In the dark dreary nights, when the storm is at its most fierce, the lighthouse burns bright so the sailors can find their way home again. In life the same light burns. This light is fueled with love, faith, and hope. and through life's most fierce storms these three burn their brightest so we also can find our way home again...
There is much to think about when you are out in the middle of a storm in the wee hours of the morning...
Last week, on Friday......Sam began having problems and not feeling very well...."Kidney Stone!" Yes, it was a kidney stone! He was sick all day Friday...all day Saturday and then on Sunday morning, he was better! Or so we thought!
On Monday of this week, he was back home from work by 9:00 in the morning, and he was in pain. He called the urologist and the nurse advised him to drink lots and lots of fluids all day long and that he probably would pass the stone....(Of course, she did not know that Sam's bladder was completely blocked and unable to empty)
It was windy all day long and were expecting storms with heavy down pours....This was what the weather forecast was calling for....
Around 7:00 p.m. Sam decided that the pain was too great and that he needed to go on to the ER..
Of course, as we get in the car, it starts to drizzle and the skies were looking dark. I drove him to the hospital, only to find that the ER was totally packed!!
Every seat was filled and people were even standing outside. Sam immediately told me just to turn around because he was not staying....he said he would try to drink more fluids and wait for the stone to pass (we did not know the bladder was blocked either)....finally, we were safe and sound at home!
And then it hit!! I was awakened around 3:30 by the loud noise of thunder clapping all around us..
The Storm was Hitting!!! And wouldn't you know it? Sam was up and dressed.....He said we had to go to the hospital!! In the car we went, and I spent the next 30 minutes, driving in heavy down pours and heavy winds....The storms were here and would hang around all day long.
I was more than nervous, but I knew he had to get some help. His bladder was totally blocked! He was almost screaming in pain by this time.... By 11:00 a.m. he was in surgery to remove the stone.
It was a large stone and it was lodged in the
Around 2:00 he was out of surgery and in recovery. We finally made it home around 6:00 this afternoon. Praise the Lord!
Sam is in bed (sleeping) and he is feeling much, much better.....
God is with us even in the storms and I give Him glory, for keeping us safe and for giving Sam the strength that he needed to endure all that he has had to go through....
See y'all tomorrow!
