Home again

with 2 comments

Dave is home again. His temperature started to go up a little this evening. I had that sinking feeling that perhaps he would be returning again very shortly. However it has gone back to normal:-)

I am not sure if any real conclusion was reached about the headaches. Some of the medical staff thought that the headaches were caused by sinus problems, but the specialist did not. However the headaches have gone and there was nothing on the CAT scan to warrant further action.

Sam (15 years) started a “real” temporary job today. I say “real” because it wasn’t a paper-round, it was an 8 hour day job. Our advice to him was be polite, don’t listen to your ipod and turn off your cellphone unless you are on a break. He came home and said it was good advice; some of the other temporary workers had been told off for listening to ipods.

While I was folding pamphlets today, I listened on my ipod to a sermon by John Piper. I’m allowed to listen to my ipod;-) “When you have tasted the beauty of God and the approval of God in Christ, the addiction to human approval is broken. And you are free.”
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

When I visited Dave today he was having an animated conversation with someone else’s visitor. So I knew that he was on the mend from the infection. He had another headache last night but it was shorter and of lesser intensity. He had a good night’s sleep. He is hopeful of getting home on Tuesday or Wednesday.
