We are having trouble with the air conditioning unit here in our room - all visitors say it is warm in here. As I was lying in bed last night perspiring (remember ladies don't sweat) I was thinking about calling maintenance (no wonder I had a temp the previous night with that lovely turban wrap). Thankfully we have a personal fan from home to circulate the air. The nurses say, "That is a hot commodity around here.". My heart really goes out to the other patients who are warm as well.
But hey, I thought it was like a spa here. Maybe they are trying out the sauna setting on the dial. I laugh when I think of a Seinfeld episode with Kramer in a white towel in a sauna. I guess I am Kramer with staples across my head.
Praise God - Dave and I got a better night's sleep. The nurses only took vitals every 6-8 hours (yeah!). I guess I am "stable".
I am encouraged about the incision across my hairline. Dr. Forget did great! By the way, the OR room was awesome to see in action! I am so glad I was not "loopy" with the "happy juice". Very Cool!
I am not chomping at the bit to get the pathology results. I am at peace knowing that this is a tumor and if God brought us this far He will carry us farther in this potentially long journey. I know this is not me saying this but only by God's sovereign right hand holding me, precious Kate Snodgrass.
If you want a tangible way to serve...Dave loves his coffee in the morning and he is hungry at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
If you come to visit, there is a "Welcome" basket for hospital staff and visitors. Help yourself to the yummy treats! Many thanks to my "southern" friends at Covenant Christian School (CCS) and the Noltings for putting it together.
Thank you for commenting on the blog. Dave and I have been able to cry, laugh, and reminisce together - it has been very special to see who is reading and lifting us up in prayer (even during the night). I'm lovin' this BlackBerry - thank you to Dave's work.
