A Day of Chaos

We feel whipped!  Very little followed a straight line today.  We are working hard to get medical care arranged so Dan can have a wound dressing change Friday, the day after we arrive at our son’s in California.  And, packing, well…Dan has most of his done.  Me…I barely had time to fix meals. We ate lunch at 4 p.m., and dinner at 8:30 p.m.  But we did eat.  That’s more than many people in the world can say.

 Dan’s bandage began leaking about noon.  It is not thick enough.  I had to persuade the nurse to come take care of it.  She had to arrange “orders” from her supervisor to make the unscheduled trip here. Now, at midnight, the bandage is leaking again.  Tuesday, 9 December, Dan will have a C-T Scan that will keep him at the hospital for about 3 hours.  Then we rush to the Wound Care Dr. for her to inspect the wound, and put on a fresh dressing that is supposed to last until Friday. No packing will be done by me Tuesday.  We leave Texas Thursday noon.  Maybe Wednesday I can be invisible…and get the suitcase packed with what we actually need.

The highlights of the day were BIG bleslsings – Dan had such a good Bible study with the Monday night group in Sfantu Gheorghe, AND David had a short Bible study with Dan via Skype. AND,  Adolf sent photos of some of the school children who received their very own Hungarian Children’s Bible.  AND, Bart  Rybinski of Eastern European Missions, Vienna, wrote that they are busy working on translating the new Hungarian Children’s Bible!  (They will reserve copies for the children of Sfantu Gheorghe!!! )  We smile every time we think about this.

When you are in Jesus, every bad day has some good in it.   God does not abandon us.  Maybe we go far away from Him, but He is always waiting with open arms for us to come to Him.  —  Anne and Dan

    I just found this wonderful blog so now I can keep up with you two. You have a crowd of witnesses watching you through the arduous journey of trust and hope. You are teaching all of our how to make a journey like the one you are going through. I finally met Rosemarie a few week ago and got to talk to her for a few minutes. She is so interesting, and I can’t wait to be with her in Sfu. Gheorghe. As time gets closer to September you will have to tell us what to take and how we can ask others for needed items and some many details I know you want us to know before we go. I am so happy you are getting such excellent care from medics and family. God placed you there in the perfect place.
    Blessings, love and lots of prayers,
    Alva

    Dear Boyd Family,
    For some reason the link I used weeks ago did not result in your blog. Have been wondering how you are doing. I just saw the email from March 7. Larry is at home now, so I don’t see all of the mail if it isn’t marked “new”. Somehow missed seeing the reason for your staying in California. I know you have family there, but wondered about finding new doctors, etc. These are certainly challenging times for you and yours. We pray God’s richest blessings on you today and every day.

    I just discovered your website on yahoo and see that you’ve obtained some wonderful thoughts in this post. I particularly appreciate the way you’ve been able to stick so really much believed into a relatively short submit (comparitively) which creates it an thoughtful post on your topic. IMHO you set lots of good information in this submit not having all of the filler that most bloggers use just to make their posts look longer, that is ideal for a gal like me who doesn’t have a lot time trigger I’m generally within the go. I often get so frustrated with so many of the final outcomes in the main SE’s due to the fact they often seem to mostly be filled with filler content that frequently isn’t very sensible. If you don’t mind I’m going to add this post and your weblog to my delicious favorites so I can share it with my family. I appear forward to coming back to study your future posts too.

    What I love about blogs is which they spark an concept in my brain. When that happens, I really feel as I need to comment using the hope it may be interesting to some individuals. Because there are lots of blogs and forums with numerous points of view, they question your comprehension. It is at these moments when you have valuable insignt other people may not have had, together with the blogger him/herself. I find myself coming back again to to your writings only simply because you have a number of really great insights and also you’ve been at this a really long time, that is really inspiring and tells me you understand your stuff. Maintain triggering imagination in others!

    Hi Fellow Blogger, I am commenting from Sydney Australia. We have had a lot of rain lately and I’ve only just been able to connect to the web. Thanks so much for the interesting article. It inspired me a lot with my university human relations assignment 🙂
