News Of Pilot-dad
Just when you think everything is finally looking up, the ceiling seems to cave in on you. If you would, please pray for Jim. Last evening I had to run him up to the Insta-Care place (not the ER) because of vertigo. He had experienced it since yesterday morning but I had been out running errands etc, and didn't get home until late afternoon. Poor guy. He was so nauseated from the world spinning around out of control.
The doctor said he would treat the symptoms but to expect it to last 3 or 4 days. Why the inflammation has happened is anyone's guess. He told us to be sure to alert our oncologist, Dr. H. The doc last night gave him a shot of phenagren to help with the nausea and then sent him home with dramamine for today. He wasn't able to go in last night. In fact, he went right to bed when we got home and slept through the night...well, until he asked if I was awake at 4:00 am. He had a dream to tell me about. Of all things!!! *wink* Thankfully, I was able to go back to sleep, as was he.
He is still having the vertigo today so he took the dramamine which, of course, knocks him out. So he has been sleeping all afternoon. I do not know if he will go in for work tonight. I rather doubt it. However, he does have a very important work meeting that he needs to attend tonight...erm...this morning at 12:30 am. I may be driving him to that and then bringing him home after the meeting.
When, oh when, will this roller coaster end?!?! We are both so weary of this up and down yo-yo syndrome we seem to be on. Poor guy. He manages to work one week and a couple of days and then he is hit again. Just like before.
I know that the God, Who is determined to have a relationship with us, and is determined to mold and shape us into the image of Christ, Who loves us unconditionally has a purpose but I, for one, am ready to move on to other areas which may need some tweeking here and there.
I know that He knows that we need some $$$ coming in. I also know that He will meet our needs. Without fail. All I need to do is look back on all the many times in our past He has never failed to care for us.
Again, I have to look at His sufficiency and rest.
He did go into work. I drove him and will pick him up at 2:00 am. Still having bouts of the vertigo but he took his med to work with him. We'll see how it goes.
