Friday, Jan 6th – update on Kent

Well, I already wrote this blog once and it vanished into cyberspace! If it reappears, you will see two posts about the same date. Computers keep me feeling humble – and, at times, stupid!

Kent’s improvement is measured in very small increments, but it is there. He looks and feels generally much better, although he is still remarkably weak. The doctors have started the process of weaning him off of IV steroids by giving him a slightly lesser dosage in pill form. If he tolerates this, he could be sent home to finish recovery there, still closely monitored by doctor visits. We have been told that insurance companies and medicare apply great pressure to doctors to release patients quickly, but I think that our doctors are very patient oriented, and would not knowingly send Kent home early. So please continue praying that they would have the wisdom to know when it is safe to send him home. He is resting better and getting more sleep – thank you.

It is amazing to me to think back at the stress of 3 days ago, and realize how God has orchestrated events so that this hospitalization has been so positive. Every single staff member who has entered Kent’s room has been encouraging and caring. He has had excellent care, and been surrounded by sweet staff and wonderful friends and family. The whole thing changes when God’s people start praying earnestly, and we have been the recipients of that power. We are so thankful. Strong prayer is spiritual work, and to say “thank you” seems so simple. But be assured that you, too, are brought to God’s throne by us, with grateful hearts. We pray that God would richly bless you with all of the promises that He gives to those who pray – and there are many.

Well, it’s time to go, but I will talk to you again tomorrow with any news. Love In Him, Davidene
