Yesterday friends and church family came and had prayer for Katy. We sang a couple of hymns together. Friends, you have done more than you know to help us keep going. Your comments after yesterday’s post meant so much to us, too. I’ve printed them out to take with us to Charlottesville to read to Katy during her tests. Your encouragement is such a great help to keep her in a positive frame of mind.
I received an email from NIH this afternoon restating the purpose of their mission, which is research. They are kind and said they would help by talking with any of Katy’s doctors but their involvement in any other way at this time is just not possible. I also sent an email to her doctor in Charlottesville to let them know of Katy’s condition. I received a phone call from one of the physicians at UVA a few minutes ago expressing concern that Katy is not improving in a way that we had all hoped. Therefore her suggestion was to stay in close contact with them and keep a careful eye on her weight and hydration. We will keep the appointment for tomorrow for the tests that were scheduled, but we will pack our things in the event that she would have to stay.
Meanwhile, our spirits are free of worry today. God has been faithful to keep our hearts in perfect peace. We had a good prayer time this afternoon and then put the speaker phone on the bed and called a few friends that we have been wanting to visit. We talked to each of them a few minutes. Each phone call was a lovely visit. The speaker phone idea worked so well that we are planning to make a list for a few more telephone visits. So have your cup of tea ready, one of these days we may be calling you! After our phone calls, Paul called us. When we told him about our speaker phone visits we put him on the speaker phone while he read Isaiah 41 to us. “For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”Comments:
