Philippians 4:6-7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Sometimes the answer to our prayers is "no." Sometimes it's "not now." Sometimes it's "yes." We are praying a very specific prayer right now, but have the "peace of God, which transcends all understanding" that God's will is correct and He knows what's best.

Tammy has an appointment at KU Med Center Thursday afternoon. This is the first step in the process to see if KU will take the case and if Tammy's insurance will cover it in-network. There is no in-network hospital in Kansas City that does bone-marrow transplants, which is why we went to St. Louis a couple of weeks ago. We found out this morning that her out-of-pocket maximum for out-of-network service is $8,000.

Our prayer is that KU would accept the case and that the appeal to have it treated as in-network would be successful. We can't afford $8,000, especially when Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis would cost us $500.

We are at peace with whatever God decides to do, but it doesn't keep us from praying for an option we desire. We appreciate your prayers.

Above my desk at work I read for Tammy: "Fear thou not; for I am with thee; do not be dismayed for I am thy God; I will help thee; I will strengthn thee; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my rightousness." Isaiah 41:10
God's warm words are for her every day and to bless all of you at this time.
