Focus on the Goodness

A dear friend shared a passage of scripture with me today that she memorized through a trying time in her life:  Psalm 27:13-14  "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD."  

I definitely wouldn't be able to stand the testing if I didn't consider the goodness of the Lord!  And, I also have to think, as Job thought, "And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."  Job 1:21

I have my moments of doubt and fear, like last night as I traveled home by myself.  But, the only thing I know to do for comfort in those times is to pray.  And the Lord answers those prayers by sending comfort to my heart and puts my heart and mind at peace.

At 3 p.m. we got the good news that Tim would receive his 6th dose!  He weighed 187.2 upon arrival and when they weighed him around 2:30 he weighed 204.7.  The water weight is really packing on this time!  I am praying his lungs stay clear as that caused a problem the last time. Here's some photos from this afternoon/evening:

Tim told the nurse that it is such a waste to lay in the bed all day!  Yet, he is so tired that he sleeps in the chair when he is out of the bed.

Vitals 15 minutes before receiving his 7th dose at 4 p.m.

Feeling a little refreshed after his nap.

Getting his port and lines behind some water proof covering so he can get a shower!

Feeling like a "new man" after his shower and waiting for the nurse to hook him back up to everything.

The highlight of the evening, a call from everyone at church on a speaker phone!  Thank you, church!  :D

Unfortunately, the diarrhea struck today!  It's lights out for us for the night!
