Katy and I spent the afternoon and evening together finishing another chapter of Daniel. It is good for us to keep our minds active and to discuss the truth of God’s word. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, it is all too easy to lose sight of His promises when the pressure is on. The historical accounts recorded in Daniel are so marvelous to us because they were only a vision of what was to come. Most all of the prophecies of Daniel were fulfilled long after Daniel was gone. What appears to be a great mystery to us is fully known to God. He knows how this chapter in our lives is going to end, and we know we have to patiently wait to see it unfold.
Katy’s amylase and lipase levels are still elevated but she had a real treat tonight. I let her lick the salt off corn chips. I don’t know how she can manage to be so disciplined, but it tasted good to her and she was satisfied to lick the salt and throw the soggy chips away. We finished off the evening watching the DVD that accompanies the Daniel study. We sat together licking chips and sipping water. We had several laughs, and I still am amazed at how terrific she looks. Her weight and lab work shows her doing very well. Her GI doctor will be seeing her again tomorrow. Her Remicade treatment was given during the night, so in many ways she was feeling better today. I took her for a ride in a wheel chair out to a beautiful waterfall and garden area. We sat outside in a sheltered grassy area enjoying the balmy air. I loved her parting words tonight as I was getting ready to leave the hospital. She said it had been a great day. Then she said, “Hold on Mom, you are doing so well!” I thought that was supposed to be my line!Comments:
