Don's Surgery...

We are back home.. but not for a good reason! Don's platelet count was so low (50,000) they needed to give him a transfusion before the surgery. He needed 6 units - which they did not have at this hospital. They had to send to Houston for it .. and wait for it to thaw out before he could get it.. this would have been a 7 hour delay. Remember he could not have anything to eat or drink! So they rescheduled his surgery for tomorrow morning!

Funny thing.. I listened to a short sermon this morning .. about PATIENCE!

So frustrating, I'm sure. I'll keep praying.
