Thank you for your prayers

Just a quick post before heading off to bed.  I wanted to thank all of you for lifting my family up in prayer.  Nadine (MIL) seemed much better today as far as being awake and alert and even giggling.  We really can't understand a word she says but we can enjoy the smile and giggle.

Bless her heart, she can't even have ice or water and her mouth is so dry.  She kept asking us for water yesterday and Sunday, which is something she hasn't wanted in months.  Her little tongue is just peeling.  We can swab it out but that's it.  Before we left tonight she was running a fever of 101 again and starting to be in pain again.  We can see her jerking, shaking and wincing in pain but when we're asking her where it hurts by the time she understands what we're saying the pain has stopped for a moment and she says she doesn't have any.  It's so hard to watch.

Tomorrow the Dr is going to have to go in the same leg as before and try to open the vein again.  Blood is not going to the foot, I'm worried that they may have to remove it.  Can you imagine going through this at 90?  It just breaks my heart.  After giving her the blood transfusion Sunday her blood count is back up to 7 point something which is better than when she came in but not near the 9 it really should be.  I think they said a normal person is about 12 or 13.  I am so NOT a medical person.

They did put a pick in to give her her meds and take blood, etc.  Sunday 3 veins blew after or during taking blood or giving an IV.  Her body went through so much on Sunday.

So there you go.  This is were we are and I really don't know where that is.  I don't know if you can imagine the comfort y'all provide by answering my prayer request.  When I'm so scared and frightened, seeing her in that kind of pain the only thing I can think to do, is ask you to lift her in prayer.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I know I haven't been around much lately and that seems to be my song a lot but I think about all of y'all each day and do want to post something besides request.  I still have the word balance in my heart this year and am working on it.  Hopefully you will see it come to fruition this year.

Much love to you all.  OOOXXX's....Tracy :)


  1. Bless your hearts...all of you. I know what you guys are going thru is so hard. Sometimes the body gives out long before the spirit does. Peace and love to you all.

  2. Hugs and lovin back at ya!! Will keep Nadine in my prayers and of course you and Neil! Hard decisons this old age stuff...I dred this being on my daughters shoulders someday. We do alot of talking about it..I want them to know it's okay to let me go when the time comes...I will see them again in Heaven.So many never discuss anything with their families...then wham bam something horrific happens and what do you do.
