Medical Update - Kathryn

I'm going to post a quick update here while Qavah is having her lunch. I plan to take the phone off the hook and sleep along with the girls this afternoon. I took Kathryn to the hospital for another dose of Salumedrol this morning. She is stronger today and I see it in little ways. For instance, I got her dressed and put a little make up on her but today she passed the mirror and looked at herself. That's progress. When I pointed that out to Kathryn she said, "Yeah, I'm such a girl." Humor is another good sign.

While Kathryn has long periods of time when she is unresponsive I miss her. We have so many conversations rich in theology and doctrine. There are times that we share verses with each other that touch our hearts deeply. Sometimes when I don't know how to help Kathryn I feel like I am stumbling around in the darkness looking for some little glimmer of light. I found this verse last night and it taught me about having faith in the dark times. I'll close with a word from God.

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord, and rely on his God.
Isaiah 50:10
