The nature photos are from the ambling walk I took yesterday evening after dinner (chicken parmesan) and Rich had fallen asleep on the couch….

Worry weighs a person down, an encouraging word cheers a person up.  Proverbs 12:25

Good afternoon!  This is the first chance I’ve had to sit and blog today because first thing this morning Sarah, Seth, and I got ready and went to another one of Sarah’s follow up appointments for her kidney.  Remember last year she had surgery?  Well, I am happy to report that after an ultrasound today on her kidney everything looks great and they don’t need to see her in the office again for a year.  (She will be taking a 24 hour urine collection test next month to see if we have been able to increase her water intake and her citrates.  But they will call with the results).  We are praising God for this news!

Isn’t it fun when you’re put in an exam room and left to wait and wait?  No, we didn’t think so, either.  But we did read a book and color and count the change in my purse and that was sort of fun.

As soon as the doctor came in Sarah became anxious, had a threatening face, slapped a high five as hard as she could, and HISSED.  The man said he used to be a marine and he could take it and was very patient with Sarah.  Sarah was a little less anxious when the women came in.  (She had three appointments back to back; radiology, nephrology, and urology).  It was interesting to see that she still had some fears lingering from her lengthy experience a year ago, but all in all she did very well today and of course any doctor’s appointment with “no shots” is a good one in her book.

Visiting the gift shop is always a treat after her appointments.  They each picked out a fidget spinner.

And then we ate lunch downstairs in the cafeteria where Sarah got a hamburger, Seth a slice of pizza, and myself a salad.

Last but not least, a stop at the store and then at the farm stand to get a dozen ears of corn, “Corn AGAIN?” Sarah asked.  Yes, I’ll be buying it constantly while it’s in season!  It’s so good this time of year.

“He shall feed his flock like a shepherd;  he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.”  Isaiah 40:11

“It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace.”  Hebrews 13:9

HE LOVES YOU!

    1. Thank you! And yes, we were all so relieved. She’s shown no symptoms but these things can be “silent” so it’s such a blessing to see that she’s healed well. 🙂
