The memories we had of yesterday’s drive kept Katy and me encouraged all night. I woke up every two hours to give her pain medication and she was already awake and waiting. We recalled the changing of the leaves and the music and message of Wellspring Presbyterian church, where we worship. We had a one o’clock appointment today to see Katy’s doctor, and he examined her and told us we should not take her home. It was his recommendation to put her back in the hospital, and that is where she is now. Her pancreas and liver function tests have been taken. Her inability to eat, along with her abdominal issues were one thing to consider. But Katy has also developed something on her skin that is suspicious. It was cultured and IV antibiotics are being started before the results are back.
Katy knows her future is secure. She knows Who holds tomorrow. Her faith is unwavering, but she longs for heaven. It is an intense longing for the blessing of rest from what seems like unending trials. She is not contemplating anything horrible. She is not particularly filled with depression. She just longs for the peace and rest she knows is waiting for her and all who believe in the finished work of the cross; the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This day’s events cannot steal the joy we had yesterday. The earth was filled with His glory and we were together to enjoy all that beauty. Our hearts were mended in so many ways. Thank you for your prayers. We thank our precious church family. We came home to get Katy’s belongings and found a meal in our refrigerator and one hot and ready in the oven. God bless you for that!Comments:
