We got the news yesterday that we were hoping not to get. Meskerem has septicemia (also known as "septis") which is a serious blood infection. She is on IV antibiotics to treat this. According to our Pediatrician, she will need to be on these antibiotics for weeks. I am waiting for confirmation on that from her doctors as well. Assuming they also say she will be treated for weeks, I am going to Ethiopia to be with her.
This is such a tough, tough decision for us. Obviously we are distraught to begin with over this diagnosis. I am happy to get to see Meskerem in person earlier than expected, but I wish it was under better circumstances. But to think of getting to spend time with her, and then having to come home without her...it's breaking my heart. I don't know how I am going to do it. I am relying totally on the Lord.
2 Corinthians 12:9 - And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness."... verse 10 ...for when I am weak, then I am strong.
I am excited to be in a season of my life where I will get to witness miracles. I am expecting the Lord to work miracles of healing, financial provision, needs being met while I am away, and peace over my family while we are apart. I am so grateful to serve a God who is bigger than all this.
