A few weeks ago, I asked you to pray for our friend Shawn. There has been a deluge of prayers and countless offers to help, for which we are very grateful. Today, I'd like to give you an opportunity to get to know Shawn a little better.
A lot has happened in the last couple of months. I know a lot of people have been asking and information has come out sporadically here and there. First and foremost, I appreciate so much the support from everyone. It has been difficult for sure, but I am trusting God’s sovereign plan and purpose.
Earlier this spring, in mid April, I started to feel fatigued throughout the day, a building headache, and periodic low grade fevers. I went to the Dr. and some blood work came back positive for Lyme disease. I took antibiotics for 3 weeks but didn’t feel better after the cycle (in fact I felt worse). I then took another 10 day cycle to see if it helped and it did not. On June 19, I starting to get sharp pains in my lower back, stomach, and chest. I went to the ER where they performed some tests and found a 6 by 7 cm mass in my chest. Please read the rest here.
