Katy had two very good days this week. We took advantage of the pretty weather and spent some time outdoors. But today Katy was not feeling right from the time she woke up this morning. She was aching and tired so when we went to the library she was not as interested in being there as she was a few days ago. We came home and she told us that she just wanted to take a nap. We thought she was happily sleeping all afternoon so when I went to wake her up I was surprised to find her unable to stir. I found her in a tight fetal position with all her muscles locked in place. I could tell she was hearing me but was not able to respond at all. I called for Paul and he came to help me with her. Paul Burton was in the house and after checking her over he suggested we try a muscle relaxing drug. I tried to put it in her mouth but everything was locked up. I finally managed to get the drug into her cheek and as it dissolved over the next thirty minutes she began to loosen up. The three of us laid hands on her and prayed for healing. After forty-five minutes she could talk to us and explained that she had been trying to call for help for two hours. So much of what she goes through is so mysterious. We can’t possibly take her to the doctor for everything, so we are just going to watch her carefully tonight and give her medication at the first sign of muscle tightening.
When she could finally ask us questions she asked what time it was. When I told her it was after six o’clock she said, “I am having the missions committee here for a meeting in one hour.” We flew into action and put hot towels on her face and on some of the places that hurt the most. Then we quickly set the table with ice water, swept the kitchen and got Katy ready before the first person showed up for the meeting. At this moment she is in the dining room with five men and one other woman having her meeting! Paul and I have been praying for her strength from time to time for the past two hours. We could hear her reading the minutes of last month’s meeting and reporting on her research. We are thankful tonight that nothing stops Katy. We are thankful tonight that when we saw her in such a condition, the Lord saw it too and has supplied her every need.Comments:
