A Gut Feeling

The biopsy has been cancelled. I just had a strong feeling that we shouldnt do the biopsy. The benefit did not seem to outweigh the risk and I couldnt seem to find a peace in this all. I prayed all day, all night and all this morning for God to miraculously intervene. I couldnt go through with the procedure unless everyone was on board and fully committed…and that just wasnt the case. The team of surgeons met this morning and all agreed that the procedure was much too risky. After all teams met- cardiac team, surgeons, and GI- not one of them completely felt that this was the best thing to do.

WHAT A RELIEF! (and thanking God for His intervention)

  1. Wow Elisabeth, I was going to email you last night to tell you don’t let them talk you into something you and Daniel were not completely on board with. You guys have the Holy Spirit guiding you, trust in that.

  2. Good, take confidence in the decision God is guiding you guys in. No matter the outcome it is His ultimate will that prevails. Praying not only for Jane and you two, but also the doctors and nurses.
    Isaiah 55
    8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
    declares the LORD.
    9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
    10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
    and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
    and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
    11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
    but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
    12 You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
    the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
    and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.
    13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
    This will be for the LORD’s renown,
    for an everlasting sign,
    that will endure forever.”

    How amazing is our Lord!!! Yet another awesome example of answering prayers. We continue to pray for Jane and I trust that the doctors will find a way to figure out what’s wrong and be able to fix her in a way that is best for her and that you, the parents, feel comfortable with. Continue to trust that mother’s intuition Elisabeth!
    Lots of love, The Siapin fam

  4. God hears all prayers again! As I sit hear and look at Jane, she is a beautiful creation of God & He has once again came to her rescue! You both prayed for wisdom and He gave it to You both and the Drs. I am so blessed to be here and see her in her cute little bear hat with pink ears and the rhino that he Papa gave her! And her 2 little rag dolls that smell just like her Mama! I am a bragging Bunya!!! God continue to Bless all 3 of you!
