Here we go again...

Mike was feeling much better on Saturday.  I was so encouraged.  I left the hospital early to meet up with my daughter and the kids and we all had some play time.

Sunday morning, he seemed even stronger. . . Then around 1:30, he got a pain which grew worse.  His stomach started to bloat.  The nurse called in the doctor who ordered X-rays.  There is a blockage in his small intestine and the stomach pump was reinserted.

My hope that this is just a small blip that will be easily resolved.  He has been through so very much in the past three weeks.

  4. You have been so much as well, being on the outside and not being able to do anything. This is so difficult. I hope that you get some good news sooner.

  7. This was the breath prayer offered in my morning meditation yesterday. (breathing in) "O Perfect Love" (breathing out) "cast out my fear." It goes along with Margaret's advice:) Bless you both.
