Saturday Rest

December 11, 2010

Mark’s kidneys are working so well that his system is flushing out a lot of his IV antibiotic. His doctor has upped his dosage again. Only they have increased timing from twice a day to three times a day. So at 6am, 2pm and 10pm I am infusing Mark with his medicines. It is a little hard on him since he would normally be asleep or trying to sleep at two of those times.
The good news today is that Mark is feeling so much better that he wanted to go to church tonight. The bad news was that he really wanted to go. It is a little confusing not to be able to have visitors and still go somewhere other than a doctor’s appointment. So he is feeling better but can’t be hugged by well meaning friends, exposed to seasonal viruses and really can’t have visitors. This is the hard part of getting well. It is only for a little while.
I took the day off (if you can call it that) and sat on the couch for most of the day. I felt like I was getting a cold so I left all those little things like laundry until tomorrow. God bless you all and thank you for your prayers!  Kristina

    Kristina, I don’t live far – you could put your laundry outside so I could pick it up, do it for ya and drop it back to you. If you need anything from the store but don’t feel like going – please call…
    God bless you and Pastor Mark!
