Asking for Prayer
I believe in praying for little things and big things. This week it happens to be what I consider to be a pile up of little things. Alex has been sick ALL weekend. Finally I took him into the doctor today and he has an ear infection along with a bad chest cold with wicked asthma. So lots of drugs and round the clock care. After a very long and stressful morning at the doctor and pharmacy, I started to feel awful and came down with a sinus triggered migraine. The kind that makes you not want to move your head, lest you puke.
Then Mike called and announced that the daycare was sending Nathan home with possible pink eye. I was doubtful, but as the day wore on it appears they are right. So I need to take him to the doc tomorrow, and I should probably go to my doc as well.
My grandmother, who was in the hospital with anemia a couple weeks ago, seems to be short of breath again. But the lab messed up and she hasn't got the results of her hemoglobin retest from last week yet. Her knee is REALLY bothering her and she is anxious to have it replaced, but needs to be healthy enough first, obviously. Have I mentioned she's 90?
And finally my grandfather's stress test came back with bad results. He needs a heart cathaterisation and they say almost definitely a balloon angioplasty to put in a stent, which they will do this Friday. He knows this is a common procedure, but he's depressed by the news. Both his sons died of heart failure, and he doesn't have a great history either.
So if you would, please pray for us. Pray for strength and comfort, as well as healing for my whole family. I know this will all pass, but the sooner the better.
