Scotty

Jeremiah 29:11-12 (New Living Translation)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen.

Isn't this a comfort?
On Sunday Scotty called us, he thought he better go to urgent care. He hadn't been feeling well all week. He'd had various symptoms, including a low grade fever, and a cough. When we were seen at urgent care, the Dr. basically told him he should really be at the ER. Looking at his vitals, he told him he needed a blood test and the urgent care didn't have access to any testing. So we went over to the U of M. They drew a bunch of blood for tests, they got him on oxygen because he wasn't getting saturation, and they started i.v. antibiotics.
Yesterday they were thinking one of the leads to his pacemaker were infected, but after another test, they ruled that out(praise the Lord)! Now they think it may be the port where he gets his dialysis, which comes right out of his heart. So they have removed the port and will culture it for bacteria. Meanwhile he's getting 3 types of antibiotics. He seems to be feeling some better, and had a good nights sleep last night.
All this time Dave has been out of town. He's down in Rochester, doing a strip and re coat of the floors in a Petsmart there. So he's wishing he could be here, but has been in constant phone contact, and having an all night prayer meetings, while working. He should be back today. He better be we're (the boys and I) are supposed to leave Sunday for 3 weeks of camp!
God is so good, I praise him for strength and patience, which He gives so liberally. If God brings us to your thoughts, pray for us.

Home at last, thank the Lord.
It was a tough week physically, but a blessing spiritually.
I finished work this morning at 5 AM, stood in the parking lot with a cold wind blowing on my face. The clouds were tinged with pink. I felt like I was the only person on earth and God was enjoying my praise.
Pray for Scottie, he's lost a lot of weight. He's skin and bones. But we prayed for him today reminding him that if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in him, that He shall quicken his mortal body by that same Spirit. Glory to God. The devil is a defeated liar, we are redeemed!.
