Our oldest daughter Micalyn (7th grade) runs cross country for Mayo. This past year was our first experience at meets and we were amazed at the number of other kids we knew. Tara was at all the meets, cheering for Micalyn, and the other kids to push them through the tough times. Now it is time for everyone to be there for her running along the course yelling, “Go, Tara! You’re gonna make it! You’re halfway there! Two more miles! The finish line is in sight!” I can’t wait to celebrate at the finish line! (Edited from Jennifer da Silvas comments on 2/2/13)
But for now we are just starting the race. We need your help. We cannot make it otherwise. We have real-life pain but real-life hope in a faithful God. Please join me in cheering Tara on. Pray that Tara can get enough protein and other nourishment before surgeries this week. Pray that the plan of action determined tomorrow at 8:30 gives her the best chance for remission. Pray for skill, precision and endurance for the surgeons who will be working on her.
We have Tara’s parents in town this week and my parents next week so we are in good shape with our kids. We have been blessed with an abundance of food. If you want to help, a friend is setting up sign up lists that you can access right on this site.
Stay tuned tomorrow for our plan plan of action. God is faithful. We trust him.
