Bob was discharged from the hospital this afternoon and is happy to be home. I'm happy to report that all of his test reports were good and showed no problems. He will have to see our Dr next week for a follow up. If he has any further problems you can be assured that I won't let him ignore them! On the one hand, I'm happy that they didn't find damage or problems, but it's also frustrating because I'd like to know what was causing the issues he had. He has tomorrow off work and goes back on Wednesday. He is supposed to avoid stress and any hard physical labor. I guess I'll be doing the driveway the rest of the winter! (and as I told him - I'm happy to do it!)
We so appreciate all of your prayers. It is really humbling to know that people from all over the world are praying and we thank you all. Please keep praying that the Dr's get to the bottom of this.
You may be wondering what the picture has to do with the rest of this post. It's showing a bracelet that I bought at the hospital gift shop. The words on it say: "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord." Jeremiah 29:11 I've always liked that verse and thought it was really fitting for a health scare. Isn't it reassuring that God has plans for our lives? The rest of the verse says: "plans to prosper you, and not to harm you". That doesn't mean that everything that happens to us will be wonderful, but it does mean that God is taking care of us and even when bad things happen they can be used for good by Him. We also have to remember that God sees the "big picture," when we only see a little portion. Knowing this sure does help during difficult times!
