We have been so spoiled here in Virginia. The weather had been balmy and kind to us. However, this weekend the temperatures took a sudden plunge, ice fell from the sky, and suddenly we are thinking of creative ways to stay warm. Later today Katy and I are planning an afternoon movie with our electric blanket wrapped around us.
I took Katy to our family physician this morning and she was not really able to offer her any help. She drew blood labs to see if that will tell a story. Katy is forcing herself to eat but every swallow is painful again. We are very thankful for the twenty extra pounds she has on her right now. She is stronger with the extra weight and if she has to stop eating for a little while she has some weight to spare. We are awaiting a call from the doctor in Charlottesville. He will be telling us how to proceed.
For the past few weeks I have had a vision of Katy walking across a stage headed for a podium. She is smiling and waving with strength and vitality. That vision has come to my mind often. I am believing that it is a picture of something God is going to allow Katy to do in the future and that I will be there to see it. It helps so much to have a positive mental picture on days like this. A vision like that is the substance of things hoped for. Thank you for keeping her in your prayers.
