No Update

Sometimes waiting can be really hard. Today is Sunday and I feel bad that I don't have anything more to update people with on my Dad. I haven't sent out an email because there isn't much to report. I don't want to alarm anyone with the episodes we've faced today. So I'll write here instead.

Dad was experiencing some shortness of breath and began to get pale once again. Only this time it was not his heart. It was because of the fluid in his lungs. Words like Congestive Heart Failure were tossed out there. But, he responded so well and rather quickly to the medicines that gave him for that.

They have not yet done the "echo" to look at the heart. Again, another thing to wait on.

So, with this waiting, I just pray.

Lord, I trust you. I take comfort in knowing that you have planned and know what is going to happen. Continue to give us grace, patience and peace. Help Daddy to not feel "down" because of the circumstances of his stay. Thank you for giving him Your Peace. I see it in his face and that is a precious gift You've given.

Please know that even though I dont know your dad I am praying for him. I know the waiting is hard, we went through a lot of waiting with my grandfather last year. God is by your side and your dad's side. Keep praying, God hears.

We're all praying for you and your fam, Rach. Thanks for keeping us updated...it helps when the church "telephone" party starts, to know the actual facts. :) Your heart and outlook are amazing, my friend. Love you lots.
