Help Promised for Three Days

We’re thankful that TLC sent a good nurse today to take care of Dan’s wound.  She said she will be back Monday.  Someone is supposed to come Sunday.  It’s interesting that the Clinical Supervisor did not phone today even though the Office Mgr. said she would.  This morning, it only took me 30 minutes to add additional packing, and tape the 3 sides that had come loose in the night.  Soon after the nurse left this afternoon, Dan’s bandage shifted which caused him terrible pain.  He finally agreed to let me check the bandage shortly before dinner.  Sure enough, it only took 20 minutes to repair the loose tape…and the pain level went way down.  DUH!  

How is Dan? The sarcoma, fluid accumulation, and when the tape comes loose all cause Dan pain.  When the bandage does not support the large swollen area in Dan’s groin, that creates pain.  Having to lie still while I figure out how to bandage the unusual protrusion, makes Dan very tired.  Every day is a new experience, but the Lord helps us deal with each challenge.

The sun shone all day with temperature in the upper 60’s.  I  ran some errands – to Pacifica Market to purchase organic foods, then on to Safeway, then across the street to the health food store where I found cornstarch free baking powder!  Now, we can make hotcakes!!!

Tonight, the Scripture the Lord gave me is Mark 13:5-14:42.  There are several important messages in these passages.  But tonight my focus went to the fact that Jesus warns us to watch out for false teachers who say they come in the name of Jesus.  Again, we are reminded that we each have a personal responsibility to know and follow Truth. — Anne and Dan

    How wonderful “seeing” Dan again! Especially in the work Dan most enjoys . . . “Staying in God’s Word and teaching people God’s Word.” Indeed, Dan is right, God’s Word keeps us alive! In Matthew 4:4 (SEB), Jesus says this fact is true, “A person does not live on food alone. Instead, he lives on every word which comes from the mouth of God [Deuteronomy 8:31].” Dan speaks his faith! Keep on speaking your faith everyday, because God makes wonderful things come true when we speak His power into our daily lives.

    Love to you,
    Sherrie H.

    worship was beyong belief wonderful today. I know you will enjoy rick’s lesson on-line if you get the time, of which you have little to call your own. I pray the surgeon has a solution that will minimize Dan’s pain and stop that fluid retention. I think of you dailly and pray for you daily. I send you both and your children and grandchildren my love. I do not forget them when I pray.
