As we said yesterday, we share each small victory with all of you, our tribe.
To the four of us, a victory feels like a steady day. Little did we know how serious Mom’s condition was on Saturday. The drain they put in was of great importance to ridding her body of infection. Since the drain was placed, her blood pressure has regulated for the most part, her oxygen ratio has risen and data from the drainage is helping the doctors pin point her exact antibiotic needs. We are mindful she has a long way to go, but we are celebrating these small victories.
If we needed a reminder that the Lord was walking us through this journey, we got one this morning. Upon entered Kirk’s house to begin cleaning out his refrigerator and pantry, we realized his toaster oven was on and more than likely had been since January 5. Thank you Lord that in addition to dealing with the ramifications of Covid, we are not dealing with a house fire.
We enjoyed a delicious family dinner last night thanks to some dear friends who know some Halbrooks family favorites. Each day we continue to enjoy talking to Mom and find comfort in believing she is hearing our voices and our love.
For today, we offer prayers of thanksgiving for small victories, steady days and for the many ways He is carrying us through this storm.
