Have you ever felt change was in the air but had no proof of it? That's where I am these days. Susan has decided to delay starting work on her doctorate because she sees her dad rapidly declining between her visits now. She wants to be available if we need her. She's a nurse living in Texas. She flys up for a few days about every six weeks.
I think it was last week Bob had five medical appointments. He had a lot of blood drawn for testing. I was surprised to receive calls from four of those offices expressing concern over the results of those tests.
His kidney function studies are not good, tests related to his heart are problematic. The one I'm most puzzled about is hematology.
The hematologist has asked that Bob have blood drawn on the 18th and see him on the 19th. That makes me very nervous.
In spite of it all Bob remains on his feet and moving. Next week we will see both the hematologist and the cardiologist. We will know more after we see them.
As a follow-up to yesterday's post I can now report that I am encouraged by action I'm seeing among younger evangelicals. Perhaps it is true they're a different stripe to the "old" evangelicals. I so hope that's true.
There surely must be a way to require candidates to be vetted before they can file to run for president. We do a thorough vetting of candidates for the Supreme Court, why not the same requirement for presidential candidates?
