My mother-in-law is in ICU on a vent. I took her in last night to the ER with what I thought was pneumonia. Turns out its viral not bacterial which is harder to treat. Fortunately the Dr. we pulled was the daughter of a friend of ours. Once she got in (took 7 hours in the waiting room) she pulled out all the stops for her.
She's 92 on a vent in the ICU, I'd been up over 24 hours already so Lewis brought me home to get the kids to school and Shabbos going. He's still there at the hospital. The neighborhood jumped in and got kids to school. What I'm asking for is your prayers. No matter how well we plan and cope all things are done through him and I know with your prayers we can get her through.

Adding my prayers this morning... I know your nursing background is both reassuring (you know everything necessary is being done for her recovery) and scary (you know too much)... I'm glad you and Lewis are able to be there with her. Prayers for your kids, too... it's hard on them, seeing your worry and feeling helpless.

I'm learning to dance in the rain. Thank you, Sally & Chris & Sharon.

I, too, am sending my prayers for you and yours for both healing and comfort. May all of you feel His presence and love and blessings.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
