** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

Home-away-from-Home

Teresa's husband here. Just updating that my dear bride has been in the hospital again, pretty much since her last post on Wednesday. That evening, when I arrived home, she was in a HUGE amount of pain, very nauseated, and had a fever of 102. So, back to our apparent Home-away-from-Home we trod.

It has been a crazy end of the week, with various levels of frustration and disappointments in assessment, care, and prognoses. I'm sure Teresa will give more info on that later. The unfortunate bottom line is that her surgeon wants to remove her port-a-cath (her only IV access) and give everything time to sort of "reset." This is somewhat disconcerting to us because she has almost nothing as far as peripheral veins in case she needs IV fluids or medication. But...God has brought us this far, and since He has it ALL in His hands anyway, we take solace knowing that He will see us on a little farther.

We would surely appreciate you joining us in prayer: for patience to deal with a system that is still behind the curve with this illness; for guidance in how to be constructively pro-active in her care; and for there to be no problems while she is without her port. Thanks to you all.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, theresa. I'm so sorry you're going through this ordeal. I wish I had the power to stop it for you, but unfortunately, we all know how powerless I am in this regard (as we all are). So, all I can do is keep you in my thoughts and hope that you will be back to your normal self soon. (whatever normal means, eh?) ((many hugs))

I pray that God heals you dear friend, that God gives the doctors wisdom and insight, graces you with peaceful restful sleep, and comfort! Such comfort! I pray for your husband, that God bless him with strength, encouragers who lift him up, and the same God-graced sleep that leaves him refreshed with his huge responsibilities. Amen!

When Teresa gets better, I have a gift that just says thank you-no work, just thank you!

Just read this post now, but I've read the others before this as well. I just wanted to get to the beginning of the story of her latest health condition.

Praying for dear Teresa!
