We went to New Orleans for Roberts three month check-up. And the first question he ask when one of the Doctors places a stethoscope to his back to listen to his lungs is, well do you hear any crackling? It sounds like rice crispys crackling. Their answer this time was yes, we still hear it. But this is the best part and I never get tired of hearing it; Well one day when I come in here and you listen you will not hear that sound. That just makes me smile and thank God to listen to my husband have such faith in our LORD. Because we both know that one day he is going to heal Robert. We just know it!
This visit to Ochsners was not too bad. No sticks this time, his most dreaded part. The disease had not spread much at all. We are still on go for the lung transplant, unless of course God heals him before that. We are nearing the top of the list. Which gives both of us a little anxiety. Dr. McAnnally one of Roberts doctors has been the best ever. She has taken the time to make sure that Robert and I fully understand everything about IPF and the transplant itself. She has never rushed us in or out. She even gave us a tour of the transplant floor where we will be spending a lot of time post surgery. This tour really made Robert feel more comfortable. Meeting nurses and staff that promised to take good care of him. God is good all the time.
Robert also got his flu shot, now Kloee and I have to get ours. We must keep him well. This will keep him strong and ready for surgery.
Anyone with questions about the disease or how Robert is feeling please don’t hesitate to give him a call.
Believing in a miracle,
