Thanks folks :) You have no idea how much this means to me.

I briefly turned my phone on (sorry Jenn, in the hospital, had to turn the phone back off while you were calling) to send out a text message to everyone with a quick update (I'm on the hospital's wireless network right now).

They're thinking it might be a combo of a stroke AND a seizure brought on by the stroke, but they didn't find anything on the CAT scan or EKG (If I'm remembering everything they did this evening).

So they'll be giving her an EEG and MRI scan in the morning. I'm outside of her room right now (they're doing all of the 'nurse/female' stuff, so I'm sitting out here....).

On another note, my paper will be done within the hour. Thankfully, it's actually been a lot more peaceful here, although ma did go to tears once in prayer.

Thankfully, Granny's saved. :) My mother is overzealous (meaning she's one of those people that will do a 'way of the master' on you and just walk up to you and ask you whether or not you're saved and start sharing the gospel with you), so granny's had the gospel handed to her daily. :)

Keep my family in prayer. It's weird saying 'Merry Christmas' to the hospital folk.

Back in the house (been in about an hour). From the looks of things, it probably was a stroke. My mother mentioned to me that when she found my grandmother when she got back home, granny was trying to pull herself up with one arm and the other arm was just hanging limp.

*sigh*

Okay, I think I'm going to get some sleep. It's going to be a weird Christmas....

Thanks again for all the prayers and phone calls and text messages and the posts here. :) You guys seriously have helped. :)

I've been praying for you and your fam since this morning, thanks for the updates Kerry. I pray that in the midst of all that is going on, the grace and peace of God will rest in your household and that the Comforter will continue to keep you and your family. I'm also thanking God for giving you the strength and knowledge to get that paper done! Much love fam.

From my latest blog entry:



Granny's asleep right now.


She'd been sedated most of the day and they've been giving her medicine for stroke and a seizure that was triggered by the stroke (or was it a stroke that was triggered by the seizure ?). She got up and requested some water, but they have to keep her 'empty' for the most part until tomorrow when they do the MRI and EEG scans. Meanwhile, they're keeping her hydrated and fed via IV.


THANK YOU from both myself and my mother for all of the posts on message boards, prayer, text messages, voice messages and support. We're not out of the woods on Granny yet, so just keep her in your prayers. She's 83 and her health has been gradually getting worse over the past 7-8 years or so. And all of the 'major' illnesses always seem to come around Christmas. She may also be having a recurring episode of pneumonia.

I am tired. (physically)



I got my paper done last night, thanks to the hospital's wireless network, so praise God I am done with EDU 520. I think EDU 521 starts next week. Probably overall some of my best work - ever. Unfortunately, the sheer amount of energy it took to stay focused and get my paper done and handle everything else as of late has drained me. It took me 3 hours to put on socks today and I never made it out of the house (I got up around noon, got in the house around 3:30-4:00 am after dropping mom home) to go see my niece, brother or my father.

Quick update for everyone.

My grandmother was moved to a rehab facility around early January. She's been semi-okay there and was making some recovery.

I pretty much told my mother that the stroke was the start of the countdown.

Two days ago, my mother had to have them rush my grandmother to the hospital because of a very VERY bad UTI.

When she got to the hospital, her pulse was 170. After a few things they had to do (I'm not going to be graphic), they put her on some medication and brought her pulse down to 109. They're still trying to get her below 100.

She's been shaky over the past few days.

Well, they just called my mother (5 min ago) and told her that my grandmother's not breathing as well, so she has an oxygen mask on her now and blood thinners.

My grandmother taught me Psalm 23. I still have it memorized to this day because of her.

So prayers for my mother's strength as well as mine and that my grandmother's death would SHAKE UP MY UNCLES enough for them to realize their need for salvation.

I'm already thinking that I'll be the one doing my grandmother's eulogy....since I'm the default 'preacher' in the family.

You all know the drill if you've lost someone nearby.

at the hospital now (wow, do they ALL have wifi now ?).

she's breathing a little rough.

she had low blood pressure the other day when she came in (45 over 15).

She's back up now around 185 over 50. Pulse is still hanging around 114-141. She's had an irregular heartbeat since she was younger.

Thanks for the prayers all.

Going back on hiatus from the board. You can check my blog (still linked in my signature) for updates and I'm usually on Yahoo! instant messenger in the evenings. Feel free to hit me up or leave a message.

God is still Sovereign. All of this falls within His plan for both myself, my mother and all those around us and related to the situation. Our best ultimate good and His ultimate and highest glory.

BC's grandmother passed Saturday. Please continue to pray for him and his family during their time of mourning. Also it would be wonderful if you could shoot him a PM or an email to encourage him as well.


Grace & Peace
