Robie’s Health

May 12, 2009

For those that are wondering or have not heard, we had another scare with Robie’s health last night. While I was in Dallas she called to say that she had lost peripheral vision and some of her line of sight vision. This has been accompanied by some head pain. Doctors told us to send her in for a MRI scan. We drove back (read=Justin Hroch) at 2:30am and received the good news that the scan was clean. Doctors are urging her to see a neurologist, suggesting it may be MS. We’ve read and heard about severe migraines causing this and are hopeful that is the diagnosis.

So, we’re wiped and grateful for all the emails, texts, and phone calls. Robie is resting and her vision is back to normal, thank God. A special thanks to the Klebs, who stayed with the kids while I was in Dallas and Sam took Robie to the hospital, where he stayed with her till I arrived around 6:30am. We’re grateful for the news and support we’ve had. Times like this drive you into the Lord who alone is our Strong Tower and with whom we are safe. Nothing like you wife’s life flashing before your eyes to drive you to prayer and deep gratitude for her. Come what may, we are together hoping in the God who designs even the scariest times for our everlasting good.

    Jonathan and Robie,
    We love you guys and we’re so sorry to hear about what you’re going through. Heidi and I will be praying that God will sustain you, heal you, and cause to endure with patience. We’ll also be praying for Ellie and Owen.

    Hey everyone, I just want to THANK YOU so much for all of your prayers, love and kindesses to us over the past 24 hours – your love and words have meant so much to me and to Jonathan!
    I am happy to announce that so far nothing appears to be ‘serious’ and, though we are still exploring options, there is reason to believe my vision loss is only a minor issue. I do appreciate your continued prayers for “minorness!”
    You have each been so thoughtful, I can’t thank you enough!!!
