Just When I Thought........

it couldn't get worse. I know, I know, it can always get worse (and it did).

The preschool called and Monkey was vomiting and I mean every 2 minutes. He covered everything (he was asleep). They changed his clothes not once, not twice but three times. He met me at the door in a pullup and tee shirt. Then he threw up on me and the floor and him. Bless his sweet heart.

My Mom went back later and picked up Tiger. He is staying with my parents tonight and hopefully he will remain vomitless (for all sakes involved).

Hubby is in great pain and the incision is about a 6 inch smiley face mouth. He is wrapped from foot to groin. Cannot remove bandage until Saturday evening. He has been unable to control his bodily functions until about 12pm this afternoon. Two diapers. He had a spinal and some loopy meds instead of being put asleep . He has severe acid reflux and it is not a good outcome. Even though he has been sick after 3 of the last 5 meals.

My Mom got dizzy yesterday and passed out but did not loose consciousness. She had gotten too hot. She and my Dad were both inside the fruit market when it happened. They had just sent my aunt home because she was having a spell with her heart.

Tuesday when I got in from the market I found out that my Dad's bp had went very high and he was having severe pains in his head and burning on one side of his face. I called his cardiologists' nurse at home and she told me what to do. He has an appointment with the heart doc Monday morning.

I am so tired and at a loss. I need you all to lift me up in prayer. I am sorry for being so weak, I am just human. I set holding one of my precious blessings and wash his faces after he cries and vomits, all the while hubby is in tears from the pain and my heart is breaking . Then my pain continues because I miss my other precious blessing with all my heart.

I need strength Lord........please give me peace and strength. Thank you all for listening and praying.

I keep reciting Philippians 4:13.

Oh my...I'll be thinking of you and your family. Best wishes to all for a speedy recovery.

Mrs. Darling said...

So sorry Marva. Of course I will pray.

Mimi said...

Marva, I really wish that I could do more than pray. Sometimes the only thing that keeps me going is the thought that sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better.

Anonymous said... are not weak! You just have so much on your plate right now. I am praying for all of you. Sending love and hugs your way....hang in there.....blessings, Ellie

Nikki said...

Marva, I am so sorry to hear all the illness in the family right now. You do not need to apologize for being weak. I pray and sending prayers to your entire family

That does it! No more thinking for you!

I wish heartily that I could just hop in the car and come do something helpful. As it is, we are praying for you. His strength is made perfect in our weakness, so I lift you up to wonderfully sufficient grace.

Hugs and prayers, my friend!
