“Love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.
If we are afraid, it . . . shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.”

Adrian Phillips has been having problems with his heart and fluid. He was scheduled to possible come home today. Also, in his future, is open heart surgery. Pray for God to watch over this man and his family. His issues are his heart and his kidneys.
Mr. “Cete” Dillon should be released from North Oaks tomorrow. Thank God that Mr. “Cete”s problem was addressed and handled in such a timely way.
We’re are home after three days at Ochsner. A nurse practitioner listened and acted quickly when David had too much fluid in his body. David was given medication until this afternoon to remove the fluid. We are very tired, but thankful and home at last. He also got his 20th unit of blood Monday afternoon. We are so appreciative of those who have helped him.
Thanks so much for praying for these three men and all the others you added to these three names. You are appreciated!
As you have probably already figured out, David did not get to go home this morning. He still has some fluid to have removed. David feels better with the blood he received (20th unit) and the fluid loss from his body (2+ liters).
He’s eating well and took his walker for a round or two in the hallways. As more tests are done, we will learn more about going home tomorrow.
Please keep praying for David and those caring for him. Also, please pray for Mr. “Cete” Dillon and Mr. Adrian Phillips, who are both hospitalized at North Oaks.
As you pray for these three men, please also make an effort to contact someone to check on them and to pray for them.
I appreciate Facebook posts by Jeff Van and others. Jeff pastors in McComb. His grandmother and my mother were first cousins, so that makes us . . “kin”. This is Jeff’s post for today which I have paraphrased.
There is not enough room in your heart for worry and faith, so you have to choose which one rules your life each day.
This morning I wrote about the Monday ride to Baton Rouge. Our ride didn’t end with us at home tonight. We are in room 206 at Ochsner.
David’s body has had several battles going on. Today, he got a unit of blood and is ridding his body of too much fluid.
God has continued to walk this journey with us. He also allowed my sister, Julie, and David’s niece, Leesha, to be very helpful to us today.
The doctors have a plan for us to go home tomorrow. I’m waiting to see what God’s plans are. Whatever that is, we choose to follow Him!
I’m not sure when I will write again. Pray for God’s will for our lives.
“The LORD watches over all who love him.”
~Psalm 145:20 NIV~
I remember watching the Monday morning march with Buckskin Bill from Baton Rouge. David and I now have a Monday morning ride to Baton Rouge. Today, we meet my sister, Julie, in Ponchatoula so she can do some driving for us. God had certainly been watching over us as we have traveled many medical miles in the last couple of years. Thankfully, He has been with us all the way on this journey.

I’m going to stop now because of the weather. Maybe the satellite will work. May this be a reminder to pray today and to prepare for the Lord’s Day!

Dolly Frazier‘s eye surgery went well yesterday. She will have a second eye surgery in two weeks. Pray all goes well.
David saw a liver specialist yesterday. Despite all his problems, she said the liver has improved since January. This was good news. The next visit there will be in three months.
