MRI

Stephanie’s MRI did not happen until sometime around 6am. I was told before going to sleep at 2:30am that it was going to be “soon.” I’m still getting used to “hospital time” which is exponentially slower than real time. The staff is now changing shifts which took 1.5 hours last night, and then they have to put her electrical leads back in for the EEG. I’m hoping to have some sort of news before noon.

I’m incredibly nervous to receive that news because I feel it could go either way at this moment. I can only hold onto God’s promises and remind myself that He knows what is best for His purposes in our lives.

Family and friend support has been incredible. My parents are now housing the entire eastern seaboard, with family from North Carolina, South Carolina, Hartville, Ohio and Cleveland. Stephanie has an aunt from Wooster who is driving up each day. Everyone has just been incredible. Thank you all. His is truly showing His love and grace through you.

  1. Brad,
    We are all praying with you and anxiously waiting the results of the MRI. Whatever God reveals, know that that we stand with you, brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, praying you and Stephanie and your families through every second.

  2. Brad and family,

    Although Steven and I only met your wife a few times and only for a brief moment at that, I find myself thinking about her and your family quite frequently over the past few days. I can not imagine what you are going through but I know that you are a very strong man with a huge heart and a very passionate faith.

    I hate the fact that something so horrible has brought us back in contact, but God works in mysterious ways. Please know that anything Steven and I can do to help you and your family, we are there. We are still in the Cleveland area and I actually work for the Cleveland Clinic. Do not hestitate to ask, anytime and anywhere we would be glad to help. Your strength through this is so important for Stephanie, Brady, Hallie and all your family so remember to take care of yourself as well.

    ‘For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.’ 2 Timothy 1:7
    ‘But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ‘ Isaiah 40:31
