Abby Back to Hospital

Abby is going back to the emergency room and my poor wife is about to go out of her mind trying to juggle all this by herself. I get home tomorrow.

I am so sorry to hear this. Abby is, as usual, in my prayers, as is Michelle -- that God will give her strength and stamina to get through this.

Michelle, not that this will make you feel any better about all this, but I just got back from my 3rd trip this week to the hospital with Elke. Our delightful issue du jour is complete and total incontinence. Drenching accidents, over which she has no control. Can I get off this ride soon?

But our concerns are minor compared to Abby's right now. Wishing Brent a safe (and speedy) trip back home tomorrow, and peace of mind for him, too, as it must be so hard to be so far away and unable to help.

Ann Brown said...

Btw,
forgot to ask, but why do you have to take Abby to the ER during daytime/week hours? We go to our hem/onc floor when they're open. I feel so bad that you all are constantly in the ER! Germs, long waits, and general yuckiness! Will your oncs not see you for drop in emergencies?

Praying,

Ann (and Elke)

Praying for an angel of mercy to arrive and give you a hand Michelle.
Sorry to hear things are so crazy and Brent is out of town--one more day.

It's an honor to know you and to pray for you and your sweet baby girl. So sorry you are going through this terrible time. Hang in there... many are lifting your arms.

The Lord knew that Abby needed special parents. She needed ones who would persevere and never give up no matter how stinkin' tough it gets.

Praying for healing and rest and peace and comfort and provision.

Much love,
Amy

So sorry for Abby and Michelle. When my youngest had a blood disorder and had to be hospitalized off and on for 3 years, I spent most of the time alone with her. It's not easy, but sometimes can't be helped. I'm glad, though, that you'll be with her tomorrow. I know she is too. Hoping Abby is not there long. Poor baby.

Juli said...

Thinking of you all and saying prayers. I wish I were closer physically, so I could DO something, but I know that PRAYER is DOING something too, so pray I will. May God give all of you the strength, courage and insight to care for Abby's needs as well as the other children's AND yourselves!

God Bless You all - travel home safely.

Praying for Abby, and for you and Michelle.

Brent.. when I left my previous comment, the word verifcacation didn't show up, so I was unable to proceed with the comment... so I just went ahead and published the comment, and the second time it popped up, the word verification showed, so that I could proceed...

Thought I'd mention this in case other commenters found the same problem and couldn't leave comments or share prayer support in the first place.

In this second comment, the word verification showed up fine, so it must have been a glitch for first time, I don't know if others have experienced this too.

Michelle said...

I am so sorry for you and your family, it must be hard on you and your wife trying to juggle it all. If I lived closer I would definatly want to help you all. May God continue to give you both the strength you need to make it each and every day and God bless little Abby!!
