August 25th . . .
. . . Tex was loading up the truck. We were getting ready to go to one of our niece's birthday party. As I was walking out the door, her dad (Tex's oldest brother) called and told me they were getting ready to take my mother-in-law to the hospital.
I told him we were on our way and we'd see him at the ER.
The upshot is that she was diagnosed with West Nile virus.
It's been a long stretch - these past 13 days. There have been ups and there have been downs.
This is *not* the kind of roller coaster I like. Not one bit.
BUT. My mother-in-law is a woman of great faith. She is also loaded with grit, determination and tenacity.
Good, good, good . . . and good!
The doctors tell us that this illness does not present itself in just one specific way; the symptoms and complications can vary from patient-to-patient.
I am trusting Our Lord. This illness did not come as a surprise to Him.
I have faith that He is covering this entire situation . . . her, the family members, the medical team . . . everything and everyone. He's got it covered.
That's what I know . . . and that's what I'll go with.
Day-by-day and moment-by-moment.
Please keep this precious woman in your prayers.
Thank you so much.
