The girls and I will be leaving Dallas early this afternoon. It is going to be harder than I thought to leave Scott in the hospital. However, I am leaving him under the watchful eye and in the loving care of his parents. I am so thankful that they are healthy, able, and willing to take turns being in Dallas with Scott during the week so that the girls and I can get back in school.
Back in November, when we found out that Scott would be placed on the transplant list, his paperwork first went to Houston. At the time, WE thought that was great since Houston is 90 minutes from Lufkin. This is yet another example of how God has shown us His plan. Working through two of His Dallas angels, Dr. Kim (Couch) McMillin (my ACU roommate) and her father, Dr. Carl Couch, we found ourselves working with the wonderful people at the Dallas Transplant Institute and Baylor Hospital in Dallas.
This location will be easier for Scott’s parents during the week and the girls and I will travel back and forth on the weekends. Please continue to pray for Scott’s daily improvement and for travel safety for all of us as we come and go.
We have enjoyed hearing from all of you so much. Please continue to encourage Scott through this blog. He reads every comment.
To Keith and Kate, you are family now. We love you. Be careful going back to Longview. We hope to get our families together soon.
We love you all and appreciate your prayers so much.
