Today I made the difficult decision to let my husband leave without taking me with him--totally against his wishes. He went to WV to support his family. Dealing with my struggle with this hateful disease, Multiple Sclerosis, I suffer severely from the heat and not being able to get inside in the air conditioning when I get hot. In WV most places don't have AC, and I just came back from visiting them and took two days to recuperate from the exhaustion and pain I experienced, so I chose to let him go without me. I did this not only so I would not suffer pain, but so he could concentrate fully on his brother and on the rest of his family's needs. TR needed to be with his family while Susi, his sister-in-law, had brain surgery. This has been a difficult time for the whole family--I cannot imagine what Susi is going though, although I take comfort that she is a child of the King and has a faith that is helping her through all the difficult stuff and will help her continue to be strong. I pray daily--constantly these days--for peace through all this and for the best outcome for her surgery. Susi has a good surgeon and a wonderful neurologist, but she also has the best "Great Physician" looking after her spiritual soul as well as her physical body. She is in good hands and I praise the Lord for that!
