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

What an Improvement!!!!

Today has been so much better! Xiaoyun is actually walking to the bathroom, and even managed to walk down the hallway. She sat up for a couple of hours in her wheelchair, and has eaten quite a bit more food than she has in days. Her pain pump and IV are gone (still has PICC line, but not using it). We actually got to laughing about something, until it hurt her too much to laugh! The surgeon still is planning on Wednesday surgery. Besides removing some vertebrae and discs, they are also going to remove another rib. This will be an anterior cut. She's sitting up right now reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid (in Simplified Chinese), which is a far cry from where we were just two days ago. Praise the Lord for answered prayers!!!


  1. Way to go, Xiaoyun! You are so strong! Keep eating and your body will have the energy to heal.

    When you say anterior cut to you mean the the incision will be on the front or side of Xiaoyun instead of on her back? I am looking forward to reading your post in the future when Xiaoyun is past this and healed and able to run and breath and gain weight and thrive.

  2. Love this report! Thankful for answered prayer!

  3. Great news!! Auntie Rhonda
