I Am Home

Hello my precious friends, I am home. I appreciate all the support that has been shown to me by your love, comments, and dear prayers. I am better, but still not well. Actually, I should be in the hospital, but we had a family emergency. As we were trying to deal with my blood sugar being over 700, we received a call concerning lovebug's dad. We had to rush down to his parents home, because of course his mom was there alone with his dad. As we pulled up in front of their house, so did the ambulance. We did not know if he was having a heart attack, or stroke from the symptoms he was having. We got his mom in the car, and followed the ambulance to the hospital. When we got to the hospital, we were greeted by our two nephews, one niece in-law, and lovebug's sister. They took his dad straight back to emergency of course, and started working on him. I could not let the focus be upon me, lovebug needs me to be strong for him. He is very worried about his dad, he is very sick, he is now in ICU. He already has COPD lung disease, type 2 diabetes, and congestive heart failure. They think he has a really bad infection somewhere in his body. Please pray for him, his name is Bill. Pray that God will lay healing hands upon him, and pray for my lovebug. Lovebug is so worried about his dad, and lovebug has already been through enough stress. As for me, my doctor gave me fluids through a IV bag for severe dehydration, changed my insulin. Waited till my blood sugar went down from 700, to 400, then let me go. I had to go because of our family emergency. I go to see the eye specialist Tuesday, I truly would appreciate your continued prayers. I love you all. I want to give special thanks to my sweet sis Peggy. Thank you for storming the gates of heaven on my behalf, and for the ecards, and heart felt comments. I love you with all of my heart sis. You are my mighty prayer warrior.

Precious Denise,

Along with many others online and off line I have been praying for you. I alerted my church last night when I found out as that's where I was when I found out you were on the way to the hospital. My husband and I also prayed for you late last night when I returned home.

Prayers for you and Eddie are often in my home and won't stop as we are believing GOD with and for you in every area of need.

I am praying now for Eddie's Dad's health. Surrounding your family in prayer.

I read your post below and I'm praying also...

ONE of the many things I love about our GOD is that HE KNOWS who stands in need and all the particulars even if we can't get to each other to pray, it's glorious knowing that we can just call on Him and know He is there with us so never doubt that you are loved and being prayed for.

I love you very much dear friend. You are very precious to me and to SO many others!

I got on line to see if there was an update. Signing off for the weekend.

Praying for you.
Psalm 27:13-14

My sweet sister! We are all casting our prayers for you at the feet of our Lord! You are a blessing- we will add Eddie and his dad and family to the list!

Love you!
(I hope this works-its from my phone)

Angela said...

Saleslady371 said...

I agree with your video. We need to pray vigilantly now...time is short. I was sorry to read about Lovebug's dad, Bill. I will be in prayer for all of you. Keep us posted.

Marsha said...

Denise, I've been praying and praying for you, along with my family. PLEASE, take care of yourself! YOU are an emergency right now, too. Lovebug doesn't want to lose you either. There are other dear loved ones to keep watch over your dear father in law. YOU need to take care of this NOW before you go into insulin shock or worse, a coma. PLEASE do everything the doctor says to do and just ask Eddie to keep us all posted here on the blog so we know what's going on.

I love you!

Denise, It's amazing how God gives us the strength to get through these emergencies, isn't it? Particularly when your health is so critical, as well! I will continue to pray for you and will add a prayer for Bill and for your husband. God is hearing all our prayers and we must pester Him just as a child would pester her her earthly father. God hears and will answers.

Beth said...

I am so worried about you, but still praying!

Annesphamily said...

Bill is in my prayers. I know you have enough on your plate and yet the Lord sometimes gives more to those He knows can handle it! I once read a quote attributed to Mother Teresa and she said "I wish God didn't trust me so much!" Blessings to your precious family. Anne

Surfin Grandma said...

From another prayer warrior - you are on my prayer list, and I hope that things will settle down soon for your family! You really have a lot on your plate right now, and I pray that God will give you the health and strength to deal with it all. Take care and God bless!


Peggy said...

Thank You Lord! and Thank you Denise for putting this up for all to read your update! I sent this to the ones I emailed but not all the blogs so I hope they come and read this. Many blessings to you, Denise

I'll continue to PRAY for Lovebug & his dad. But I must tell you, that it is YOU that I am concerned about and YOU must take care of you too! I see the beautiful, caring person that you are but you must not forget about your temple, please. I know that you are concerned for him and you love them all so much but you will be no good to anyone if you don't take care of you. Sorry, but thgis had to be said. Of course, I love your selfless love! So do me that favor... and you can remove those last few lines (because that's what sisters do and we all love you). I was just responding to your prayer at The Lighthouse... and knew that I needed the other sister prayer intercessors to stand with me and for you. They all were so ready to pray as you pray for so many.

Thanks for adding Alleluiabelles's prayer need, Ron's, Alice's, Lovebug & his dad at The Lighthouse of Prayer. So many urgent needs plus the families of that little Rulaine. Oh my.... the enemy is relentless but Our God is stronger and He cares for us all so much more!

Staying in prayer cuz I gotta get off this computer (my eyes are so sore from crying & reading).

PRAISING GOD but I need to see those levels lower, much lower.
You were so wise to post a prayer at The Lighthouse!!! I may have missed it here, but never there.


LOVING YOU and GOD (of course)
for all you are!!!
Please take care and be ready. Remembering your appt. on Tues.
Remember what I said, "they", we all need you here so you obey.

With all my love & prayers...
Peace in Christ,

Nana's Nuggets said...

OH! Girl, I am praying for you and hubby's family! I want you to be sure to take care of you, so that you can help others! When the waves sometimes comes in they can overwhelm one, but as I posted this morning that God knows all about it! He will Provide just what we need! Take Care and Blessings of Health to all of you!

LisaShaw said...

I came back by this evening to say I love you and I'm interceding for you and your family right now.

Bernie said...

I am so sorry to hear how ill your father in law is as well as yourself Denise. I am praying that all goes well, hopefully your sugars will stay down. We count our sugars differently in Canada, I have to keep mine between 4 and 7 and that is quite difficult. Will be praying for you all and try and enjoy a bit of the weekend sweetie, not to worry. God will handle everything.....:-0 Hugs

Debbie said...

Oh my, what a time! Denise I am praying for you and that your blood sugar would stay in a healthier range and that you would have the peace to deal with all of these challenges. I am praying for Bill too.

Oh friend... so much suffering going on in our world... in our homes. Yes, prayers for all of you tonight. Seems like many of us could just use a good night of rest and peace. That's what I'm praying for all of us... and a blessed Sabbath rest with our Father as well.

I just checked in on you--glad to hear you were able to post. And I have prayed for you FIL, your hubby and for you, too. I'm so sorry you had to leave the hospital and rush away like that--but it had to be done, I know.

You're in my prayers.

Godsgalnj said...
