UPDATE ON LORI

Saturday, November 24, 2012

SORRY I TOOK A COUPLE DAYS TO UPDATE ON LORI. TRISH PICKED ME UP AT 8PM ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT TO GO UP FOR A VISIT. IN SUPPORTIVE CARE, YOU CAN COME AT ALL HOURS. TWO OF LORI'S FRIENDS WERE THERE AND WERE FEEDING HER CREAM OF WHEAT AND A BISCUIT. SHE CAN'T FEED HERSELF VERY WELL. SHE WAS LAYING DOWN ON HER SIDE IN A PRONE POSITION WITH A FAN BLOWING ON HER THE WHOLE TIME. SHE HAS BEEN HAVING HEADACHES MOST OF THE TIME AND FEELING HOT MOST OF THE TIME. TRISH DIDN'T KNOW WHY THE HEADACHES AND THE DOCTORS DON'T SAY MUCH TO THEM. SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE THERAPY TO TRY TO GET THE SIDE MOBILE AGAIN, BUT THEY AREN'T DOING IT. SHE DOES EAT WELL MOST OF THE TIME, BUT IT IS DIFFICULT. I COULDN'T HELP BUT COME HOME AND CRY WHEN I CAME HOME. SHE SEEMS SO HELPLESS AND SHE USUALLY IS REALLY ACTIVE AND DOES EVERYTHING AT HOME FOR THE FAMILY. SEEING HER LIKE THIS IS HEARTBREAKING.

TRISH WOULD LIKE TO SEE HER COME HOME AND SHE AND GARY WOULD LOOK AFTER HER FOR AT LEAST A WEEKEND. I JUST PHONED HER AND THERE IS NO ANSWER SO TRISH MUST BE AT THE HOSPITAL AND LORI WAS NOT ALLOWED TO COME HOME. I GUESS SHE WAS TOLD SHE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO LOOK AFTER LORI AT HOME. SHE CAN'T GET UP TO EVEN GO TO THE BATHROOM WITHOUT 2 PEOPLE AND WHILE I WAS THERE, SHE IS WEARING A DIAPER AND HAD TO HAVE A BOWEL MOVEMENT AND COULDN'T GET UP TO GO.

I AM PRAYING EVERYDAY THAT GOD WOULD TOUCH HER BRAIN AND COMPLETELY HEAL HER. I TOOK HER UP A CHRISTIAN BOOK FOR HER TO READ IF SHE CAN OR SOMEONE COULD READ IT FOR HER. GOD BLESS HER FOR HOW SHE LOOKED AFTER CHRIS AND BRETT WHO HAVE TUBULAR SCLEROSIS AND NOW SHE IS THE ONLY NEEDING TO BE LOOKED AFTER. LORI SAID TO PASS ALONG THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS.

THANK YOU FOR READING MY UPDATE ON LORI.

    Joan, the hardest thing to go through is to see a loved one in these types of conditions. My son Grant was handicapped all his life before Jesus took him home to be in heaven. I felt so helpless. Eventually Jesus called my son home to be with Him in Heaven. It was the hardest trial ever in my life, but you know Joan, it was like I was so handicapped in every way and needed Jesus to see me through. The trial was so huge and hard. But you know Joan - I met Jesus Christ the son of the Most High God. He helped me through that whole time. I was carried in a powerful love and peace that surpassed all understanding. Jesus I ask that You plz carry Joan, Lori and other friends and family who are supporting Lori and Joan. Glorify Your Name Jesus in this trial. In Your Name Jesus I pray this. AMEN

    Sorry, I've been a bit on the basket case side and I forgot to come check on your friend Lori when I got home from CA. I'll continue to pray for her, her family and you her friend.
    God give you the strength you need to go forth day by day.

    Nothing worse than loving someone and not being able to help other than emotional support. Just keep loving her.
