"They are starting the drugs for the surgery and bringing in the consent forms to sign so he will be ready if they (the new lungs) are a match. I am strangely calm."
That "strange" calmness that carried me through what was anything but calm isn't really strange at all when you know Jesus. When everything around you is in turmoil and at times you can't see a hint of light breaking through he wraps you in his peace that is beyond anything the human mind can understand. Storms will come but so will peace. The love of God is mightier than the waves of the ocean. Blessings and peace on your day!
