I decided to put the date up on these since I have done so many of them and for that I'm sorry. A thread that is very long is overwhelming to me at times so here's a new one withe positive news. I just got home and was worried that I hadn't heard from Dick (working long days at his conference) or Sharlah (living long days at the hospital). But there was a new caring bridge and how good that Rich and Sharlah could hear the surgeon at the same time. 2nd hand often leads to an interpretation of what was said, and that can be a bit off, tho perfectly normal and what we all do. I can exhale now! Maureen
Hi! Thanks Kate for helping to keep everyone informed.
I think I was having some emotional breakdowns this last few days. The ups and downs of this world are so overwhelming. I don't know how people do it without faith in God. That knowledge is my rock...knowing that no matter what direction..Bekah is with God. What I keep asking myself is: why is it so hard? Then I remind myself, that there are so many out there who have hard if not harder trials in life as well. It may be with a sick child, parent, spouse or it may be with poverty, abuse, disability... there are so many things.
Bekah is doing well. She is still recovering from yesterday's latest surgery. Rich came out and was there for Bekah's surgeon's post op-consult---who was very positive about the outcome! This means alot because this was not what she was saying in Feb.
She said this surgery was very necessary and she was glad that she went back in- it could have turned ugly with infections. She also said it was a very good thing we didn't do a kidney biop---that would have been a huge mistake considering how sensitive Bekah's inners are. So... we watch and wait to see how Bekah does this next week and pray that the bleeding will stop. (She said it looked close to stopping soon.)
Thank-you so much for your encouragement, prayers and support. I can often feel the love when I am reading the entries and they help keep me keep going. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Rom 12:15
