My wonderful husband Daniel has been under the weather for a couple months...more tired, loss of appetite, not feeling great. We didn't think too much of it because that is common here with the different parasites.
The past week, he got a fever, had night sweats, and started feeling worse.
Then the past few days, he got worse and worse...he could no longer eat or drink anything, had pain in his stomach, felt a ball in there, and due to not eating and being dehydrated, was very, very sick and weak.
The doctors treated him for food poisoning at first, though he didn't really have those signs.
Today, he went to the hospital and they ran more tests and said that his gallbladder is completely plugged and they are basically 100 % sure it is cancer.
He has to have emergency surgery right now; we'll know more after they get inside him.
I'm at home with our 11 children by ourselves right now. The hospital is in the next town.
I know whatever it is, the Lord has allowed it and will use it for good and His glory. Sometimes I just know it in my head and at times he gives me the peace that passes all understanding.
*The Lord will heal him
*The Lord will strengthen Daniel's weak body for this surgery
*Wisdom for the doctors as they do this surgery and diagnosis
*Wisdom for me in finding someone to watch the children so I can see Daniel (children aren't allowed in the hospitals here)
*Wisdom, grace and strength for us right now
I am so sad and scared, and although I don't know what the future holds, I know who the One who does. I am just wanting to crawl up in the Lord's lap right now and cry out to Him. Daniel is not here with us right now...but I know the Lord is.
I will update as I can and know more.
Thank you all so much for your comments and prayers and love. The Lord is so good and faithful. We hurt but praise Him.
