Together we fight

One thing we know for sure is MOM IS FIGHTING!! Today is her 19th day in the hospital and her 8th day on the ventilator. This time last week, prior to being intubated, she called each of us to tell us that she loved us. We all gave her the same message; please fight! She is definitely honoring the request we made of her.

Her morning report looks good in some areas and remain concerning in others. She had a rough night. Her low heart rate was the main issue along with an increased white blood count which is to be expected following the procedure she underwent to drain infection from her gallbladder. They were able to come down on her oxygen but her ratio (Oxygen in blood) has not risen.

They will re-prone her mid-morning and we are praying to see her ratio increase. Her temperature was down this morning and her heart rate was back in good range. We continue to praise and pray.

On this Sabbath day, we give thanks to Cindy, one of mom’s Physician Assistants for finding the issue around her gallbladder and acting on it. If some of the infections going on in her body can be rectified, she will have a fighting chance for her lungs to regain the strength they need to step back into action.

This morning our devotional surrounded the story of Aaron and Hur holding Moses hands up as God’s people fought. Could God have established a victory without Moses? Absolutely. He is able. He just didn’t want to. God loves to involve His children when He intervenes on earth. Together these men won the battle and victory belonged to all of them.

We feel you in this battle with us, holding up our hands to the Father. The devotion concluded with this, “Let your tribe know how eternally grateful you are for them. And don’t forget to celebrate your victories.” Today we celebrate the victories mentioned above and ask for continued prayers for Mom to find improvement each day.

Thank you for being our tribe!

  6. I love The Lord and how He is our Shepherd and our Healer and that His Spirit is always with us. I thought of Lin this morning and that beautiful Spirit that abides in her and in you her family. I thought of her strong will to live and to fight and was reminded she is a soldier in the army of The Lord, and we are marching with her. Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have for you declared The Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. I still stand in line with all who love Lin.
