These kind of days are not my favorite but we must receive them with the "smooth" ones as well!! Andrew (12) has had trouble breathing and some wheezing for about 3 days. Last night I watched him sleep until about 4:00 am because he was so overcome with fear. It made me mad that the enemy was torturing Andrew with such thoughts and making him fearful that something was terribly wrong with him. I tried to share with Andrew how we have to battle the enemy with the truth. I think through this Andrew has been made more aware of the spiritual battle that we will face. Anyway, I was able to get a appointment at 9:00 this morning and we were late because of the torrential rain. His diagnoses was upper respiratory infection/ bronchitis. In our 20 years of child sickness, this is the first one of these, so that is good and it is something to be thankful for in the midst. His saturations were 87, so he is pretty clogged up, good sats are at 98. How well that "lingo" brings back memories with Joel, all the machines monitoring this and that on his little body. I had to once again sit just about on the same chair that I held Joel in waiting for Andrew to get his lab work done.....it hurts so bad!!!!! Places and things that he went and touched is ever present and I am glad for the memories yet they make my mind visit back to a little boy that was sick and in just a month previously he was going so strong. I just have to bow to the "plans"and say "thy will be done" and thank the Lord for his wonderful life that I got to be apart of!! We did two breathing treatments at the office and was brought up to a 90. I had to rent one of those nebulizer machines and he is taking some antibiotics, so Lord willing he will start clearing out soon. If you think to, pray the Lord would use these means to work on those bronchial tubes and open them up! Ok, the next item that was not very good news is the van.....the mechanic put the engine in and it is not an engine that works!!! So now he will take that one out and seek out another one to put in. The last little news is not terrible by any means but I did have to drive two hours round trip to take Terry and the boys a tool they needed on the job. So it has been a busy day and its only early afternoon! I think I need a nap since I was up so late or early!! :0
