and hope to see you soon. Please let us know if we can help in any way!
