Good morning. I wish I could say Tami is home, but sadly she still resides in room 5002 at Dignity hospital. They have done a fine job, and Tami has received wonderful care, but she misses home. It appeared to be set for friday and her potassium was too low. Discharge seemed certain for saturday but her Hgb dropped again and she needed blood. Her discharge loomed tantalizingly close, yet one more hurdle appeared in the exit doorway. Her suction machine she would need for her PEG was incorrect, and in fact could cause harm. The Residents wanted her with the right equipment, and sadly that will not arrive until tuesday or wednesday. On a much happier note her energy and strength improved enough for her to get to the elevators and then the nurses station and back with a walker. Joy right now is missing. Your prayers are what got her to a wedding, a Thanksgiving, and now Christmas is on our holiday event horizon. We appreciate all of the prayers and well wishing that floods Tami’s way, and we pray that negative thought can be transformed. Spiritual warfare is real, but she is not an ordinary warrior. The fight is on, and we must overcome negativity, and focus on mercy and grace.
Ryne must realize the same. Prayers are being lifted, and he must continue to work when crawling seems such a long way home. Each day remains closer than the day before until, “there, on the horizon, is my destination”.
Thank you so much to the Foles. We came back from the hospital friday to pasta, garlic bread, salad, and cookies. You are greatly appreciated.
