Recent Low

By Scot Pollok on

Please forgive my absence. Liza is still fighting and fighting well, but the last few days have been very hard. Since she has gotten off almost every medication (save two and Tylenol) her pain has gradually gotten worse. Saturday, Sunday and Monday seemed to be a low point, with intense pain and...

Two Doctors in Two Days

By Scot Pollok on

Liza had a scheduled post-op meeting with Audra, Dr. Kim's amazing PA, on Wednesday, mid-morning, downtown at the Med Center. Even though I'm just back at work this week at the church offices, I took the day to take Liza and be with her. Would want it no other way.  She didn't sleep well...

Back Home and Zonked

By Scot Pollok on

We made it back home at 11:30AM. We unloaded and greeted our animals. Thanks to a very sweet friend, our house was looked after and freshly cleaned. That was an especially welcomed and wonderful gift to Liza. We unloaded and immediately began to settle in.  Because Andrew sampled his "rite...

Day 6

By Scot Pollok on

Kids and I were up early and hit breakfast. Another hilarious time with exceptionally good food. FAST FORWARD to family devo where mom joined us. Back up immediately afterward for the Kids to go off with their groups - Liza and I entered the last speaker session with the Adults.  I shared...

Day 5

By Scot Pollok on

Thursday is a lot like Tuesday here at camp. Two speaker sessions, lots of activities for the kids and an opportunity for Liza and I to take a nap in the afternoon.  We began the day with the best breakfast so far - including hilarious skits - and then FAST FORWARD, where we doubled up and...

Day 4

By Scot Pollok on

Wednesday here at family camp is different. Hump day is a completely free day for parents. So we decided to sleep in (Liza and I stayed in bed until almost noon) and the kids decided to get up and go (they went to breakfast and morning activities). We pushed pause on our family devo as to allow...

Day 3

By Scot Pollok on

Tuesday was a long day. But God was good. Liza endured well.  The kids and I went to breakfast and then FAST FORWARD and our counselor Goodie came back to our cabin for family devo. Then all four of us went up the hill again for the first of two speaker sessions for the day. It was great...

Day 2

By Scot Pollok on

First full day of family camp is in the bag. Kids are zonked and Liza is all tucked in, hopefully already sleeping. I am at the kitchen table in our great cabin writing to you and refreshing my two talks for tomorrow. Going to hopefully have a good prayer time after that and then get some sleep...

Back to Camp (a different one)

By on

Today got off to a diverse start. As I laid down to sleep in the wee hours of the morning, Liza was tossing and turning very frustrated. Friday night was one of the “best” night's sleep in a long time and then Saturday was one of the “worst.” We tried another long back...

Glorious Answered Prayer

By Scot Pollok on

Liza and I both slept in quite late today, till around noon. When she got up, she reported that last night was the best night sleep she has experienced in a very long time. That is a direct answer to prayer and a tremendous blessing.  Several other factors are involved we think. First, the...
