Early this morning, our dil emailed us to pray for our son Tommy. He was in bed and really sick. Tommy has probably not spent an hour in bed during his waking hours in his entire life, he is the 'energizer bunny'. So we immediately were on high alert.
He had gone to the Texas Rangers game yesterday and was miserable. They were asking us to pray, and taking him to the clinic in their small town (the one they recently moved to) as soon as it opened.
Long story short... the clinic sent him to the big hospital in Tyler and right away suspected he had the West Nile Virus.
He called me from his cell phone a little while ago. They were giving him an IV and he does have the Virus, but because he is young, in great shape, and caught it early, it looks like he is going home tonight and should be feeling better in a few days.
This has been a loooong day, with many prayers raised. You know how fast we can think of the very worst case scenarios. I am so thankful that this has such a happy ending. All day long, as I prayed, I have also known that God is in control. That peace is priceless.
Thanking God, and on the lookout for mosquitoes! :)
