Katy is resting comfortably at RMH. Paul Burton is spending time with her this evening and the nursing staff has been wonderful. They have been giving Katy her electrolytes faithfully. Things have calmed down considerably since last night but Katy was hoping to be feeling much stronger by now. Her endocrinologist is going to be meeting with her in the morning. He is a kind man and nearing retirement. His listening skills are great, and Katy never leaves a meeting with him feeling diminished.
We have seen the Lord’s goodness all day. He is faithful to provide. When Katy’s food tray arrived it looked marvelous, but she said she didn’t have the energy to digest roast beef and mashed potatoes so the nurse’s assistant ordered her a light sandwich for later tonight. Katy thanked her repeatedly for doing that. Another nurse took Qavah around the eighth floor to smile and wave at people while Katy and I had some time alone to cry, blow our noses, brush her teeth, and put on a little lipstick. It was all good.
Paul is in Houston on business. We talked this morning and he said, “I’m in Houston but my heart is home with you and the girls.” All married men reading this blog should call their wives tomorrow and say something like that even if you aren’t in Houston. It made me smile about five times today. It was another gift of love that reminds me that God has surrounded us with good things and we must choose to focus on the all-surpassing greatness of His power at work in all circumstances. Sleep well friends, and know that you are helping us persevere through all these challenges.Comments:
