A Call for Prayer - Again


I have all sorts of things I want to share, and have begun several times to begin that process.  In the midst of it all, we have been hit with a crisis of pretty major proportions.   I wrote this on Facebook today, and am so grateful for all of the prayer support the post has generated.  But I want to share with all of you as well.  

Dwight had an endoscopy Thursday, and that night he began vomiting and was sick all night long.  We called the doc, who prescribed nausea meds, thinking it was the flu.  Turns out there seems to be a direct connection between the confluence of the two issues.  He was sick for Friday and Saturday, but we just thought he was fighting a bug.  A big bad bug.  This morning, I was unable to help him up from the floor, where he had tried to crawl and get something from his dresser drawer (the girls were at the house, I was getting them ready for church, I had closed his door, and couldn't hear him calling me).  I felt like the worse wife ever!  I couldn't get him up, so told him I was calling an ambulance.  He said (true Bronco fan that he is), "not until after the game."  I think he's going to be glad he missed this one after all.  The ambulance, fire truck, and another vehicle arrived with siren blaring, lights flashing.  Quite a lot of commotion for our cul de sac.  The girls were traumatized, to say the least.  But they were all so kind to the kids. 

He is a very very sick guy.  He not only has pneumonia, but is septic (blood infection), and the lung doc just told me he could experience kidney failure, permanent or temporary.  This is just all so unbelievable.  I am so thankful for this network of prayer warriors!   

I am also so thankful for this amazing unit at this hospital.  He is getting top notch care.  Keep praying, please!


While you're at it, please pray for Kristen as well.  Just when things are starting to come together for her and her future, she had 5 miles removed.  (The fact that we have been trying to get her to get the largest one looked at for years now is something I have to let go).  She got a call from the pathologist at 8:00 Friday evening - which to me was a bit ominous.  The only word she understood was "melanoma", which is what my fear has been.  She has to see a specialist, and will be calling that office tomorrow - I suspect it is an oncologist.

I will try to keep you updated.

Praying for you Dawn, and your family. Wow, this is hard. But God knows...and God loves...and he cares about all of this very deeply. Keep your hand clutching to his. Keep trusting for his daily strength. He WILL see you through each day. He WILL give you strength. He WILL watch over Dwight.

Oh dear, Dawn. I am so sorry to be reading all of this. I was just checking up on all the blogs I used to read regularly. It's been a few weeks since you wrote this, so I hope things have improved and that your husband and daughter are doing ok.

Sending prayers your way.

It's me again and since today is Halloween, I wanted to share this little poem with you...

This is Halloween

Goblins on the doorstep,
Phantoms in the air,
Owls on witches' gate posts,
Giving stare for stare.

Cats on flying broomsticks,
Bats against the moon,
Stirring round of fate-cakes,
With a solemn spoon.

Whirling apple parings,
Figures draped in sheets,
Dodging, disappearing,
Up and down the streets.

Jack-o'-lanterns grinning,
Shadows on a screen,
Shrieks and starts and laughter--
This is Halloween!

Happy Halloween, dear Dawn, and if you have a chance, make sure you come by my blog today for my Halloween Bash and see what costume I dressed you up in! hehe xoxo

Oh my goodness....
I haven't been blogging as much as I used to for the last month or so, but today had time to actually pay some visits...and I read this?!!!

Sorry, I should make more of an effort to check my emails and my blogger reader, but just post my blog, visit with those that leave comments and let it go at that. Shame on me.

You're all in my thoughts. Hope things are improving. Golly.
