ER Visit

Goodness and bless his heart and I am talking about Pat.  We had an ER visit this morning, but actually packed a bag last night as we were heading out the door about 10 PM, but his pain subsided so we stayed home and he slept through the night just fine.  He had severe stomach pain and my prayer was that it was not related to the cancer.  After blood tests and CT they said he was having some intestinal issues and doesn't appear to be related to the cancer or chemo.  He is still not feeling very well, but hopefully tomorrow will be a brand new, pain free day.

My family has another prayer request.  My dad's brother Mark (some call him James) fell off of a horse and broke his foot, six plus ribs and now has a collapsed lung and pneumonia. He is in critical condition in Tyler.  He is daddy's little brother who has been battling Parkinson for several years. As you know Uncle Mark, we McNatts are tight and we are pulling for you. I know that you are in good hands and have some great nurses around you.  I too know that you love the Lord and He is hearing every prayer and plea for your healing.  Aunt Judy, Jennifer, Jessica, Michael and the gang, please know that we are praying and I would love to be able to come and give you a big hug.  Friends and family, I asked that you  join us in praying for his completely healing.

Garrett is home from camp!  Yay!  I haven't seen my big little one since Sunday, July 17th.  I think he grew while he was gone and I know that he has more facial hair than I remember! 

Oh, have to tell you how awesome my God is.  Everyday I read from my 365 Bible and this is what I read in the old testament. After we got up this morning we were waiting around to see how Pat was feeling, so I was able to sit in my chair, open my Bible and read this:

1 Chronicles 20  vs 15 "Do not be afraid!  Don't be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God's...vs 17 But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions then stand still and watch the Lord's victory. Do not be afraid or discouraged.  Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you. vs 20 Believe in the Lord your God and you will be able to stand firm.  vs 21 Give thanks to the Lord, his faithful love endures forever."

What other word could He have possibly given me?  It was His promise to me as He new what this day would hold and He was going before us.  By the time this morning came around and watching Pat in such pain, I had no idea what we were facing and we were both confused as to what to do next. I could do was just wait on the Lord to show us.  I had to grin that he used Chronicles to speak to me as my A.D.D. takes over when reading the Old Testament at times! 

As I close, Pat's stomach issues are not resolved, so I ask that you pray with me. 

Thank you for loving on us!
