This morning I woke up in conflict. I believe our words up to this point may have erred on the side of disrespect in regards to the doctor we have named "worst case scenario" doctor. The meaning behind that name is not to be demeaning, it is what he told us he brings. He explained last Wednesday it is his job to bring the "worst case scenario" and if it turns out not to be true then we are all excited and in the end, and no one is let down. We are called to respect the men and women of knowledge God allows to cross our paths. This particular doctor is one of the top in his field across the nation. We are very blessed we have such highly regarded doctors working with us (sometimes we have to remind ourselves of this simply because of our difference of opinions in appropriate bedside manner). We do not know him personally or where his faith may lie. I think Eric and I have become weary of him simply because we agreed that last week, whenever he left our hospital room we were left feeling tired and defeated. We now feel there is a reason this is the doctor we deal with most regularly and we are not in a position to judge him or anybody else. We have prayed that it would be God's words that fill these pages and not our own. We know our God's words would not have painted a sinister picture. We apologize and ask for your forgiveness if our words have allowed you to feel negatively towards this man.
