When It Rains It Pours

The last 2 weeks have been hard ones.  They have especially been hard on my sweet husband.  If you read this and don’t mind…please keep him and his family in your prayers.

About a month ago, his Dad fell while carp fishing and injured his back. His pain was so bad and it felt like the pain he had when his kidney stone moved…so he thought maybe the jar from the fall knocked his stone loose…so he went to the urologist.  They told him he was just badly bruised.  So a couple weeks later he was still no better.  He went to his regular Dr and they did more x-rays.  They discovered he had a fractured spinal lumbar.  Right after this news, Chris’ grandmother passed away….she was 2 weeks shy of being 97!!  This was his Mom’s Mother.  The funeral was on Thursday January 17th.  On Sunday January 20th, his Mom went into the hospital.  She suffers from COPD and couldn’t breathe.  While his Mom was in the hospital, his Dad found out he has a mass in his lung.  On Thursday he got a call from his Dr and told him to go straight to the hospital…his lab work had came back and his blood platelets were at an emergency low.  He really needs the back surgery to get relief from the pain he is in and he needs a biopsy of the mass in his lung….but they can do nothing for him at the time b/c his platelets are so low.  He is getting his second transfusion today so we are praying that they will stay up this time.  His Mom got released from the hospital yesterday and is now resting at home.  I know it has to be so hard on her to not be able to be by his side at the hospital.

So, Chris and his Mom and Dad are going thru a lot right now.  I ask that you will keep them in your prayers.

“We know who goes before us, we know who stands behind, the God of Angel Armies….is always by our side.”
