Emergency Room Visit: Prayer Request

Psalm 92:1-2 “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare Your steadfast love in the morning and Your faithfulness by night.”

We are at Northwestern at the ER to have Wayne checked out. Over the last 24 hours, his right side weakness has gotten worse. Tonight he fell at dinner and hit his head on the wall. About 15 minutes later, he had a seizure, which he hasn’t had since surgery. I called the neurology team and they told me I needed to bring him in to be evaluated. 

This whole journey feel like a crazy roller coaster. One minute we receive encouraging news, like the doctor hopes that the treatment we used 8 years ago may work again to treat this aggressive monster, and then we hit these hard times. It is hard to see him struggle to walk, talk, and even feed himself. He hides his weakness well in photos, but he’s struggling. We even have to help him lift his right leg into the car. That is just really hard to see my big strong husband struggling to do normal things.

On top of it all, Micaela and I were hit with some stomach bug. Thankfully, I am feeling better now. I guess it was God’s way of giving me enough sleep and rest to face tonight. Please pray with us that the doctors are able to figure out what is going on and get Wayne stabilized and for Micaela, who still isn’t feeling well. Please also pray that no one else gets sick!
