I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Now..IM sick!

So for the past 2 weeks we all had colds and coughs and mine has gotten progressively worse..its gone to my chest and Im in wicked pain.I finally went to the hospital on monday night and a chest xray shows that I have plurisy! Its my lungs all sticky and its between my 2nd and 3rd rib! oh my gosh its painful and I feel lousy..Ive been put (reluctantly by me) onto a course of prednisone to get rid of the inflamation and I think its beginning to help..I still have a hellava hacking cough but the pains getting a little better.At least I dont have to hold my sides when I cough now! The doc says it could take me 6 weeks to recover from this...I have to rest now and try and heal myself.Im looking after James too and he stopped breathing yesterday morning..I rushed in when I heard him choking but I turned him over and he recovered.
I need your positive energies and your prayers.Its so hard for me to cope when Im sick..everything just seems to get to me.

Ny whole family has hacking coughs and we live in four different towns. Thank you for your promise to pray for Betty's sister and we will pray for James. It was good to see that he was baptized.

oh how wonderful that Dr. John will pray for your James...he is such a good servant of the Lord,i'm sure God hears his prayers loud and clear...

I'm soooo sorry to hear you are so sick..i don't know what plurisy is but it sounds like a pneumonia or something that bad...It sounds painful and it must be bad enough that they put you in prednisone....I am on prednisone, it does help but it has pretty strong side effects so i am counting that you won't be on them for more than a few wks...In a small dosage it's alright...
I'm sorry that James stoped breathing. I don't know how you do it. I mean you are strong and full of love but my hat off to you to be able to function even when you are so sick. Of course you are overwhelmed. Just being sick yourself would have been more than enough...I wish i could do something for you. I wish any of us could...I wish i could come and sit with James so that you could rest or make you chicken noodles or something...and trust me i'm not the best cook but...Your family is beautiful and wonderful and i'm glad that God has given it to you. Most people go through an entire life without knowing love, real love. You live it. You all do. I send you my hugs. I send you my heart...i think of you often, i promise. Not in pity but in admiration and as a model for strength and perserverance. Please say hi to James and to you and him my best wishes....We will pray for strength, love and peace....

Dear Lord,
Please lay your healing hands upon Bev, take away her pain, heal her lungs. You promised that anything we ask in the name of your Son would be given. I pray in Jesus' name that she be healed today. I ask that you give James comfort according to your will. Please make his days easier. Precious Lord wrap this family in your arms. Give them rest. For by his stripes we are healed.
I pray the blood of Jesus for this healing.
In the name of your precious Son Jesus.

Hoping that you are feeling a bit better. Hoping that James is okay.
