Another Pajama Day

Katy and I look pretty much the same as when we went to bed last night. I even wore a trench coat over my pajamas to put a letter out in the mailbox this afternoon. That was funny because we had another “bonus day” here in the south with temperatures in the low seventies. The coat looked way out of place, but then so would my pajamas. I have been blowing my nose and staying in bed, drinking lots of water and taking vitamins, so any moment now I should experience a burst of new energy. Katy had a good nap day too.

We’ve started the process of contacting and sending records to the University of North Carolina Hospital in Durham. After the doctor there reviews Katy’s records we will get a call with an appointment. On the one hand we wish it could all go away. Then there is the reality. We have to continue pursuing the right medical treatment for Katy if she is going to move forward.

Today when I read the comments my heart was so moved by the things that are going on in some of your lives. I think about Heather at NIH, going through medical testing on her own body in the hopes of finding a cure for the lung problems associated with HPS. I wish we could be there. We can ask the Lord to make His presence very real to you tonight. And my friend, Linda, who has had some losses in life that broke our hearts, was driving along in the darkness of early morning, to say goodbye to her father, after caring for him so faithfully all these years. You all are dear to me, and isn’t it great that through prayer, we can lift each other up and ask God for the comfort that only He can give.

For all of our friends reading this blog, and even for the single girls who shared from their hearts the other day, this is a prayer for all of you.

Father God, there are so many people tonight who need to know that You are near and that You love them. Help them to remember the times in their past that You showed Yourself to them in wonderful ways, then give them the faith that You will do it again. In Jesus’ name. Amen

    Awe, Dawn, you’re so sweet. I’m actually doing very well tonight. Normally before my pulmonary function tests I’m a mess, and you’d think I’d be all stressed out since I’m coughing so much - but actually I’ve really enjoyed the evening. It’s been kind of a blessing to be able to get some rest guilt free! Grin!

    Hi Katy,
    I hope your mom feels better soon!! I’ll be praying you don’t pick any of that up either. Thank you, Dawn, for so faithfully keeping us updated, even when you’re not feeling well!!
    With love and prayers,
    Jen :-)

    Hey Dawn -
    Thank you for this post. Something has popped up and I spent yesterday evening in tears - so the prayer to “feel God’s nearness” was much needed and appreciated! I’m thinking I need a pajama day myself!

    Love ya’ll!
