Abby, Etc, Etc.

From Brent

It's a holiday and a weekend, blah, blah, blah.

Abby is on her way back to the hospital, yada, yada, yada.

Please pray etc. etc. etc.

Forgive me... we're just really tired of this being our entire life. No loss of joy; no crisis of faith; not whining... just WEARY of Abby being sick every single day and our family being isolated. We'll keep you updated. Thank you for loving Abby and our family.

Brent, I have been where you and your family are now and know of the weariness & roller coaster. I wish I had the words to help, but also know there are none "I" can give & can only do what you have done for me & that is to remind me to pray. Pray about your weariness & for a renewal of strength. And for all of us following your family to do so as well. My heart & prayers go out to you & your family and especially dear sweet Abby.

I don't blame you guys one bit for being tired and exhausted and beaten down. I would be too! I don't know how you all do it. I would have lost it a long time ago. Seriously! I will continue to pray for Abby and your entire family. I hope and pray this all will end soon for all of you. God Bless!

from all of us with love said...

Honored to be asked to pray for your family. Thankful that God hears and answers prayer. I am "sorry" for your "frustration" in this situation, but, pleased to pray.

NO need to ask for forgiveness your family has been on a very long rollercoaster ride and I would be ready to get OFF too!!! Praying for some relief for Abby and all soon. God has a plan sometimes we just wonder why they have to be so hard on us!!

Who could blame any of you for being a bit weary of this routine? Heck, we're only in the ER once every month or two, most of the time, and I get tired of even THAT! So we'll be praying as always, and hoping that this phase of "frequent flyer" hospital activity will cease and desist soon and that a healthy, happy, sweet Abby will be able to move back to all the fun little girl things she wants to do. Hugs to all of you!

Sorry to hear of another visit to the hospital. Praying for the situation. I'm actually going through the 25 points you shared with us on the benefits of enduring sickness and suffering...thank you for your ministry to others.

We headed to the hospital with Sarah yesterday morning too, and watched the fireworks out the hospital windows last night. We are pretty new to this running to the hospital business, and it feels nice in a sad kind of way to know that we are not the only ones. Love you guys, and we always continue to pray.

I don't understand why they keep running you back and forth and racking up all those emergency room bills! Why can't they give you some kind of white blood cell test you can do at home and call the resorts in? At the very least, can't the emergency staff stop making you sit for hours and hours every time you go? They should know by now that you're in there nearly every other day and just go ahead and see Abby when you walk in.
