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.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
