More drama

For family following Fred's health, we have more drama. Last week he was having severe abdominal pain and went to our family doctor. A stat CT scan was ordered and he went to the hospital. Of course, no dental appliance could be seen. The best test for that would be an MRI, but our insurance won't pay for it. But the radiologist did see evidence of the appliance because Fred has an intestinal infection. The doctor ordered heavy duty antibiotics. What next? No one seems to be able to predict, or even guess, the outcome of this event. Fred presses on, working and doing all he has to do. He has lost a lot of weight and looks very thin.

As for me, I pray and trust. Fred is in God's hands. I went out to the garden with the earth radiating heat from our 103 degree day and spent a couple of hours picking beans. Life goes on.
