Great News!!!

Well, since last I posted, my sister Andrea, her husband Jeff, and I went to see the Dr. who did my friend's liberation at the American Fork Hospital, here in UTAH!!! He was so very kind, and if anyone wants his information I'd be happy to email it to you. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't mind me sharing his info publicly, but I didn't specifically ask his permission so I better not. Anyway, as of today, Andrea has her ultrasound (yes, we know they're kind of pointless) scheduled for Nov. 2, and her venogram (woooohooooooo) scheduled for November 4th!!!!!!!! We sat in his office as he told us that he would be able to do the procedure for her and couldn't help but just cry. I am so excited for her and I hope and pray that he finds something and is able to help her to feel better.
It's amazing to look at the chain of events leading up to this point. Me, not understanding why in the world I needed to go to Costa Rica to be liberated, but knowing very strongly that I did, running into my sweet friend Lynda in Alpine, her asking her vein surgeon friend about the procedure, him researching it and deciding to do it on her, and now they are taking patient after patient and even joining with my neurologist to be part of a national trial! I feel so incredibly blessed and know of a surety that God loves me and He loves you and He is so aware of our needs. Miracles happen!!! Also, my two aunts who have MS are going to see the same Dr. on November 9th and they will hopefully be liberated within the month too!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness, just thinking of it overwhelms me with joy and gratitude. I'll keep you posted on how they all do. Thanks so much to each of you for all of your love and support, and please contact me if you need more info( or send my info on to anyone who I can help.
Life is good!!!!!


  1. That is so wonderful!! Reminds me of the hymn, "As Sisters in Zion", the part that goes, "the errand of angels is given to women, and this is a gift that as sisters we claim. To do whatsoever is gentle and human, to cheer and to bless in humanity's name." :)

  2. What beautiful news! Just imagine how many people you have touched by sharing your story and encouraging them to seek the treatment. HUGS!

  3. Oh, I have goosebumps all over reading this amazing happiness. God is good!

  4. Toby that is truly amazing! I am so glad things have worked out so well. You are such an amazing person. Sounds like things can only get better and better. :)
