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
