Prayer Request….

In my last post, I mentioned my sweet hubby being sick on our trip last week. We hurried back home on Friday in time for him to see HIS doctor and was told it was a bad viral infection……Go home…take this medicine and let it run it’s course….!!!!  Although I was quite “uneasy” about this diagnosis, since he was SO SICK and had been for the past few days, I TRUSTED what we were told.

Nothing changed with him and by Monday morning I INSISTED he go again. We went to the Emergency Room and a few hours later HE was having emergency surgery. He had a hole in his colon, tons of air and bile in side him which had inflated his abdomen into a HUGE balloon and was literally being poisoned by it all this entire time.

I’ve NEVER seen my hubby THAT SICK or in that much PAIN…EVER…!!! The surgeon told us he was a VERY SICK man and it was serious. His 3 hour surgery was over at midnight Monday and of course he spent yesterday in ICU.  They’ve moved him to a regular room now and will be there for about a week. They had to do a colostomy which is temporary and he will need to go back for a second surgery in two to three months to remove it and repair his colon. Thank God it’s not cancer….!!!

He has a long road in front of him and one that really has me scared. PLEASE keep HIM in your PRAYERS…!!!!

He’s my knight in shining armor, my sweetheart and he took such great care of ME the past few months with my broken knee and surgery. He was there every second, helping me get back on my feet…waiting on me, babying me…taking me to physical therapy three times a week, doing it ALL… EVERYTHING…!!!

He’s simply THE BEST and everyone LOVES him…!!!

We are a TRUE LOVE STORY and I’m a LUCKY GIRL to have had this man sent to ME…!!!

Now it’s MY TURN to take care of him …!!! …. And I will….. I’ll do my best to keep you posted with the very short time I’ll have at my computer.

Please keep Bill in your prayers for a complete recovery so our Love Story may continue for many more years to come. Thanks SO much…!!!!
