Update about hubby
I'll be back a little later but I did want to let you know what is happening after my husband's fall night before last.
The local VA Clinic had us go to the VA Hospital (a long drive but they have the necessary equipment). The drive there was pleasant as we passed many windmill farms which have been built in the prairie areas. Fascinating to view!
By the time we drove home, the heat index was well over 100, we were tired, and there was a lot of construction on the highways (it IS still construction season, isn't it?). Gosh were we glad to finally pull up in our driveway. Our air conditioner cannot work but it was cooler than the outdoors because we are surrounded by trees.
So... the news was not so good. He has a compound fracture of his collar bone. He was given a sling to keep his arm and shoulder still but otherwise he is to stay on pain medication for a couple of weeks and to keep STILL. Right, hehehe... At least the pain is helping him remain still right now, we will see how long that lasts when he starts feeling a little better.
He's also very, very discouraged. He had budgeted the income from his two weeks working at the bookstore and he was only able to get one day of work in before falling. He says it is like God keeps peeling his fingers off trying to control life and is (trying) to get us to depend on Him. Sigh...
Thank you for your prayers, my friends.
