God, in His great mercy, gave James a good night's rest last night, and today his speaking is more understandable, and his cough seems to be gone ! Praise the LORD !
He is diagnosed with suspected pneumonia, Rhino virus, and Intero(?) virus---basically, very bad cold. His platelet count has dropped again to 11,000. He is scheduled to receive another platelet transfusion today, and received blood last night.
" 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
