He turned a corner yesterday afternoon that saw a gradual easing of the pain in the lymph glands and a reduction in the swelling. Today the pain is nearly gone and he is going to take one more day off work today to spend the day sleeping, which he is right now. He has the same level of exhaustion I had the final week of my bout with this illness. Hopefully the stupid phone will not ring all day today and wake him up. I wish we could just turn the blasted thing off! Yesterday he was awakened twice by calls that were not necessary.
Anyway, he is most grateful for every prayer said on his behalf. Other than still being so tired, it seems he is finally on the mend. Thank you all and thank you Lord!
