Dear family and friends,

Let me declare from the outset that I (Emily) am attempting the impossible in trying to describe the depth and breadth of the oceans of gratitude and love we have for each and everyone of you! This journey, thus far, has been a strange one of agony and amazement. The lion’s share of agony was and is Dave’s physical trauma. However, the helplessness of watching Dave suffer and the strain of waiting - during surgeries and in this period of healing - is emotionally agonizing.

In counterpoint to the distress, we have also experienced amazement at God’s grace, creativity and provision! We can testify to God’s grace and protection in knowing Dave could have sustained far more severe injuries or post-surgical complications. We are dazzled by God’s creativity as we have discovered just how intricate and interdependent are the systems in the human body. And we have been completely astounded and awestruck by God’s provision through family, friends and many we have never met! Dave and I are convinced that you were prompted by God to so selflessly and generously sacrifice your time, talents and “treasure” to provide for our needs at this time. We know you all have sacrificed valuable assets on our behalf, and we are overwhelmed and humbled by the enormity of your benevolence! Thank you for providing “answers” to our prayers! We can never thank you enough, and we will never stop thanking you! Last but not least, is the amazing - surprising and inexplicable - peace and joy I have felt during the last few months.

When I applied Paul’s recommended actions and attitudes, as described in Philippians 4:4-6, God fulfilled His promise given in Philippians 4:7:

“Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. I will say it again: rejoice! … The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

Your prayers and great kindnesses have contributed greatly to those gifts of peace and joy in this time of trouble! Daily, we will pray that “…a good measure of…” God’s blessing “…pressed down, shaken together, and running over be poured into your laps!” (Luke 6:38) May you trust in God’s faithfulness and personally experience His amazing peace and joy, too!

With our deepest appreciation and highest regard,

Emily and Dave

PS. Please continue to pray for healing in the nerves in Dave’s legs and feet! THANK YOU!

Spotlight on the House Projects Team

What happens when you suddenly need to reconfigure a home so that it can accomodate wheelchair accessibility?  If you are Team Dave, you call in the House Projects Crew!

Under the leadership of David Kinley, the Crew rallied in the first week of October.  This dedicated sub-team descended upon Casa Haddick like the folks from Extreme Home Makeover.  In just a few short days, they completed these projects:

  • Paved pathway from the driveway to the house
  • Installed a ramp to get into the house
  • Replaced the front door and bathroom door
  • Replaced the vanity and sink with a wall-mounted counter and sink in the bathroom
  • Installed a handheld shower attachment
  • Moved furniture from 4 different rooms to create a bedroom space in the main floor play room
  • Installed a curtain to section off the living room and new bedroom area
  • Put furniture items into storage

Well, as you can imagine, the house was ready for a joyous welcome when Dave finally came home
on Oct. 8.  Thanks to the many professionals and handymen that made it all possible in such a short time. 
MOVE THAT BUS!

WILLIAM SCHEDULED FOR SURGERY NEXT WEEK 

After 8 weeks of chemotherapy, William is scheduled to have a bone marrow transplant surgery on August 20.  The doctors have been pleased with the results of the chemotherapy so far, and his counts have been good.  The surgery will require William to remain in the hospital for 3 days.  His dad Roger has postponed his previously planned business trip to San Francisco to be with William at Childrens Hospital during the recovery.  After the surgery, we will provide updates to let everyone know how he is doing and details about visiting him in the hospital. 

FUNDRAISING AUCTION PLANNED TO BENEFIT WILLIAM 

Because of the additional medical expenses, Team William is planning a benefit auction at Enterprise Elementary School in September.  The Fundraising Team is having their first meeting on August 15.  Those interested in donating items or helping with the event, please contact Shelly Thomas (see Contact List below).
