That’s the look of our little guy early this morning. Many have asked…so here you go with an update…
Andrew is hanging tough. He had a decent night’s sleep. The oxygen nose piece didn’t want to stay in place and popped out quite a bit, but overall he slept ok. He will have the epidural taken out later this morning. He must be able to urinate before they will let him go home. If he does so and he can handle the pain, he’ll come home later this afternoon…most likely after 3 pm. That’ll put them in to Wilkesboro around 7ish with a couple of stops, Lord willing.
So, if you will…pray that all goes well and he’ll be able to come home this evening. If for some reason that doesn’t work out, he’ll come home tomorrow, Lord willing.
Thanks for asking about me. I’m feeling MUCH better! Tough way to lose another 5 lbs, I’ll tell you that! 🙂 My mom brought chicken and dumplings last night and I ate two bowls full! Yum! Yum! Katy, Kandace and Clara are all well too. I worked like a dog early in the week to get the sermon done and so that’s no wearing on my mind. I’ve always been taught not to procrastinate. So, I procrastinate about NOTHING. I never have and I never will. I can’t stand it. If there is something that needs to be done, then just bear down and get it done and then you can take that off your mind.
Sometimes people tell me, “Kevin, you need to rest. Take a break.” Well, I will, when I can get everything done! 🙂 If I don’t have the major things done, then I can’t relax knowing that I don’t have, say, the sermon done. But, knowing it’s done and all the visiting of the hospitals is handled for the week and that the Deacons and Pastor Brad have everything else covered is a blessing. Thanks to everyone for all you’ve done this week to help our family! We’re blessed!
One last thought…
I was thinking about Andrew and Pam coming home later today (hopefully) and I was thinking about the homecoming that will be. You say, “They’ve only been gone for three days.” I know, I know. But, you know how it is when your family is not all intact and together. You want everyone to be together. Well…the truth is as wonderful as these homecomings here on earth are…they are nothing to compare to our homecoming in heaven.
I thought about our Father in heaven this morning. I thought about the desire He has to have us all home with Him…in His house…the Father’s house. How He must long for that…just as I long for Pam and Andrew to be home later today. Enjoy your family. Give them a hug today. A real hug. I mean a hug that’s so strong that they feel it. You know what I mean…a “bear hug” that’s so tight they say, “Wow! What a hug! Why are you hugging me so tight?” And you say, “Because I love you and I really want you to know it!” Then kiss them on the cheek and say, “I thank the Lord for you!” And you know what…it’ll be better than anything that you could have done today. 🙂
Blessings to you all!!
