Well, I’m pretty sad today. Mark went yesterday to have the ultrasound done on his heart and now has to go back on Friday for the angiogram. They said his right side was too inflamed to see anything. When they go in on Friday, if they can determine the cause and IF it’s minor enough, they will fix it right then and there but if not, we are probably looking at open heart surgery.
I feel like a broken record saying this but, please keep him in your prayers.
Love and hugs to all, Terri
The world keeps turning
as faster it goes
deliver their blows
the acid ‘s churning
as all heaven know
and what I’m learning
while the stress grows
is all I’m earning
is an ulcer, suppose?

Well, I said I would update you on everything, hopefully I remember it all:
Dad is all clear of cancer. We are guessing that it just went too long before they realized that he needed surgery and has suffered permanent nerve damage in his spine The dementia is continuing to worsen.
Jodie’s son was buried on Wed. Her grandson is doing pretty good now; granddaughter is doing much better and expected to recover, fully? We will pray it’s so! Children are strong, resilient little boogers. Hoping for the best.
Mark is back to square one, we think, but are unsure. One message said the tests he did were negative but he still needed to get the rest done. The cardiologist told him last Friday that he didn’t, ? He has an appt. with his regular doctor tomorrow, guess we’ll see what he says then. He still can’t go back to work until they find the cause. Burning through his vacation time rapidly and harvest will soon be upon us
I need a break. The stress finally took its toll and I slept for 2.5 days straight. Only woke up to go to the bathroom and eat occasionally. Hanging in there though Thank you all for your comments, love and prayers!! It means the world to us.
Love and blessings to you all, Terri
Now for some wisdom:
Well, I’m still hoping for the lesser of evils here. The Nurse Practitioner said, with his family history, we are probably looking at “early onset diabetes”. They sent him home with a One Step, I think that’s what it was called, to check his blood sugar this weekend and keep a diary of the readings. (Don’t forget about the fact that Penny has it and so we will know what those mean when he takes them.) He is to go back on Monday and they will go over it all. He said to me, “Ya, well you know I don’t like needles and shots!” My reply was, “I’d take your needle over mine any day of the week. Your’s would be no more than a bee sting!!” I’ve been getting the larger diameter/shorter needles lately which are only 2 1/2 inches long instead of the 3 inch ones. The MS drug is inter-muscular so the needle has to be long enough to go beyond the layers of skin and fat on my thigh. Hey wait a minute! Now that I have lost 40 pounds, it seems that I should be rewarded with maybe a 2 inch needle, doesn’t it? I wish
Anyway, there is nothing new to report on our other crisis for now, but no news is good news, right?!
Thanks again for your prayers, they are being heard!
With my love, , Terri
P.S. I definitely need to have something on the lighter side, so look for my next post following shortly
P.S.S. I almost forgot about the pics of my latest work in progress, almost finished, in the dragon saga No story as been written for it yet, sorry. This house has it all, even a bonsai tree in the back and a magic vine!
I thank you for your faithfulness to me and mine! i know I can count on you in times of need.
My brother and his wife said thank you and please continue to hold them up prayer as the next few days will be critical.
Their grandson suffered a severe laceration to his head but was up and trying to play this afternoon. Prognosis is good that he will fully recover.
Their granddaughter suffered severe brain trauma resulting in a hematoma. They have removed a small section of her skull to relieve the pressure and keeping her sedated.
Thank God for their car seats! Otherwise it would have been a triple fatality. So use them, my friends, and buckle yourselves up too.
Much love to you all, God bless, Terri
I was going to come on here tomorrow and ask for prayers for my husband Mark. Last Friday I got a call from him at work, his first week back, and he told be to come and get him. I thought he must have hurt his back. When I got there, he told be that he had passed out. They were loading a train, he was driving the tugger which pulls the cars, he stopped, got out, bent over to pick something up and the next thing he knew was Moe was reaching down to help him up. Well, he had an app. already scheduled with the neurosurgeon for Monday so he didn’t want to go to Urgent Care. After arguing with him about that, I acquiesced on one condition; if it happened again we’d go to the ER. Sunday night he informed me that he had done it twice more but didn’t tell me ’cause he didn’t want to fight about the ER.
He gave in to me about not going to work on Monday. The neurosurgeon said it was all good from his end and Mark needed to get with his family doctor. He went to work on Tuesday; I called the doctor and got him an app with the nurse practitioner for him on Friday. I called his work today to leave him a message and his boss said “Well, he’s right here Terri.” and put Mark on the phone. I said “You passed out again didn’t you?” He said that he had. This time he was in an office 75 feet in the air. They sent hi m home with orders not to return until he can prove that it won’t happen again
So, now I am not only worried about it being his heart causing this but also about him losing his job. I ask that you please pray for him/us.
Even more extreme is the other need for prayer:
My sister-in-law’s son was killed tonight in a car accident. His daughter and son were with him and his daughter has been airlifted to Riley’s Hospital in Indianapolis. She is in critical condition. His son was taken by ambulance. My heart is broken for her and them! Please, please keep them in your prayers for the next few days.
Thank you!! Love and blessings,Terri
