My Husband Rocks

I am sporting my favorite t-shirt, "MY HUSBAND ROCKS"!
Pat had a rough night last night and was up at 12, 2 & 3 and then slept until about 6.  Mid morning he had the fluid around his lung drained and they drained about a liter.  He started feeling better and that lasted until about 3 this afternoon.  This evening he is still fighting nausea and stomach pain and all of the yucky symptoms that go with that.  We need to get control of this and that is our goal right now.  They did send a sample of the fluids from his lungs to the lab to be tested and that will be a couple of days before we get those results.
He is a sick puppy and we just want him to feel good.  He can't keep his food down, but he is able to drink the Boost protein drink.
Plaza Medical is a wonderful hospital with great nurses and doctors.  It is definitely our hospital of choice.  We are so thankful to Greg Haralson, our friend, who has arranged such wonderful care here at Plaza for Pat.  It is not what you know, but who you know.  We are blessed to have Greg and Alison in our life group and they have walked this journey with us now for four years. 
We are blessed to have so many friends out there loving on us and praying for us.  It sounds cliche and I say it all of the time, but we truly could not walk this without you.
We have had a setback, but I do know that God has gone before us by directing us to this hospital and providing good doctors.  One of our nurses we met, DeDe, lives in Burleson and has walked this journey with her husband, so the Lord put someone in our path who is a believer that can encourage us, take wonderful care of Pat and she lives in our hometown.   
This scripture I read today, "But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.  They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit." Jeremiah 17:7-8
