Prayer Request

Hello Friends, Prayer Request

Just a quick post to ask for your help. I have an infection around one of my feeding tubes. It’s the Klebsiella again (we think). Not something we can get rid of forever but generally I can keep it under control.

Over the past couple of weeks it has been getting problematic. Fever. Icky, drained feeling. I am waiting for bacterial culture to come back for the specific medication that is needed to fight it. Until then I wait and pray things don’t get worse or I will have to go to the ER.

I am asking for prayer that this infection is quickly identified and it’s medication is clear. I pray the medication works well and quickly with no lingering effects from this bout of infection.

Thank you all for your support!

Walking Down Memory Lane

What Dying Feels Like to Me

What does it feel like to be slowing down. To be dying? Frankly it’s exhausting. No seriously I am soooo tired I sleep most of the day. I never really noticed how tiring being ill is until this long drawn out assault on┬ámy system. I sleep well over 10 hours a day. The rest of…
