Suzie and I are headed back to Ann Arbor. Bill is with Cruz at the hospital. If any of you can go up and give him a break to get lunch or supper, that would be great! If you're lucky, Cruz will be sleeping when you do.

Noontime we had a family gathering and designated who was going to do what. Nothing their doing for Lindsay is working and she's having a tough time. The four surgeons are meeting this afternoon to discuss what they are going to do. Lord, please guide them to make the right decision. It's in his hands.

Heart hugs,

Stay strong! She can do it and so can you. We will be hoping and praying that the doctors get everything perfect so she can heal and go home.

Dear God,
I don't even know this family except by name. But you do. You know exactly what they need. You know every hair on their head. Give them peace. Give them a hug.

Be with the doctors and guide their decisions. Guide their hands as they carry out these decisions.

Heal this family Father, as only you can. Be their Physician, be their Healer, be their Abby Daddy.

Thank you Father for the testimony of faith that the Dean family has been to so many. Bless them more than they ever thought was imaginable. Amen.

A fellow prayer warrior,

Oh Susie and JR, I don't even know what to say. Keep your faith and focus above! So many are praying for you and loving you and sweet baby Lindsay right now. I have, along with others, cried enough tears for you these last couple of days that you can skip that part.

Just know how much we love you!!
Stay strong.....

Love, Alison

Hi Suzie! You might not even remember me but I am Nicole Shank's cousin, Jeni, from Alabama that used to come up and stay summers in Michigan and I would hang out with you and Nikki sometimes. I just wanted you to know that I am praying for your family and little Lindsay. I will add her to our prayer list at church. I am amazed at your strength and faith and little Lindsay is lucky to have such faithful and caring parents. I have a couple of scriptures that I hope that you can take comfort in during this time. "Be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:9 and "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope... Romans 15:13 Keep the faith!
