Tomorrow the therapists want me with them so that I can see exercises that I will do with Carol at home. So there will be a few hours of training for Carol and me tomorrow. For the next month Carol will need all 3 therapies three days a week, right in Temecula though.
You can tell Carol is more herself today and ready to come home: she was in Homeschool Mom mode, asking the girls about anatomy questions, French, history essay, Shakespeare drama, etc. I can just see Carol next week with all the girls around her on her bed while she reads and asks comprehension questions. And yes, the Dr. did mandate breaks for Carol during morning and afternoon to let her rest. But therapists and Dr seem happy to let Carol do as much as she desires next week.
Spiritually, Carol is doing well. I had a full day yesterday of squabbling, selfish pre-teens and was worn out when I phoned Carol last night. Carol sweetly prayed for me. Still had squabbling, selfish pre-teens this morning, but I was feeling better :)
I'm continuing to squeeze sermon prep on the Gospel of Luke into the brief openings of the day. This intermittent Bible study brings such refreshment that it is like fortified mini-meals throughout the day. And the Book of Isaiah continues to steady my heart and mind and spirit over this month. Isaiah 26:4 Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. -Pastor Craig
