The Latest

Well life has been difficult since September.  Three different times Myke has been in and out of the hospital critically ill.  The last time was he was in total renal failure.  He had to have a dialysis treatment which turned things around. 

After being released from the hospital it looked as if he was able to go back to work.  He was to be returning to work on Monday December 15th.  On the 12th we went to see his Kidney MD and she informed us that his kidneys decreased in function very quickly and that it was time for full time dialysis.

I have been in a emotional upheaval ever since.  I did not realized that I was so angry at the situation until last week.

Last weekend Shelley and I drove up to Alturas for her stepfather’s funeral.  While heading home on Sunday we had a nice long talk about this and that.  One of the subjects was Myke’s health.  I blurted out and started crying that I am so very angry – angry at the disease that is ravaging Myke’s body.

It is amazing to me though is how God is in the center of all this and that He has held me and Myke together.  In the midst of the grieve and the storm that rages, He is there holding us firmly in His arms. 

I have been asking for a miracle for a healing for Myke but at this time He has chosen not to heal physically but He is healing emotionally.  I am thankful to His Faithfulness.

    I was amazed at how God orchestrated the whole trip, letting us laugh so much on the way up to the funeral, then having this deep talk on the way home. I am so glad we are in a place where we can be honest without offense. Isn’t it great?
    Guess what? Gene admitted this evening he is not the same guy, with the same attitudes at all now that he has been so humbled. He realizes he is using too much weight on the leg and is concerned enough to keep trying to find ways to be ‘independent’ yet wise! Cool, huh?
    God is good all the time, and I still believe the miracles and healing are coming for our men, and for us. Until then, the refiner’s fire is making us fit for heaven! Woo-Hoo!
    Love you, girlfriend…even though we know I am: halogirlwithlotsofpittygems1. LOL!
