We spent a few hours today at the Oncology center in Roanoke meeting Katy’s hematologist. She is very sweet! She was born and raised in India near Hyderabad so we told her the story of Candice and Crystal. She was so animated as she heard the story. She told Katy that she and the twins were very fortunate that they are here in this country where medical care is available for them. Afterwards, Katy and I talked about all the other things available to us for our comfort when we hurt. We prayed a prayer of thanksgiving for her flannel sheets, and electric blanket.
Our pastor, David Blugerman, came to our home late this afternoon to share scripture and communion with Katy. It was such a special time. I had to take a phone call but when I returned they were bowed in prayer and had such a sweet prayer time. After he left, Katy told me she felt refreshed. I’m glad he came.
Katy’s headache was almost gone by this morning. It was a blessing. The misery she is dealing with in her digestive tract today is zapping enough of her strength. We pray the medication she is on will begin to turn things around quickly. She has lost 5 lbs since last Friday. We rely on the goodness of the Lord, knowing it is all in His hands.
