MADE IT TO REHAB!

BRIAN WAS MOVED TO ACUTE REHAB IN WAUSAU, WI ON TUESDAY.  WE LIKE THE FACILITY AND STAFF.  I THINK IT WILL BE A VERY BENEFICIAL TIME FOR BOTH OF US.  I CAME HOME YESTERDAY TO START GETTING THINGS GOING AT HOME.  A TENTATIVE DATE FOR RELEASE FROM REHAB IS DECEMBER 15th.  WE MAY NOT HAVE EVERYTHING IN PLACE AT THE HOUSE BUT WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT AS WE GO ALONG.  I AM GOING TO PICK UP OUR LITTLE ZOE GIRL TODAY.  WE DROPPED HER OFF AT THE KENNEL 36 DAYS AGO.  I HAVE TO DRIVE ALMOST AN HOUR TO GET HER.  IT’S AN HOUR IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OR I WOULD HAVE PICKED HER UP ON THE WAY HOME YESTERDAY.  SHE AND I WILL BE GOING BACK TO WAUSAU NEXT WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.  THEY DO ALLOW PETS THERE SO I CAN BRING HER INTO THE REHAB AND I HAVE A PET FRIENDLY MOTEL BOOKED FOR US ALREADY.  THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF THE PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES.  WE FINALLY SEE A LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS  VERY LONG TUNNEL.  WE KNOW THERE WILL BE A LOT OF ADJUSTMNETS ALONG THE WAY BUT WE WILL CONTINUE TO RELY ON THE LORD FOR HIS STRENGTH AND COURAGE TO FORGE AHEAD.  THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT WE THREE WILL BE TOGETHER.  HOW THANKFUL WE ARE.

I WAS ABLE TO STITCH SOME NEW DESIGNS I HAD BROUGHT ALONG FOR WHEN BRIAN WAS RECOVERING IN THE HOSPITAL AND I’LL BE WORKING ON GETTING THEM TOGETHER AND RELEASED IN A WEEK OR TWO.  I HAVE FIVE NEW CROSS STITCH PATTERNS AND POSSIBLY A NEW PUNCH NEEDLE PATTERN.

THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS TO ALL, LORI

GETTING THERE.....

EVERY DAY BRIAN IS A LITTLE BIT STRONGER.  HE HAS MANY MONTHS OF RECOVERING FROM THE SURGERY ITSELF BUT EACH DAY IS A BLESSING.  HIS SURGERY WAS 4 WEEKS AGO YESTERDAY.  HOW FAR HE HAS COME.  THEY SAY HE CAN GO TO ACUTE REHAB ON TUESDAY.  WE ARE BOTH OVERJOYED AT THIS AND LOOK FORWARD TO BEING HALF THE DISTANCE FROM HOME THAN WE ARE DOWN HERE.  PLUS IT’S ENCOURAGING TO GET TO THE NEXT STEP ON THIS JOURNEY.  I’M HOPING I CAN GET OUR LITTLE ZOE NEXT WEEK BUT HAVE TO SEE AFTER WE GET TO REHAB AND KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT ALL THAT ENTAILS.  WE WON’T KNOW UNTIL THEY ASSESS JUST HOW LONG BRIAN WILL BE THERE.  I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT NEEDS ADJUSTING AT THE HOUSE AND TRY TO GET STARTED ON THAT SO I’LL BE GOING BACK AND FORTH.  WE HAVE NO FAMILY CLOSE SO WILL RELY ON OUR DEAR FRIENDS WHEN WE NEED TO.  MANY HAVE OFFERED TO HELP.  WE THANK EACH ONE FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES.  WE PRAY THE LORD CAN USE THIS TRIAL IN OUR LIVES FOR HIS GLORY.  HE IS EVER FAITHFUL AND OUR HEARTS OVERFLOW WITH JOY AND THANKSGIVING.  LOVE AND BLESSINGS, LORI

A GOOD DAY.....

 Brian was brought to a regular room at about 5:30 this morning. I had to find him when I arrived at 8. It’s a nice room and he is happy with it. He is doing so much better and was more himself today than since we started this journey. He’d been having trouble with confusion at times but today was a very good day. They are keeping their eyes on a few things but he is stable. He is weak and shaky but we will get there. I have no idea yet how long he will be here but he is ok with staying until he is stronger. I hope to scoot home some time next week to take care of some things just for a couple of nights. I want to make sure he is ok for a few days yet. Thank you for remembering us and praying every day. I can’t tell you how much we are comforted and I know the Lord has blessed us. Praise Him! Blessings, Lori

WE ARE BLESSED

Our prayers have been answered. Brian is doing well. No more gastro bleeding since his last scope on Monday. He was alert and more himself today than he has been since the surgery. He can leave ICU when they have a bed available. His kidneys are starting to do their job so that is another blessing. Prayerfully he can get on with the healing process and get out of here. Thank you to all for your constant prayers, kind comments and support. We are ever grateful. Blessings, Lori

NEED MIGHTY PRAYERS....

Monday October 30th~ Today was a rough day.  Brian developed a gastro bleed.  They went in with a scope and cauterized it yesterday morning but this morning he had a bleed again.  He is back in ICU where they did another scope and cauterized it again.  It’s the same area.  They will watch over the next several hours and if it bleeds again they will have to do a more invasive procedure to make it stop.  Please pray it will stop now so no further procedure will be needed.  I am alone here right now and need prayers for strength and courage to do what I need to for him.  Our son Scott was here over the weekend but left yesterday when things looked ok.  I think this is just a bump in the road but it’s making a difficult recovery all the harder.  Thank you so much for your mighty prayers.  Blessings, Lori

A PLAN

Finally we have a plan!  We talked to the doctor today and Brian will stay here in the hospital in Madison, WI for another week or so until he has healed a bit more and then will be going to Acute Rehab in Wausau, WI which is half the distance from here so that will be easier for me to go back and forth to home when needed.  Our little Zoe girl is being kenneled but she is in good hands so she will probably stay there until I know I can go back and forth and bring her to see Brian.  She will be good medicine for him then.  We miss her terribly.  Each day is a gift and we are two weeks into this journey now.  To God be all the glory for his great and tender mercies.  Thank you to each one praying mighty prayers for us.  We know the Lord is at work in our lives and we continue to trust He knows best and that He will use this time in our lives for His good.  Blessings to all, Lori

THE LORD SAYS:

I HAVE HEARD YOUR PRAYER AND SEEN YOUR TEARS.

Now that I’m able to discuss things with Brian he has given permission to tell you what we need special prayers for. Brian is in the percentage of people that have a spinal cord stroke during this particular surgery. As far as the medical professionals are concerned it is permanent but we are not giving up hope for a blessing of healing. We don’t know the full extent yet and our lives may be changed forever but we are blessed to still be here together. Whatever happens we pray the Lord can use this time in our lives for His glory. We have a very long road ahead. We will need your prayers and thoughts for a long time. We thank you so much for all of the caring comments and prayers. Even in the midst of all this turmoil His peace surrounds us. Brian and Lori

UPDATE ON BRIAN...

HE’S FINALLY FULLY AWAKE AND RESPONDING TONIGHT!  I TOLD THE NURSE TO TELL HIM WE LOVE HIM AND WILL SEE HIM IN THE MORNING.  THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS SO PLEASE KEEP SENDING UP MIGHTY PRAYERS FOR HIM.  HOPEFULLY HE WILL HAVE THE VENTILATOR REMOVED TOMORROW.  THANK YOU MY FRIENDS FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND WONDERFUL COMMENTS.  SOME OF YOU I WILL NEVER MEET AND YET YOU CARE ENOUGH TO HOLD US UP IN PRAYER AND THINK OF US.  I CAN NEVER THANK YOU ENOUGH. BLESSINGS, LORI

SURGERY UPDATE......

HELLO FRIENDS, 
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THE COMMENTS, PRAYERS AND KEEPING US NEAR YOUR HEARTS.  BRIAN MADE IT THROUGH THE SURGERY, PRAISE THE LORD!  IT WAS A VERY LONG DAY.  WE ARRIVED AT 5:30 AM AND THEY TOOK HIM TO THE OR AT 7:30.  THE SURGERY STARTED AT 11:00 AM CENTRAL AND WE DIDN’T SEE HIM UNTIL MIDNIGHT IN THE ICU.  HE IS SLOWLY WAKING UP TODAY.  HE IS NOT COMMUNICATING YET.  THEY ARE TAKING HIM FOR AN MRI THIS AFTERNOON AS HE IS NOT MOVING HIS LOWER EXTREMITIES YET.  PLEASE PRAY THERE IS NO PERMANENT PARALYSIS.  WE ARE TIRED BUT DOING FINE.  IT’S SO HARD TO SEE MY BELOVED HUSBAND HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS BUT WE KNOW THE MANY PRAYERS GOING UP FOR US ARE SUSTAINING US AND HOLDING US UP.  BLESSINGS FOR EACH ONE OF YOU FOR CARING.  BRIAN, MYSELF, OUR SON AND DIL APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW.  HUGS TO EACH OF YOU.  LORI

TO ALL PRAYER WARRIORS......


MY HUBBY BRIAN AND I WOULD
ASK AN INTEREST IN YOUR PRAYERS
FOR HIS UPCOMING SURGERY THIS
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13TH AT 
THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN
HOSPITAL IN MADISON, WI AND 
HIS RECOVERY.

SOME OF YOU KNOW THAT FIVE YEARS
AGO BRIAN HAD EMERGENCY SURGERY
FOR AN ASCENDING AORTIC DISSECTION.
WE WERE SO BLESSED THAT HE MADE
IT THROUGH THAT SURGERY AND HAS
BEEN DOING WELL BUT AT THE SAME
TIME THAT DISSECTION HAPPENED 
HE ALSO HAD A DESCENDING ONE.
THEY HAVE BEEN KEEPING AN EYE ON
IT AND IT'S TIME WE HAVE TO REPAIR IT.
THIS ISN'T A ROAD WE WANTED TO 
WALK AGAIN BUT WE KNOW CHRIST JESUS
IS WALKING BESIDE US ALL THE WAY.
THIS WILL BE A VERY MAJOR SURGERY
AND WE WILL BE THERE ABOUT TWO 
WEEKS IF ALL GOES WELL.

HE HAS TO BE AT THE HOSPITAL BY 5:30
AM CENTRAL TIME ON FRIDAY AND IT
WILL BE A VERY LONG DAY.  A BIG
RISK IS SPINAL CORD PARALYSIS.  WE WOULD
ASK YOU TO GUIDE THE SURGEON DR. ACHER
AND HIS TEAM AND THAT THE LORD 
WOULD GO BEFORE US AND PREPARE THE WAY.
HE HAS BLESSED US SO RICHLY AND WE PRAISE HIM
FOR HIS TENDER MERCY.  WE BELIEVE IN THE 
POWER OF PRAYER.  WE 
PRAY THERE WILL BE NO
COMPLICATIONS.  WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS.  I'LL POST HERE 
WHEN I'M ABLE TO GIVE AN UPDATE.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR 
HEARTS MY FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS.

I WILL BE ABLE TO EMAIL ANY E~PATTERNS ORDERED
BUT ANY PURCHASES OF ITEMS TO BE SHIPPED
WILL WAIT UNTIL WE RETURN.  THANK YOU SO MUCH.

MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU......LORI
