  1. Update – June 17, 2018 Don’t know if anyone on here remembers me anymore – but I sure do remember you and still thank God for you! Have thought often of updating, but that’s as far as it went. Today seems like the right time, and the rest of me is actually cooperating! It is hard to imagine that June 25 will mark three years since ds’ Homegoing. Hardly seems possible. I miss him so much. The pain and the grief are still there – but – Jesus is still here, too – and He makes all the difference. I am doing remarkably well thanks to God’s grace, and the peace and the hope we hav
  2. Oh my. I haven’t posted on the Hive since September . . . (Not sure whether to post here or start a new thread, but this thread seemed more reasonable). Please know that your prayers are being heard, and felt – and I am so very thankful for your support. Many of you have let me know you are remembering and praying. One lady has her phone programmed to alert her to pray on Thursdays for us, since that is the day ds passed from this life into heaven. Please forgive my inability to respond or to post still yet. There are far-flung family members and friends who still don’t kno
  3. DS's Update – Coming Full Circle Written: July 7, 2015 Preamble: September 7, 2015 Posted: September 20, 2015 - - - - - - - September 7, 2015 Don’t know why I haven’t posted this yet, even though folks have been asking me about it. Maybe because grief takes so many different paths and is such an individual process. “Grieving†is an understated word. It doesn’t capture at all what life is like right now. The pain, the heartache, the emptiness. The cruel callousness of some who freely tell you how to grieve – what it says, how it acts, how it
  4. Thursday, June 25, 2015 9:55 PM Ds peacefully slipped on into Heaven to be with Jesus. Yes, I was with him -
  5. June 20, 2015 Still critical. A culture came back positive. This appears to be what has caused the most recent additional issues. Is being treated with a new medication, and will also have to have another procedure done that is not generally a serious thing, but because of the whole situation, in this case, is serious. Have cried and/or choked back tears most of today - having to leave was so very hard - Your prayers are so very much appreciated and needed. Thank you for praying. I don't doubt that God is hearing and answering. "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord."
  6. June 19, 2015 - 9:00 p.m. Still critical. The hoped-for results of yesterday's tests were not meant to be. Other things showed up - small in the whole picture, but adding nonetheless to the whole situation. Additionally, I have to return to work next week - Doctors understand and said, with being ventilated, he is more stable as his body can rest and hopefully make progress. I am sure every mom reading this knows how hard being away is going to be - will need prayer - Doctors saying ds is in a holding pattern and they can only watch and wait. With God nothing is impossible. Man's effor
  7. June 19, 2015 - 9:30 a.m. Just quickly: Got a call at 2:10 a.m. that ds needed intubated (a breathing tube inserted). Was on 6L of oxygen and acidotic (unable to breathe out the carbon dioxide), and gasping for breath. Also, his blood pressure meds had greatly increased. Got a call at 3:03 a.m. that the tube was inserted; bp meds reduced but still high. The multitude of things for God to intervene in and show His mighty power continues - The battle is HIS. Thanks for praying.
  8. June 18, 2015 Still critical. Tests run today due to the new bumps in the road mentioned in yesterday's post. Doctor says best possible outcome of those tests would be to find an abscess or an infection - that would be treatable and if that is the cause of the new bumps in the road, would possibly be the answer to those bumps. All other conditions same. Thank you for praying. "And thine health shall spring forth speedily." (Isaiah 58:8b)
  9. June 17, 2015 Still critical. Same conditions. Some new bumps in the road. Need solid, sustained breakthrough to healing. Please keep praying. Thank you. "And thine health shall spring forth speedily." (Isaiah 58:8b)
  10. June 14, 2015 Still critical but stable. Bilirubin went down another tad – Thank You, Jesus! White blood way too low; needs to start trending up. Healing of graft vs. host disease, and the other conditions, needed, and that the bone marrow transplant is successful. Thank you for praying. So very needed. “Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him … he shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him My salvation.†(Psalm 91:14a, 15-16)
  11. June 13, 2015 Still critical. Bilirubin dropped by two - Thank You, Jesus. White blood dropping. Some other changes, but basically status quo. "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea." (Psalm 93:4)
  12. June 12, 2015 Still critical. Bilirubin up a tad two days in a row. White blood count trending down. Otherwise, status quo. Critical but stable. Please keep praying. "... And with His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5b) "... And with His stripes [my son is] healed." (Isaiah 53:5b)
  13. June 10, 2015 Still critical. HOWEVER: --three days in a row with no new negative news added --bilirubin down by 3.5 – still way too high but trending in the right direction --a test related to the bone marrow transplant came back with good news Still needs MUCH prayer, in particular: --GVHD (graft-versus-host disease) – It is stage 4 (the worst). Have started a new medicine today to hopefully (prayerfully) help with it. This medicine comes with GREAT RISK due to the other medical situations he is dealing with. --The LIVER in general. Bilirubin needs to come way down. Not
  14. June 8, 2015 Still critical. Yesterday's news, among other things, was that the bilirubin, after five consecutive days of going down, went up. HOWEVER, that was yesterday. Here is today's news: --The bilirubin came down today, lower than two days ago. Still way too high, but trending in the right direction. Thank You, Jesus! --The test results from the additional test for a potentially new problem came back today – negative! Thank You, Jesus! --One doctor said, after examination focused on his particular area of expertise, “Holding steady; no changes.†--The doctor
  15. June 6, 2015 Still critical. Had I posted last night, it would have said only: ENOUGH already - From today: --Bilirubin lower by a tad for the fifth straight day. Still way too high. --Team of doctors (not just oncologists) concerned about yet another situation. Will be testing. --Engraftment (bone marrow transplant) seems to be working, but is being hindered by the multitude of other problems. --Oncologist would like to see two problems in particular resolved as, in his condition, each alone is life-threatening. Additionally, they know how to treat each one, but, if the
