A Quick Post

I am posting this fast. We are on the way to the hospital to have me admitted. The pain has become unbearable and so I'll have pain control and then back surgery. Heather is doing better. She is out of her coma but is still being sedated. I am posting a link to a web site you are welcome to visit to get the latest on her condition. Thank you for praying. She was very near death. You are welcome to post comments on her website but please keep in mind that her 11 year old son does not know all the details and may read what is written.

The movers are coming on Tuesday and this week will be very hard for my hubby. Please keep him in prayer. I will post again when I am out of the hospital and able to post.

A Call To Prayer

I'm calling all of you prayer warriors out there to prayer. The wife of one of our chaplains is gravely ill. Her husband, Chaplain Scott Jackson (southern Baptist I believe), deployed to Iraq on Monday. Tuesday Heather was taken to the hospital and is now in a coma. I understand it is a diabetic complication and she is very near death. They have an 11 year old boy and a 3 year old little girl. Heather is a light in this darkness. She is one of those women you can very clearly see Jesus in. We need her here. Her husband and children need her. I understand that her son is taking this very hard which of course is understandable. Scott is now at her side, but please my sisters, please pray. Storm the gates of Heaven with us for her full recovery. I'll keep you updated as I learn more. Thank you.

Things I'm Thankful For (In no particular order)

Alan - A husband who loves me and is picking up the slack without complaint.
Smokey - A loveable cat who wont leave my side when I'm sick.
Alaina - My precious daughter. I can't wait until she can come home.
Pain medication - Life would be unpleasant without it right now.
There are many other things but I just realized I need to cut this short and go to the commissary so I'll finish with the most important one.
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - The one I cry out to in times of need - The one who loves me in spite of me - The one who makes my life worth something - The one who suffered so much more than I am now so a worthless wretch like me could spend eternity with Him.

And I had the nerve to complain.

terribly ashamed...


Well, it's Saturday and I don't have much to say. I have loads of housework that needs to be done, but I can't get it done. The pain is back pretty bad. It seems that perhaps I tried to do too much. I don't know. I'm rather frustrated with not being able to do much. If I unload and reload the dishwasher (sitting in a chair for most of it) that's about all I can do for the day. I can do one or two things and then I hurt so bad I have to rest the remainder of the day. I hate that Alan has had to pick up so much of my slack. We have so much going on right now and he has to carry the burden of everything! It doesn't seem fair for him. Well the verse about do everything without grumbling or complaining just popped in my head so I guess I'd better shut my yap and be thankful for the things I can do.

Do Me A Favor Please

Ok everyone go and look at the comments from the last post. Comment number 3 is weird. Anyone know anything about this? I'm just curious but I thought some of you other bloggers may have seen it before.

Feeling Better

Well, I went to the doctor on Tuesday. She put me on a new regimen of medications and boy has it helped! Way down with the narcotics and way up with the feeling better and mobility. I really have to give the credit to the Lord though. I was already starting to feel better before I saw her. I'm still going to have the MRI on Monday though. If I really do have a herniated disk as the doctor believes I need to know and to get the right treatment started. That said I believe the Lord will heal me. He may choose to use medical help, but He may choose to touch me like He did last night. The pain was so bad and I prayed again and immediately I felt relief. As each part flared up I asked the Lord to touch it and He did. Immediate relief and I slept well. Praise the Lord! I hope I'm not spelling too many things wrong! Where is my spell check?!!!!!
