Interesting Encounter

Well, today we caught up on some much needed rest. We ate a continental breakfast here at the hotel of made-to-order omelets and Belgian waffles; as well as the normal cereal, fruit and bagels. After breakfast, Abigail was ready for a nap. This is not her usual routine, but I guess she was tired from her traveling because she took a 2 1/2 nap...and so did we! Once we got up and going, we drove around Cincy and ended up at the Kenwood Townecenter (mall). We ate Cincinnati Chili, and for those of you who have never heard of this chili; it is served on top of spaghetti noodles. Not only that, but it also has cinnamon and chocolate in it. It is different and for reasons I cannot explain, I want more. Ross thinks they have laced it with some sort of drug that induces a craving. Needless to say, we like our Texas-style chili better. Okay, for the interesting part. After we ordered our Cincinnati Chili, a man (about our ages) asked us about our bracelets. He said, "Are those CURED bracelets?" We said yes and he followed with, "I have it. I have EE." I think Ross and I were both in pure amazement. Amazed that the Lord has brought us to this city and in the mall ordering chili at the exact same time as this man. We talked to him, his wife, and baby son for quite some time. I was touched by his attitude, dedication for this disease and emotion he showed for Abigail! This is just proof that the Lord has us right where He wants us at all times; around those He has placed around us...even standing in line waiting for chili.

Prayer Requests: Tomorrow we will be seeing Dr. Putnum (GI) and Abigail's scope is scheduled for 2pm (1pm your time). Pray for safety during anesthesia and wisdom for Dr. Putnum.
