It was a difficult night. The fever started again about 2 AM and since Katy and I got very little sleep, Paul stayed home this morning to take care of Katy’s medications, phone calls, etc. I hit a real low during the night because of exhaustion, I think. I was trying not to borrow trouble by wondering how long will this last, but my imagination got the better of me. I heard Katy praying for me out loud. Without my voicing a single word about this exhaustion I heard her ask for more strength. Then when we woke up this morning there was an absolutely wonderful letter from someone very special that was left on the back porch. Just the way it was written and the scripture that was used lifted me up like nothing else could. God has certainly blessed me over the years with wonderful women either to teach or to teach me.
I just got off the phone with Katy’s physician and it seems she has a bacteria growing in her blood. This will be treated with an antibiotic, but it is never good to be growing bacteria in the blood. Katy was told by Jesus Himself that He had more for her to do. Therefore, this news is another opportunity to trust the Healer. We know you are praying. We thank you for that. This has been a trying time for all of you as well. Day after day we have all asked for healing. I promised myself last night that I would take captive the thought, “How much more God?” And replace it with, “I will trust in your unfailing love.” It immediately reduces anxiety.
