I am writing this from the 4th floor, in the quiet of a regular hospital room, full of the peace of God. After three days, Bob got moved out of ICU Sunday afternoon. He is doing so much better now. We are all amazed at the way he has pulled through, and give all the glory to God continuously.
I have lost track of time with everything that has gone on, and the flurry of activity of nurses, doctors and specialists in and out. So now I need to update all of you wonderful praying friends. Mary, Esther, Ruthie, Elijah and John all returned home yesterday. We are all so grateful that they were able to come and that we had this time together.
The doctor says that Bob's liver, heart, kidneys, and blood count looks good. His blood pressure is up also. Now we can concentrate on his recovery from his 2 major surgeries.
The initial 3 days of recuperation has stretched to a couple weeks, and in a week or so we are expecting to be able to return home to Naknek. We don't want to rush this part, as there only a clinic in Naknek. I am so grateful to the Lord for bringing us through this crisis and giving Bob back to us. The doctor has ordered a month of recuperation at home, and God has already provided Stan & Chris Swan from Oklahoma to fill in for him at KAKN. Thank you so much for all of your prayers!
A verse that the Lord gave me through friends who came to pray with me that first eventful night on Thursday, is, "Let not your heart be troubled, believe in God; believe also in me.". John 14:1. Jesus is my refuge, an ever-present help in trouble, and I praise His holy name.
