Dear Pilgrim Pals:
Carol returned from Toronto yesterday afternoon following her tests at the hospital. We won't know the results for a few days. She was afraid that she wouldn't be able to complete the stress test due to some medical concerns but she did. THANK YOU so much for your prayers, dear friends. We'll keep you posted.
Two days ago I noticed that my right elbow had become very swollen, sore and very "hot" to touch. Last night it was much worse and when I showed it to Carol she insisted that I go to the emergency ward at the hospital in Peterborough.
The doctor diagnosed my elbow as having bursitis (swollen bursa sac) with infection (cellulitis). This is my third battle with cellulitis in the last two years.
They administered the anti-biotics intravenously last night and I have to go back tonight and tomorrow night for more treatments. Then they'll decide whether I can begin taking them orally. Yesterday I was so tired I could hardly cope. They told me that the infection would have led to that.
Thanks so much for praying over the next few days, dear friends. This morning we are leaving to pick up Nathan at Joy Bible Camp. Please pray for a good, safe trip. THANKS!
What a joy to have such a wonderful fellowship of committed pilgrims to pray with!
Pilot Mom, I'm so glad that Pilot has arrived. Have a wonderful time with him!
Enjoy the weekend, my friends. We continue to pray for your mother, Bob!
