Personal Reflections One Year Ago
Instead of deleting these reflections from last year, I’m revisiting them and sharing what happened next. This was last year:
So happy to report our son experienced a bit of pain relief today so there is good reason to think his condition is improving. We will know more tomorrow. Last night was devastating for my family around the country as one of our people who is hospitalized with the virus required emergency surgery. They actually lost her, brought her back, found and also fixed an aneurism. She is in critical condition on a ventilator, and we covet your prayers. I can hardly bear the thought she cannot have visitors, but I also know how strong her faith is.
My days involve long prayer sits, and my pain has been minimal for the second day in a row. Such small victories and answered prayers are keeping us rooted in hope.
Thank you for continued prayers and support.
Thank You for Interceding for Us
I had no idea how grave circumstances would grow. Unfortunately, pain relief did not reflect what a vicious syndrome would do to our son. The following day, he nearly slipped away. What a miracle that in spite of my frail condition (my weight hovered around 88 pounds), I was spared pain and had the gift of mental clarity and spiritual discernment so I could help make decisions and physically deliver him to the hospital. Amazing grace. It was heartbreaking to hear about the passing of our Tina in Arizona just as our son fought for his life. Your prayers matter…they were heard and felt and kept hope buoyant and alive. I’m forever grateful.
