Home from the Hospital

We brought Christine home form the hospital today.

We got a call this evening with the definitive diagnosis …an acute attack of Epstein Baar virus (infectious mononucleosis) aggravated by a bacterial infection. Quite a cocktail. We are relieved that it is nothing more serious in the long haul and are glad to have her under our roof as she begins what will be a gradual recovery.

We’re appreciative for the many who prayed. We began the week with considerable anxiety. But as I wrote to CRM folks in an email on Tuesday: “It seems obvious that folks have been praying. There is a settledness that has rested on us, and even in the hospital room, that was not there yesterday. We’re grateful.”

    Isn’t it amazing the way the prayers of God’s people releases God’s power to sustain us through such times! God’s amazing Grace in action! We can’t tell you how relieved we are that it was nothing more serious! We are rejoicing with you and pray for a quick recovery for Christy!

    Love to all of you,
