Prayer needed!

I had to take Rick to the emergency room in the middle of the night. He was in pain from his surgery last Friday and hadn’t slept for 2 days and then he started to have chest pains and couldn’t breathe well. He was admitted into the hospital with phenomena. After a big surgery this is not good so please pray for him.

Scary! Thank you for the updates today, I know they really helped Rickey's nerves. I hate being so far away from you guys, please know we are praying and can't wait to hear that he is feeling better.

Abby and I prayed together for Grandapa before she went to bed tonight. It was so sweet, I of course was in tears. The prayers of a 6 yr old are so simple. Here is what I can remember that she prayed...

"I need your help God. I know you know but my best Grandpa that lives in Texas is sick. Please make him feel better and make him not have to be in the hospital because they are pretty smelly and he likes being at home with his doggies more. I need to make sure he feels all better when I get to miss a day of school in Novemember and go to Dallas. I miss my best Grandpa. Amen. Oh and make Cali's all better too."

Talk about ADD! It was so precious, it really warmed my heart. I have never heard her call Rick her best Grandpa before but it was so sweet. We love you guys so much and it kills me to be so far away and not be able to be there to help. I know it won't be easy but please take some time to get yourself some rest. Talk to you soon.

Poor Rick! He just can't seem to catch a break these days. You two are so blessed to have each other during these times!
Get used to the lack of sleep you are experiencing taking care of Rick becuase this will be like a vacation when you are up for those midnight feedings and those other joys of parenting!! Muah!

Oh, Amber, I didn't realize this post... our thoughts and prayers are surely with you so much. Get well Steve, get well... God Bless.

I'm such a jerk, the minute I pressed the button I realized that I wrote the wrong name, I'm so horrified because I remember that Steve had passed... please forgive me for not typing Rick... I feel like a total ass.

God bless your family, I'm sorry.
