Tweet It's been awhile. Things are crazy. At first my lack of posting was due to sheer laziness and enjoying the gentle pace of summertime. Last week the carefree times came to a quick end. My Dad called me and said we needed to take my Mom to the emergency room.
Five hours after arriving at the hospital she was admitted. The next morning she had surgery to drain a HORRIBLE infection. We would later find out that infection was a nasty staph infection and it came very close to killing my Mom.
During our stay we have also found out that Mom has very bad type 2 diabetes. With insulin pills and shots her sugars are still in the high 100's to low 200's. Of course the infection is not helping those numbers.
As of tonight Mom is still in the hospital. They have attached her to a machine that is draining the infection over the next month or so. When she is released we will be taking her to the hospital three times a week to have the machine drained and the wound re-packed.
My prayer for Mom through this is that Mom will draw close to the Lord. That she will rely of His grace and mercy. That she will let Him lead her life.
My prayer for me is that I will be strong and compassionate. That I will diligently serve and show everyone around me the love of Christ through my actions.
I've missed you all. I hope to catch up soon!
