A jumble

As I sit here writing this, I must say that I am at a loss.  My brother-in-law collapsed last night at home, and was taken to the ER, and later admitted to the ICU.  He has a long history of health issues, and so we are all understandably very worried.  your thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated during this time.



When yesterday started, it seemed to be such a normal, run of the mill day.  Then there was the devastation in CT, that has broken the hearts of our nation.  After that, our own personal family crisis.  I'm letting Ammon sleep in right now, even though today is an incredibly busy day for us, and we have so many different things we need to get done.  I'm putting off waking him up to tell him the latest news from the hospital.

I HATE THIS.

We're supposed to be going to my company Christmas party in a few hours.  My mother in law is telling me we should go, and she'll keep us updated.  But it feels silly to go and have fun when someone in your family is in Intensive Care, and you don't now what's going on.  I understand that we would be just as powerless sitting in the waiting room as we are if we carry on, but it still seems so wrong. 

So I ask that you keep Ammon, his brother, and their whole family in your prayers.  It's so hard to be a family member to someone who is going through this, and we could really use the love and support right now.

  5. i am so sorry to hear this. as a wife of someone with various health problems that has landed us in the ER and hospital stays on more than one occasion... i know what you're going through. how confusing it is... it's really a hurry up and wait type of game with healthcare and hospitals but you and your family will be in my prayers and i have faith that medical care has come a long way so hopefully all will be healed.
