I didn't get to go to Church last night after all.
As soon as I posted here, hubby's doctor called and said that they had decided to do another minor surgery to implant a filter in his vein to prevent clots reaching his lungs or heart. Because of his previous brain-bleed strokes, he can't be put on blood thinners to prevent the clots.
So, I called him to see if he wanted me to come back, and I got a resounding YES, which is unusual for him, wanting me to drive that curvy highway after dark. I knew that he must be feeling VERY anxious, and there was no way that I wasn't going to him, God willing.
I drove up there, arriving in plenty of time for his 10 p.m. surgery, and he came out of it beautifully. I then proceeded to spend the night in one of those pull-out chairs.
I had to come home around 9:30 a.m., though, as Piper had been shut in all night. When I called there to let him know that I had arrived home safely, he proudly told me of his using a walker during this morning's physical therapy !
He is supposed to be transported back here today, but the nursing home here is trying to locate one of those pumps that they use to inflate around his calves, again, to help prevent blood clots occuring. If they can't obtain one until tomorrow, his move will be delayed another day......personally, I LOVE his physical therapist up there, so that COULD BE a good thing.
So, here I am, trying to get things caught up around here, and waiting for the call from the nursing home.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
