God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Questions/ Answers for posters

-Xiaoyun means little cloud and is pronounced sh (as in ship) ow (as in cow) yeen
-Aus, I can't figure out to email you (not very computer literate)
-Next surgery is Wednesday morning (final surgery - yeah!!) and will begin around 8 am and will last most of the day. A lot of that is down time. They will do a bit, then do a CT and check progress, and also use a machine that is very exact and does part of the procedure for the surgeons (can't think of the name of that right now and will post that later).
At this point we do not know what her final curvature will be, nor how many inches she will gain.
They will have her up walking the 3rd day and we'll be able to measure her then (we are excited about that :-)  !)
The rods they will put in are permanent and are designed to keep her back stable until the vertebrae fuse together. She will not be able to bend where the fusion is done, so bending will take place from waist down.
She will have a brace molded to her body after surgery, that she will wear for 3-6 months after surgery.
- Leonor and Juan, we haven't received card yet, but are looking forward to it!!!
-Thanks to all who have shared her video and all who have sent cards and well wishes (along with lots of goodies!!!!)


  1. I will pray that the surgery goes good. I see that your son is in my neck of the woods. Also my daughter (if you don't remember) is from Guizhou.

  2. Yay, the end is in sight! What a long haul this has been for your family, but especially for Xiaoyun. I remember you all in my prayers every day and will pray especially hard for Wednesday's surgery to be completely successful and for Xiaoyun's recovery to go well.
