Prayer Requests 9-11-17

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 30

I will exalt you, Lord,
    for you lifted me out of the depths
    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
    and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.

To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.”

11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.

  1. Hubby is going to have an echo-cardiogram around 11:00 this morning. They want to find out if the clot came from his heart. If it did, then he will have to be on a blood thinner, which would probably cause the blood in his urine again. *sigh* Last evening he was told he would be discharged sometime today, either to home or to a rehab facility. I don’t know if that is changing.

    If he does have to go to a rehab facility, it would be until it is determined that the catheter can come out, & he can pee on his own with no problem. His daytime nurse is advocating for him to be able to come home, which is what he wants. Nightingale is an LPN, & I would be home with him all the time.

    When my MIL came here from having had emergency surgery on her colon, I was trained by a visiting nurse in the method of sterile dressing her open wound, & I was the one who helped her with her physical therapy exercises. So, I think we could handle having him home, & it would be good for all of us. Of course, if the doctor insists he needs to be in a facility for a little while due to the catheter then that’s what we’ll have to do.

  2. Hubby may have to be in a rehab facility for two to three weeks. He very much doesn’t want to do that. I’m feeling overwhelmed by everything there is to do & think about.

    Especially concerning is trying to figure out the financial situation. Nightingale has been a huge help, making several calls this morning to find out if we can get any assistance. (We can get some food help at a local place called SafeNet Ministries, & may be eligible for SNAP, aka food stamps). Hubby would not be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) unless a doctor says that he cannot do “any work” for at least a year. His own disability insurance, that he’s been paying every month for years, will not pay anything for the first 90 days.

    Hubby & I are both scared & overwhelmed, yet trying to remember that God is our provider, & He has gotten us out of tight spots before.

    As for me personally, I feel like I haven’t had time to “decompress” since he had the stroke. Every time I try, there is some interruption, or something I have to do, or a message to read & reply to (from him, with new information, or asking me to do something). Then there’s childsitting Little Guy, like this afternoon & tonight. He, too, is feeling stress about his Papa, & it sometimes comes out as bad behavior. (He’s pretty good today, though, thankfully.)

    But he said something really sweet & cute earlier today. (He’s home sick from school with a bad cold. So he’s been hanging around downstairs a lot today.) He said, “It’s like Papa has three children”, meaning he is the third child. Yup, Hubby would agree, as he loves him as his own. (Well, so do I. 🙂 )

  3. Florida Coast Guard widow and family have all come through fine with minimal damage to the houses on the eastern side. Unfortunately, no word on that granddaughter who stayed behind in the Keys. 😦

  4. “It’s like Papa has three children” It sounds like God is helping you guard his young heart so that any rejection or neglect or trauma from his dad does not damage him. Still praying for you. God is good.
