At about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning we took Wayne into the ER with a temperature of 102.4. The doctors and nurses worked to bring down the temperature, drew blood for the lab work and took x-rays that was eventually diagnosed as being pneumonia. With this diagnosis, they admitted him into the the hospital. Later in the morning they did several more tests, and eventually did a CT scan. The scan indicates the cancer has spread throughout the right lung and several new tumors in the left lung. Yesterday he had a procedure done to put in a drain tube to remove the fluid that has developed in the right lung that was causing immense pressure on his heart and shortness of breath. His oxygen levels were very low. The doctor was able to take off enough fluid to relieve the pressure, and the drainage tube will remain. We anticipate Wayne coming home from the hospital tomorrow (Sunday) morning. At this time we have arranged for home health and hospice care. Wayne called from the hospital this morning asking for his shaving kit, so we know he is feeling a bit better!
Thank you to each and everyone for your love and prayers. "GOD is still on the throne and prayer changes things!"
Thank you for praying!!
1 John 5:14-15 NASB
This is the confidence which we have before Him,
that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask,
we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
Praying and praying!!
