I just wanted to pop in and ask for continued and renewed prayer  for Greg. He is truly fighting for his life, and needs them as much, if not more, than ever, as he battles the effects this infection has had on his already weakened body.  I now fully understand the severity of sepsis. We have seen some positive progress over the last few days, small baby steps of progress. I am praying fervently and boldly and persistently for God to heal him and make him whole again. I thank God for what he has done for us, and what he is doing, and what he will do.  Even in the midst of this terrible trial, he has blessed us in many ways.

I cannot express my appreciation enough to all our friends, both in our little community, and from other places, including those of you I have only known through the internet, for the outpouring of love and support for us.  The offers of help, the cards, care packages, traveling to Lubbock to be with me, or sit with Greg…I am truly in awe. My heart has been touched in ways that I cannot even express in words. I will be forever changed by this, whatever the outcome.  I have learned so much from the examples that you all have set by ministering to us in our time of need.  There are so many thank you cards that I need to be writing, but for now, please just know that my heart is full of appreciation to each and every one of you for being there for us, loving us, praying for us, and every other way that you have ministered to us.  I don’t know how I would get through each day, sometimes each minute, without my FAITH, my FAMILY, and my FRIENDS.  I send my love to you all.

  1. This has been a long haul! I’ve watched and prayed from a distance, but now I want you to know that I’m here and I’m praying. I’ve just recently gone/am going through a personal health issue and the verse that is so comforting is from Psalms “My times are in his hands.”

    Thank you for keeping us updated. I don’t expect a personal reply. Take care of yourself. Get some rest.

  2. Randi, I’m continuing my prayers for both you and Greg. As Margo says, one day at a time. God’s grace is sufficient. We just have to trust Him. He sees the bigger picture, we don’t. Hugs,


  3. You’re having that faith tested a lot. My prayers for both of you! I hope he turns the corner towards recovery, soon. I know you’re giving him the strength to fight, and win.
    Take care of yourself, too.


  4. I understand what you are going through…to some extent. My husband was just admitted to the hospital yesterday with blood clots in his lungs, and will be in for at least 5 days. We are praying for good results and complete healing!
