UPDATE: What a glorious weekend!
After dialysis on Friday, we were able to make it up to NW IN to spend the Easter weekend with Paul’s family (we are spending next weekend with my family down here in Indy for Easter – we are truly blessed)!
Today, Paul went to dialysis and talked with the doctor. After he took his labs, he told Paul that they will look at the lab results on Wednesday. If the numbers are still trending down, they will stop the dialysis and Paul will not need to come in on Wednesday.
The protocol is to continue with weekly labs for a couple of weeks to ensure the numbers continue to improve before removing the port. The good news is that we are getting so much closer.
Truly – we cannot thank everyone enough for all of your prayers & support!!
We are blessed to have a busy few days while waiting for the lab results.
- Paulie has RE tonight (that used to be called CCD, now its RE – Religious Education. I have also heard it called REPS – religious education for public school kids)
- Paul has PT on Tuesday (& Thursday)
- Paulie has baseball practice on Tuesday & Thursday – weather permitting. He has pictures on Saturday & his first game on Sunday
- My family is coming in town, so that means washing sheets, cleaning bathrooms & going grocery shopping
We are so amazingly blessed!
I wanted to share today’s Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young:
BRING ME THE SACRIFICE of thanksgiving. Take nothing for granted, not even the rising of the sun. Before Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden, thankfulness was as natural as breathing. Satan’s temptation involved pointing Eve to the one thing that was forbidden her. The Garden was filled with luscious, desirable fruits, but Eve focused on the one fruit she couldn’t have rather than being thankful for the many good things freely available. This negative focus darkened her mind, and she succumbed to temptation.
When you focus on what you don’t have or on situations that displease you, your mind also becomes darkened. You take for granted life, salvation, sunshine, flowers, and countless other gifts from Me. You look for what is wrong and refuse to enjoy life until that is “fixed.”
When you approach Me with thanksgiving, the Light of My Presence pours into you, transforming you through and through. Walk in the Light with Me by practicing the discipline of thanksgiving.
I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
We will keep our eyes on the blessings. We have so very many blessings to be thankful for! Praising God for His Amazing Grace!
