Goosebumps - God Provides
This afternoon, the doctors here in CA have pinpointed a rather uncommon virus in David that is found in Ohio and the northeast. (Which means he contracted it before we left home.)
Providentially, the infectious disease doctor here in Redding did his residency in Akron and his major professor is the ultimate authority in the US on this virus. The doctor called his professor back in Ohio and consulted with him on David's case. According to the doctor today, David was so sick when he came into the emergency room that he had a 1-in-5 chance of dying before they could get his various "issues" under control. Praise the Lord, He guided us to just the right hospital with just the right doctor who could get us the answers we needed!
Just had to share the praise report. It's possible that they'll release David tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday, but the doctor wants him to rest up in the hotel for a couple of days before he attempts a flight. He said David will still feel pretty sick for at least a couple of weeks. At least he can recuperate at home. The doctor here wants him to follow up with the infectious disease doctor back in Ohio when we get back.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers! They truly made a difference.
Love to all,
