Thankful for God's provision and protection

We have been back in the States since Oct. 17th. We spent a fun weekend in Hobe Sound and then drove to Pensacola to visit our family. We had a wonderful time with G-pa and G-ma Dunn visiting the beach and some other fun places. G-ma took the kids to a pumpkin patch and they got to pick a pumpkin, bring it home and carve it. They all let their personalities shine through the carvings and G-pa and G-ma's front yard was lined with a cool dude on a skateboard with his ipod, a princess carriage, a truck and a flower. I will let you guess who carved what?! ;o) Thanks for everything Lee & Edna!
  We left Fl. and arrived in IN late Mon. night at my parents house. We were only here two days when my 55 yr. old dad suffered a heart attack. It was a mild one and he went to the ER after realizing that something was wrong. His quick action saved his life. He ended up having a heart cath done that showed a 95% blockage in his main artery! The Dr. was able to put in a stint and he spent 3 days in the hospital. He is home now and recovering well.
  As you can imagine, this was a huge shock to our family and we are so thankful not only for God's protection on dad, but also for allowing us to be here when it happened! I cannot imagine how hard it would have been to receive that news in Haiti or even down in FL. But God knew and went before us and worked it out for our best and His glory! My dad is a wonderful, dedicated Christian man who we all love very much. Realizing how closely we came to losing him makes us appreciate and love him even more! Please keep him and my mom in your prayers as they have a lot of life changes ahead to help dad get better. He also has another small artery that is 75% blocked. The Dr.'s are hoping that his meds will clear it up, but if not, then they will need to put in another stint.
  We continue to ask for your prayers for Caleb's up-coming appointment at Riley Children's Hospital this coming Wed. around 9 am. Please help us pray specifically for answers to what is going on and what we need to do to help him. Once again, this is in God's hands and we rest in that fact. God is so good and has never and will never let us down! Can we ask for anymore than that?! Lets make sure we share about our amazing God to a hurting world who needs a savior! Blessings on you all!
