    This past year

    My family is preparing to go on our second mission trip to Nicaragua. We went on our first trip last year around this time. Right after we got back, we noticed that my oldest daughter's back was crooked. She was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis that was progressing so rapidly that she required surgery. The first surgery went well in regards to straightening her spine, but she contracted an infection that had a 50% mortality rate. Two more surgeries, 6 weeks of anti-biotics through a PIC line, and 6 months of oral antibiotics, she is well. Her back is much straighter, more so than the doctor even thought he could do,and now she is taller than her Mom. She was also able to dance competitively three months after her first surgery. We are returning to Nicaragua today. God is indeed good!

    So let me get this straight... your daughter went through all of that and her reward is that she has to do competitive dance and go back to Nicaragua?

    Totally kidding... good luck with the mission and Godspeed.

    Competitive dance is the penance I pay as a Dance Dad :)


    Getting back in dance is what kept her going through the tough days of recuperation. Her doctor is amazed at how quick she returned. He is using videos of her dancing to show other patients that are getting ready to go through the same surgery.

    Excellent news, phreddy, and glad you shared with us.

    God is indeed good. He allowed a trial into your lives, which drew all of your closer to Him, and to share your daughter's testimony and help others.

    His love is beyond all understanding.
