BUT, as we too well know, 'life and well being' is at the top of the priority over 'things and stuff'... so whilst Francis pulls up carpet, moves book shelves and takes on the roll of provider, I shall pop and get the girls from school in an hours time, then head back to pick up Sam from hospital, where he was left having his last IV antifungal infusion with our friend. He is coming home on a reduced amount of TPN as his enteral feeds are now up to 45 ml/hour.... THIS is amazing! We talked yesterday to the gastro team about carrying on increasing his enteral feeds so that hopefully soon he won't even need to be on TPN....and this PICC line he currently has could serve him til then and he may not need another central line.... that would be totally miraculous and also totally plausible as we know the impossible can happen - we've seen it, we believe it, as we know God can do anything. I read in Proverbs 25 yesterday, 'It is God's privilege to conceal things and the king's privilege to discover them' and it leapt off the page at me..... I'm so glad that I don't know what is up ahead, as I would have been stressed yesterday about plumbing bills and for what? Also if we had known what Sam would have bought to our lives (the good and the tough) would we have coped? Would we have been wise enough to know what was good for us? I know we wouldn't have.... so I actually took great comfort in those words, knowing that things are concealed to us, but not to God.
Again we have been inundated by kindness, meals and well wishes....and I'm off to hang with one of these lovely people....and make use of her toilet in the absence of ours!
