Doug called today after Dr. Tang came in and told me that he said that this is quite unusual that we are having to wait so long for a heart. That it usually happens much faster then this, of course this news really annoyed Dave and made him a little down in the mouth. He is so sick of all of this, when I talked to him tonight through chatting on the computer he told me that everything that could go wrong has gone wrong to him and at first I tried to do the "oh honey no it hasn't " and then I was like, "who am I kidding, it really has". So I just told, "remember all of the lessons we are learning and don't give up!" I tell him everyday that he is the strongest person I know, even though I know by now he is sick of hearing it, one day he will look back on all of this and he will remember that and he will remember his strength and he will learn how to rely on that.
I do hope it does come soon, for all of our sake. Living like this isn't the healthiest for any of us, but we are trying to make the best of it. I keep thinking of all of those shipmates of David's that have wives alone at shore while they are gone for months at a time, if they can do it, so can we. God is good and he will heal David and he will once again bring us together as a family. It will just be in his timing, not ours and even the strongest of Christians have a hard time with that fact sometimes!
