Cath Postponed AGAIN

It's a long story, but the short version is Drew started coughing yesterday after being healthy & very careful for two weeks. We called UCSF this morning and they said to bring him in and they'd check him out. We were admitted, sitting in a room on 7N, had vitals taken and filling out paperwork when a doctor came in and said if he's sick at all we can't do the cath. Hmm, sure would have been nice if you said that when we called this morning before we drove here. Anyway, emotions are high, but we're headed home and will probably be taking him to the doctor today or tomorrow. More later. Oh, we also got a parking ticket as we were walking to the car after breaking our fast with Drew in SF.

OMG... I'm sooooo sorry Andrea! How frustrating to get all emotionally prepared and then have that happen. That's unreal! I've been praying for you all morning, so maybe there's a reason God delayed it. Who knows. Let me know if there's anything we can do!

Ugh, I can't believe it. I am sure you'll come to terms with this by tomorrow but how absolutely crapola. My emotions run high just imagining. The ticket is just one more frustration.

I am so sorry Andrea. It must be such a pain to have to deal with this on a continuous basis. I hope he starts to feel better soon.

Oh my heart is just aching for you. I do have to tell you what was in Tommy's prayers tonight just before reading this. I was telling him that Drew was in the hospital and we need to pray for his heart and this is what he said. "Jesus help me to remember to pray for Drew everyday because he does not need praying just on this same day but everyday" Maybe he knew that this surgery was not happening today or something? I will continue to follow Tommy's lead and pray everyday for you and your family and for the super bad Karma guy who gave you the ticket too!! God Bless

And so the roller coaster continues...up, down and loop-to-loop! Only bummer is that no one asked for the ride! Only good thing is that we are all on the ride with you and you are never alone. We'll all hold our breath as we climb together to the next hill to see what awaits us on the next dive.

However, with all analogies aside, I truly am sorry for this emotional whirlwind. Know that I am here 24-7 to talk, scream, cry, pray or whatever. God is still in control...and we are still human. it's never easy to face dissappointment or fear. And our enemy is a big fat pig for kicking you while you are down with that stupid parking ticket! man he hacks me off!!!!
Love you deeply kiddo and I'll talk to you soon.
