Lovelies, if you feel led, would you pray for my family? My step-dad isn't doing good right now. As I told you in Monday's post, he had to have surgery on Tuesday. Over the last two years he has had multiple hospitalizations and surgeries due to his diverticulitis. Several large hernias resulted from these surgeries and this last surgery was to repair those. He had to have 15 incisions and two large sheets of mesh (about the size of two dryer sheets) put around his intestines. There were a couple of "complications" during the surgery, but the surgeon thought everything would be fine and that he could go home yesterday. He did go home but they had to have the ambulance pick him up and take him back to the hospital late last night.
I will spare you all the gory details, but the gist of it is that his stomach and intestines aren't working. They are having to pump bile out of his system. They are investigating the cause behind this issue today but as of right now that is all I know. My mom is upset although she is trying to be strong. It is definitely scary when you don't know what the immediate future holds for you and your family.
On top of all that, there are other things she has to worry about like my baby brother and her dog, Rascal. We are helping her with this but of course she is going to worry anyway.
As you can imagine this hasn't been a very good week for us. From Dru and Bentley being sick earlier in the week, to my cousin being hospitalized, and now this with my step-dad. I came in to work this morning, after talking to my mom, shaking like a leaf. I have calmed down considerably, but I am still pretty stressed out. Our family has had a tough few years between illnesses, surgeries, hospitalizations, and death.
I know this probably seems very scattered and I apologize. My head just isn't right today with everything that is going on. I just wanted to write something quick and ask you all, if you feel led, to please pray for my family.
Thank you my lovelies. You all are wonderful.
